Movie Info

Set in a city suspiciously like Los Angeles, both blazingly modern and resolutely retro in look and feel. A jazz musician, tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. In a parallel story, a young mechanic is drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that both women may, in fact, be the same woman. The men are also connected by a mysterious turn of events that calls into question their very identities.

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.
