The second half isn't as absorbing as the first, which is almost full blown horror. The lingering shot in the corridor after Patricia Arquette steps out - pure terror. I forgive the drop of intensity midway through because of the outcome with the spiral structure (that was strangely pythagorean). Although, the weirdest part of this film is how it could very well be Lynch's premonition of Ryan Gosling's career.
95/100 (Tekrar izlenebilecek zamanı arıyordum. Gerçekten en doğru vakti buldum sanırım. Ve şuna kanaat getirdim ki Pulp Fiction ve Lost Highway sakin kafayla, gündüz gözüyle, hatta alkolsüz izlenecek son filmlerdir. Bu filmi olağanca geç bir saatte, bulanık kafayla ve biraz alkollü izledim. Ve film bitişiyle Rammstein'in gerçek keyfine vardım "Sonu elektrikli sandalye olsa bile keşke biz de bu rüyaları görebilsek"..)
This would have been better as a 20 minute montage. It looks and sounds great, but I don't feel that there's enough substance to last almost two hours. Lynch is a genius and the worlds he creates are brilliantly dark and enthralling, but 'Lost Highway' lacks almost any magnetism for me. It's just too confusing. I don't think I should have to watch it 10 times or google the ambiguous details before I 'get it'.
un nudo mental tipico de Lynch, jugando con tomas y excelente soundtrack, logrando mantener atrapado al espectador a pesar de que por momentos puede ser un poco lento, pero ese es el estilo de Lynch juega con eso para lograr el suspenso necesario y uno termina entrando en esta cinta, tratando de desenredar el nudo de esta trama...
Lynch is a really intelligent director. He plays with all the possible tools to create a huge cloak of illusion that causes throughout the film sucessive "mind-fucks". In "Lost Highway" I really "lost" the control of the story, such a deep thriller with Arquette doing her best.
re-rating. To rewatch this film was mainly the fatigue of a confrontation with a language that no longer enchants me. That is, if remains fairly effective Lynch's idiosyncratic imaginary, what i detected above all- as i was moving away from his spell -were tricks of shuffling and give a nth variation of an image style, with a too easy concession to an uninterruptible juke-box and many sequences of a doubtful taste.
FUCK! Absolutely brilliant! This is the kind of film that takes you on a magic ride! It's sheer magic what mr. Lynch did here: the writting, filming, casting, everything! Bill Pulmann was nothing less than perfect for the role! One of the most scary twisted movies I've ever watched and you just don't want it to end.
It's refreshing to see a film that unfolds a story and carries its narrative the way a dream/nightmare does. Perfect title track by David Bowie too. Having not seen his work for 15 years or so, I'd forgotten that I like David Lynch. Re-watched this last night to prepare for reading Lynch's new self-help book on transcendental meditation and the artistic process!
