“I believe it was the legendary Homer Simpson who once gave the ideal description on David Lynch productions. During watching a ‘Twin Peaksu0026#39;-episode he said, `Brilliant…but I donu0026#39;t get itu0026#39;. Too true…you love what youu0026#39;re seeing and you want to be a part of the mysterious Lynch universe! You actually feel the urge to search for solutions, you want to solve the riddle that is Lost Highway and you desperately try to do so…until you realize itu0026#39;s in fact a puzzle that cannot be solved. Therefore, my advice would be: Donu0026#39;t try to be Einstein and develop too many ‘theoriesu0026#39;… just get overwhelmed by Lost Highway and enjoy the mixture of weirdness, violence and erotica you get to see. Itu0026#39;s amazing what David Lynch pulls off here! He serves an absurd and impossible structure that involves an inexplicable metamorphosis of the protagonist and he actually gets away with it!! Meanwhile, he introduces a bunch of bizarre – but extremely fascinating – characters of which you donu0026#39;t know theyu0026#39;re real or just creations of a mentally ill mind. Lynch in top-condition, in other words…you almost start to suspect heu0026#39;s laughing with his audience. The quality of Lost Highway is brought up to an even higher level by the terrific musical score (Angelo Badalamenti), a blasting soundtrack (Rammstein!) and sublime acting. Bill Pullman and Balthazar Ghetty supply each other terrifically, even though they donu0026#39;t have ONE scene together. And Patricia Arquette…either blond or brunette… looks gorgeous. No wonder men in this film fall into madness over her. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLost Highway comes with my highest possible recommendation, yet I still prefer the David Lynch of the lat 70u0026#39;s and 80u0026#39;s. Canu0026#39;t really give a reasonable explanation for this… Films like Blue Velvet and Eraserhead had something extra.”
