Lost Highway

Lost Highway occupies an odd and lonely place in David Lynch’s filmography. After the Twin Peaks series and film, it seemed obtuse even for him, but it now plays like a study for the fragmenting narratives of Mullholland Drive and Inland Empire. It’s also his most noir-soaked work, and the pleasures of watching Lynch play with the femme fatales and doublecrosses and midday glare of his hard-boiled L.A. predecessors abound and resonate. -LG
