 "Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round" by Kathleen Murphy in _Film Comment_ (Nov/
Dec, 1990) is a good place to start. Norman K Denzin in his book _Images of
Postmodern Society: Social Theory and Contemporary Cinema" has a chapter on
Lynch, but only a paragraph or two on Wild at Heart. But he captures it
nicely with the phrase "part _Wizard of Oz_, film noir, kinky fairy-tale,
self-satire, soap opera and sexual exploitation...."
