Something Wild

Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Jonathan Demme. USA. 1986. 113min. 35mm. With Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels, Ray Liotta. Demme was at the height of his madcap powers with this quintessential rollicking eighties comic adventure starring a breakout Melanie Griffith as the maniacally free spirited Lulu (donning a Louise Brooks wig) and Jeff Daniels as the buttoned-down yuppie she picks up in a lower Manhattan diner at lunch hour. What begins as a quirky meet-cute transforms into something else—something much wilder—under the director’s sure hand; it’s a movie as unpredictable and daringly shape-shifting as its magnetic main character, and it digs to deeper places than its goofy plot might initially suggest.
