For the 75th birthday of American director David Lynch on January 20th, 3sat will be showing the films “Wild at Heart – The Story of Sailor and Lula” and “Lost Highway” this Friday and Saturday.

With “Wild at Heart – The Story of Sailor and Lula” (USA 1990) shows 3sat the journey into hell of a lawless couple with Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern in the leading roles. Willem Dafoe plays the character of the seedy Bobby Peru. David Lynch’s cult road movie, which runs at 10:25 p.m. today, was awarded the Palme d’Or in Cannes in 1990. There was also a nomination for the Oscar and the Golden Globe. Each for Diane Ladd’s performance by Lula’s mother Marietta Fortune. NDR and MDR will repeat the strip on January 25 and February 6, respectively, in the night program.

“Lost Highway” – David Lynch’s total psychological thriller work of art

“Lost Highway” (USA 1996) follows on Saturday at 10:10 pm. Jazz musician Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) is in a deep mental crisis. He looks suspiciously at his wife Renee (Patricia Arquette) and suspects her of cheating on him. At the same time, other puzzling things are happening. At the center of David Lynch’s fascinating psychological thriller are mysterious impersonations, mysterious, attractive women and an opaque plan of dangerous gangsters who defies premature interpretation.

The soundtrack of this film also includes two songs by the then relatively young German band Rammstein. Legend has it that the rockers David Lynch just sent tracks on the spot. Two actually ended up in the film (“Marry me” and “Rammstein”).
