Lost Highway

David Lynch

feature film

1997

A willfully obscure and visceral thriller in which time and character are unsettlingly flexible and the rules by which viewers might be expected to deduce the plot lines are constantly altered.

Structure

Here we have all the characteristic atmosphere and visual intrigue of a conventional thriller: sexy, sumptuous and full of night scenes, yet almost immediately time and reason start to loop back on themselves. We are no longer just watching. We are drawn into the texture of the film by our own uncertainties and by our need to make sense of what we are being shown.
