Alternate Versions

Director Donald Cammell had his name removed as director after the film was re-cut by its American producers Nu Image. In late 90s Hamish McAlpine, head of Metro Tartan distributors in London, successfully negotiated with Nu Image for the UK rights to "Wild Side", and gave Frank Mazzola an opportunity to reconstruct the film. Using a video cut prepared by Cammell as a template, and working from various different sources of footage, the editor set about what must rank as one of the most intricate and thorough restoration jobs in cinema history. The Director's Cut, featuring a new soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, has been released on video/DVD in the UK under the title "Donald Cammell's Wild Side" in 2000. See more »

Classic B-rate Trash Dont miss it.
20 August 1999 | by jce06See all my reviews

Stunning piece of b-rate trash that should be honored not criticized. Cliched but effective plot keeps you frozen to the screen. Heche and Chen's believable love for each other shines through, but it's Walken's over the top performance that takes this film to another level. The scene where Walken says the quote "10 years pal in a cage with a gorilla with a psycho gorilla" is classic walken and that one quote alone is reason enough to check out this film.
