Movie Info

Five years after the critical and commercial disappointment of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, director David Lynch returned to the big screen with this cryptic thriller about confused identities and erotic obsession. Fred (Bill Pullman) is an avant-garde jazz saxophonist who shares a luxurious but fashionably barren house with his wife Renee (Patricia Arquette). Fred suspects that Renee may be unfaithful to him, but realizes he has bigger things to worry about when a series of videotapes appear

Beyond subversive and downright ahead of its time.

Strange, disjointed; full of sex and violence.

Here, the road leads nowhere in particular; what you pay for is the ride.

August 20, 2009 Full Review Source: City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

What Lost Highway lacks in originality--compared to the rest of Lynch's oeuvre--it regains when compared to anyone else's films.

Its demented darkness actually coallesces into a strange kind of giddy joy - not unlike the rush of adrenaline one feels after a brush with danger.

It's pensive male anxiety, and for some cultural reason it's easier for audiences to accept female hysteria than the insecurities of men.

Mesmerizing yet cold and remote -- an exotic fish we can't touch.

The film begins promisingly, when a young couple gets paranoid over intrusion into their home, before turning into a bizarre yarn that many viewers will find confusing; even so Lynch's direction is mesmerizing from start to finish.

It's one of the downright spookiest films I've ever seen, and it gives me chills just to recall it.

With the hindsight of Mulholland Dr, the film is a lot more intelligible, with plenty of Lynchian themes in full blossom and a handful of excellent performances.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Ambicioso do ponto de vista narrativo e fotografado de forma sombriamente evocativa, o filme merece créditos por acreditar na inteligência do espectador, mas acaba parecendo um exercício para o superior Cidade dos Sonhos.

Cinema em Cena

Director David Lynch, the master of creepiness, is back with a femme fatale film that's sinister, disquieting and deliberately obscure.

Too weird, even for David Lynch

Continues David Lynch's efforts to make us connoisseurs of mystery rather than robots of reason.

The Man With No Eyebrows will go down in my books as the single greatest fictitious creation of all time.

Best on the big screen for the full effect. Consume alcohol afterwards.

Lynch's bizarre, dream-like approach is as fascinating as ever... and every bit as frustrating as well.

If one wishes to make sense of this film, it would have to be done on a metaphorical level.

Audience Reviews for Lost Highway

A jazz saxophonist is accused of murdering his wife; on death row, he mysteriously suddenly turns into a young mechanic who is released and has an affair with a gangster's moll who looks exactly like the dead wife. A lush and sensuous Lynchian nightmare borrowing equally from horror movie and film noir; much like his succeeding film, MULHOLLAND DRIVE, except more baffling.

Another David Lynch film that will baffle you as you try to work out what is real, what isn't, what is going on? It's not quite as strange as some of his other films, but that's not saying much. He does have a slick style though, one film that will make you think about it long after viewing.

Underrated and creepy as hell, Lost Highway is two stories mashed together. Robert Blake is one of the scariest things I've ever seen in this one.

As years pass by i've started to like this one a lot more. Pullman plays a great lead role, and Robert Blake is pretty damn creepy.

    3. Fred Madison: I like to remember things my own way.
    4. Ed: What do you mean by that?
    5. Fred Madison: How I remembered them. Not necessarily the way they happened.
