Desert Hearts — Crazy For You



Hello everyone!

I love this film — an ultimate timeless classic!

The story to this video is from Vivian’s perspective and how she feels about Cay — that deep inside she is crazy about her but is still coming to terms with those very feelings.

Music is of course by Madonna.

Thanks to Donna Deitch — what a woman to make this film over 20 years ago! Hats off! 🙂 Also thanks to Patricia Charbonneau and most notobly from my point of view Helen Shaver 😉

Enjoy! :))

    I had similar experiences with this movie when I first watched it. Donna Deitch, like Katherine Brooks for Loving Annabelle, created a master piece! Thanks for watching! 🙂

    [Someone posted this link on IMDb] Thanks for an excellent job. I gives a nice flashback to my first viewing in a theatre (I've never seen quite so many patrons tiptoeing in and out of a film after the lights went down.) Maybe you can give some of the footage in BOYS DON'T CRY a similar distillation? I worked as an extra on a show directed by Shaver…heard just her voice first and up popped the image. Very distinctive.

    I can just picture those people sneaking into watch it! Which makes Donna Deitch so much more of a heroine — to make a film at a time when people felt they had to do that. It was ground breaking! You're so lucky to have met her and yes such a distincitive and beautiful voice! I have watced Boys Don't Cry but not as much as Desert Hearts, but I won't rule it out of my thoughts for a new vid! Thanks so much for watching and commenting! 🙂

    Yep,no eyes like not-quite-all-the-way-OUT-yet furtive eyes. PERSONAL BEST first helped me figure myself out. They used the eye-to-eye arm wrestling scene for the first TV spots and my mind immediately went "Uh,oh…that's it!" BOYS is a lot tougher to watch multiple times, but I think you will find it a fertile field of great kissing shots and tentative glances. There's probably a perfect song waiting…I'm thinking that Alicia Keys 'No One' would be great to cut images to.

    Absolutely the most superb editing I've seen on Utube! Mesmerizing. Thanks for your art. — And DH? How can something be so humorful, romantic and revolutionary at the same time. A Classic. A treasure. Forever grateful to Dietch, Charbonneau and Shaver.

    I forgot to credit the essential part: Jane Rule, the AUTHOR of 'Desert of the Heart.' Without her..no DH. She was a brave, out lesbian. ..and a plug here to appreciate our activists — go see the movie about Harvey Milk — not often we get a major film out about our history. (So, hope this wasn't too much or off topic.)

    Thank you "breakerJT" — you've made a marvellous compilation of the best parts of this wonderful film. I've watched the original longer version many, many times and your "Crazy for You" is a terrific shorter version when I need a quick "shot of "DH" lol. Thanks again

    Just saw this movie recently, courtesy of a vintage Siskel & Ebert episode. Can't believe I never knew about it! Interesting to note Donna Deitch mentioning Alex McArthur (Walter) later being chosen for Papa Don't Breach by Madonna, courtesy of this movie. Your choice of music was great, and wonderful effect with the push-ins. I lived in Reno for years, and this is history on film, featuring the interiors of the former Mapes Hotel. Greatly looking forward to reading Desert of the Heart, which I just ordered. Lovely video. 🙂
