A classic Lynch experience

Lost Highway is a perfect example of Lynch's "dream sequence" type films. The veil between past and present is very thin and creates a time loop where the pieces don't all fit together perfectly. Lynch explores a vast array of different sensory experiences ranging from strobe lights to a cacophony of chaotic jazz. This movie is a fantastic visual and audial experience.

a neverending road...

31 Days of Spookoween: DAY TWELVE

Film #12: Lost Highway (1997)

Review: "We've met before, haven't we..."

Chilling words from a stranger...made even more chilling thanks to the smiling, devilish performance from Robert Blake who plays the horrifying Mystery Man, a major piece to the brilliant puzzle that is "Lost Higway".

"Highway" is one of Lynch's most accessible surrealist works, but that does not mean it is not at all challenging or mindbending or experimental, it has all of those elements firmly in place and more. It is a wild, entertaining, and enigmatic ride powered by a storm of engaging twists, dark plots, and unique visuals. The lighting gives it a glossy, exaggerated look, almost as if it were some kind of cross between a whimsical fantasy and stylized hard boil detective flick, but it is neither of these things. What is it, you may ask? It is a David Lynch film, I will respond. And that is all you need to know.

It is scary and brilliant and dark, it embraces speculation and analysis while also remaining coherent, its story and characters are enough to keep the viewer engaged; the more difficult riddles and metaphors are interwoven with action and music and horror and drama, it's a non stop rocket ride through Hell, it's a plunge into the darkness of death, that everlasting, unwinding road with the power to mesmerize, confuse, and frighten.

The way I see it, the film can be split into three lose parts. Part one is pure Lynchian surrealism, it is deliberately slow and yet it still keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat, always anticipating the next move a character may take, the next dramatic shift in the story. Its atmosphere is one of absolute dread and unbearable if often unexplained tension, it is Lynch doing what he does best. The second part speeds things up a bit. Sexy, funny, fast paced, and bizarre, it's easily the most digestible and coherent part of the movie, encapsulating the mood of a film noir and a 90's crime thriller peppered with heavy doses of the surreal...and it steadily inclines into the third half, where things get really weird. It's a cross between the surrealistic, blood curdling, mind blowing horror of the first half and the fun, exciting weirdness of the second, culminating in one huge avant garde masterpiece work watching over and over and over again, allowing that vision of the infinite highway to swallow whatever is left of your soul and haunt your nights for all the years to come...

Some movies should never be born

I study cinematography, i just couldn't watch the movie till the end, the light and the scene is so badly lit i think an amateur directed the cinematography in this movie. Nevertheless i donČ› judge a book by its cover, if the story is good i can handle the fact that the director of photography was terrible at his job, but the story wasn't good, it was awful, its just a mix up of twisted boring unrelated events, nothing connects to nothing, there is no sense to the movie..waste of budget and production time.
