Lost Highway back to product details

Only for true fans of David Lynch

Only true fans of David Lynch should bother with this film. (No relation to me) The artistic style was completely lost on me.

I don't know if it was the intent of the editor or just part of the movie, but the sound was inconsistent. It would be high one scene and too low to hear in the next. My wife and I tried to go to the languages part of the DVD to turn on the English subtitles, as we do on many movies which have actors with strong accents or the like, but the DVD did not have that option.

On the whole, I didnt feel the movie made sense to me. I usually like movies that don't treat you like an idiot and explain every idea presented, but I may just not be smart enough to grasp what the director was trying to say in this movie.

While I recognize that the film is from back in 1997, I would expect the quality of the actual film to be better. Most scenes were extremely grainy. The only thing keeping me from giving it a one rating was the fact that I keep watching until the end, hoping to figure out just what was the point. I never discovered the point. Maybe I was just being overly optimistic. The one other noteworthy review is the performance of Robert Blake. He played a very creepy role and was completely convincing. You will have no problem believing he is capable of murder after watching his performance.

Good movie, lousy DVD

I like this movie. I look at it as sort of a warm-up session for Mulholland Drive.

Why isn't there a W/S DVD of this title (and Wild at Heart, while we're at it)? In the meantime, Green Cine has been kind enough to offer up this Canandian version, which is pan & scan, and kind of fuzzy.
