Lost Highway

A jazz musician accused of murder takes on a new identity and a strange journey.


Why watch this film?

After having developed -with varying success- more traditional narratives in structure with 'Wild at Heart' and 'Blue Velvet', director David Lynch returns to plunge into his surrealist and film noir influences to tell a story that, more similar to 'Eraserhead', escapes the explanations of logic and adopts a texture more similar to that of a nightmare. 'Lost Highway' (also known as 'Lost Highway' and 'Lost Highway', its original title) is a mystery that does not skimp on violence, disturbing images and disconcerting twists, but it does with the explanations. And that's okay: here what matters is the journey, not the destination. As a datum, this is Lynch's first film set in Los Angeles, followed by the narratively similar 'Mulholland Drive' in 2001, and 'Inland Empire' in 2006. Together, they are unofficially known as his 'Los Angeles Trilogy'.
