Film: Wild Side

Wild Side is a 1995 low-budget crime thriller starring Christopher Walken, Anne Heche, and Joan Chen. The film is the last movie that Donald Cammell directed before he commited suicide due to his film being edited behind his back without his consent.


Tropes

  • Executive Meddling: The re-edited cut version of Cammell's film by the studio, and not the version that Cammell originally intended for release, is the reason Cammell commited suicide.
  • Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: The lesbian sex scene between Virginia Chow and Alex Lee / Johanna.
  • In Love with the Gangster's Girl: Alex's problem with Virginia.
  • Suddenly Sexuality: Alex is portrayed as an ardent heterosexual right up until the moment she kisses Virginia in the women's bathroom.
