Something Wild is a 1986 American action comedy film directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels and Ray Liotta. It was screened out of competition at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival. This film has some elements of a road movie, and it has acquired a certain cult status.


In New York City, Charlie Driggs (Jeff Daniels) is a seemingly conventional banker whose wife has left him. In a café, an adorable brunette (Melanie Griffith) who calls herself Lulu spots him leaving without paying. After a teasing confrontation, the two leave in a car that, Lulu says, she acquired from a divorce. They embark on a bizarre adventure, including crashing and abandoning the car, stealing from a liquor store and leaving a diner without paying. Believing Charlie to be married, Lulu discloses her real name is Audrey, and takes him to visit her mother, Peaches. Audrey now adopts a different persona, becoming a demure platinum blonde. Coming to accept Audrey's free-wheeling lifestyle, Charlie realises he is falling in love with her.

En Mai 2011, Neil Young conduit une Crown Victoria 1956, depuis sa ville natale idyllique de Omemee (Ontario), jusqu'au mythique Massey Hall de Toronto, où il assure en toute intimité les 2 dernières date de sa tournée mondiale. Sur la route, Young raconte ses souvenirs de jeunesse à Jonathan Demme, réalisateur oscarisé pour Philadelphia et le Silence des Agneaux. Demme,collaborateur et fan de longue date du musicien, a su capter ces instants de pure intimité, leur donnant une ampleur sans pareil en les accompagnant d'extraits de concert de l'artiste. Des performances live sublimes, incluant des titres extraits de son album Le Noise, les grands classiques "Ohio", "Hey Hey, My My","I Believe in You", et les inédits "Leia" et "You Never Call". A travers la musique et les histoires personnelles de Neil Young, Demme nous plonge de façon introspective et rétrospective dans le coeur et l'âme d'un artiste de légende.

Le journaliste Jean Dominique, militant avec sa femme Michèle Montas pour une information accessible par Radio Haïti-Inter en Haïti, relate différents épisodes de sa lutte. Le récit direct et honnête qu’il fait, à partir de 1986 à son ami Jonathan Demme et le tournage dans le pays, montrent toute la sympathie et la solidarité que réserve le peuple haïtien à ceux qui prennent réellement son parti, en même temps que le caractère périlleux de la promotion de l’information libre dans le pays. Combattant et exilé, celui qui se faisait appeler l’agronome, en fonction de sa formation de base, n’a jamais interrompu sa lutte jusqu’à son assassinat en 2000.
