I saw this movie in the theater in 1992, and in 1994 I rented it from my video store. It was a warm winter evening. I was a teen with an ex-girlfriend, but it was over before I could think about how to cope with a breakup. So I just watched it with a warm mood. I later rented the documentary "Something Wild" and found myself wondering why the filmmaker had not just made an instructional video for us. The movie is based on "Made for Love" a novel by Jeff Baena, which we have all seen a few times in our own lives. The movie is beautifully shot and, except for one or two fairly long sex scenes, is mostly silent. The film is a true story, but is mostly told through the narrative of an eight year old boy named Puff. His father is killed in the Korean War, and his mother, a young shy girl who lives in a housing project, is trying to put food on the table for her children. His father's military skills, especially his ability to climb into the window of a vacant apartment building, make him a sought-after candidate for the Army. Puff learns that his father, who was also the victim of a car accident, died in a wreck years earlier and returned to Vietnam for a year to get his wounds treated. He has three older brothers, and Puff stays with them until his mother dies and his younger brothers move out. He gets into trouble and is sent to a psychiatric hospital. Puff gets some help from a young nurse who has a strange hobby, washing her children's undershirts. Her efforts to show Puff how to be a good man and a good father leave him with a child-like sense of responsibility for his younger brother. But his work is so much easier when he doesn't have to deal with the pressures of a mother that never let him forget about her. And he gets a surprising father-like figure in the nursing home resident, played by Dennis Quaid. In the end, he comes to the realization that he is special, and his sense of responsibility comes out in his work as a handyman. The real story of "Something Wild" is how a young boy learns the value of family. "Something Wild" is not meant to be taken seriously. But it is an insightful look at a kind of child who is not ready for a real relationship with his mother. It is an unsettling story, full of raw feelings and strong emotions, but also a reminder that sometimes we can take things as they are and ignore the importance of the relationships that keep us sane.
