Audience Reviews for Wild Palms
Featuring a stellar cast, production by Oliver Stone, and direction (in part) by Kathryn Bigelow, the mini-series Wild Palms is a unique blend of drama and science fiction that feels only barely removed from the early 90s moment in which it was conceived. Somewhere between Twin Peaks and cyberpunk lies Wild Palms, a surreal descent down the rabbit hole of shifting realities and mind control that doesn't quite cohere into something truly masterful but provides plenty of well-crafted, thought-provoking fun nonetheless.
Gave this a re-watch only to find that it didn't hold up as well as one might hope, but still has some nice stylish flourishes. I'd almost compare it to David Lynch in certain aspects, but it ultimately loses points due to James Belushi's sketchy acting abilities. Worth a look, but nothing mind-blowing.
Very David Lynch like TV Series. Bizarre, reality bending, conspiracies, and wonderfully crazy characters. One of my favorite movies, that was way ahead of its time and especially surprising that it was made for normal broadcast TV.
