Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Set in a city suspiciously like Los Angeles, both blazingly modern and resolutely retro in look and feel. A jazz musician, tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. In a parallel story, a young mechanic is drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that both women may, in fact, be the same woman. The men are also connected by a mysterious turn of events that calls into question their very identities.

Trivia

  • David Lynch wrote the script with Barry Gifford, who wrote the book Wild at Heart (1990). Lynch said that he got the name for this project from a page in Gifford's book. He said that on that page he saw the words "Lost" and "Highway" and the words clicked with him.

Metacritic

75

It's a weird movie, in that spooky/sicko, deadpan way that Lynch's movies always are, and it's guaranteed to repel anyone who likes entertainment wrapped in tidy resolutions and optimistic fade- outs.

Lost Highway is unusually bizarre even for this atypical director. Co-written by Barry Gifford, the film ventures deeper into the nearly psychotic supernatural than any feature Lynch has previous overseen.

It's a shaggy ghost story, an exercise in style, a film made with a certain breezy contempt for audiences.
