Lost Highway

Lost Highway ★★★★

It’s the kind of intellectual porn that you’ll hurt yourself trying to make sense of, but it leaves the David Lynch mark on your forehead like an oversized ring. If you’re coming from this hoping for another Blue Velvet, perhaps adjust your expectations. But if you haven’t lost your hard on for Eraserhead, take aim at this one. 

Having said that, I found this a great work that challenges the audience in only the way a Lynch film could. It’s not for the passive moviegoer; it’s a curveball of a mindfuck. It has an ensemble cast of Hollywood weirdoes with everyone from Mink Stole to Marilyn Manson to Gary Busey. It’s dark, sexy and surreal — impressive in how visceral it gets.
