Speaking at a Toronto International Film Festival screening of Something Wild last September, the late great Jonathan Demme credited the film with reinvigorating his career and making him believe in himself as a filmmaker after some setbacks and missteps in the early ‘80s. It shows; this unique blend of comedy and thriller delivers an experience like no other. Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels star alongside an explosive Ray Liotta in his first major role; Bmore’s own John Waters also appears. “Demme’s picaresque joyride across the American landscape is still arguably the best thing he’s ever done.”—Geoff Andrew, Time Out
