Poster for Lost Highway

David Lynch delivers his signature cinematic surrealism in this 1997 murder mystery starring Bill Pullman as a saxophonist accused of murdering his wife (Patricia Arquette). While on death row, he suddenly – inexplicably – changes into Pete Dayton, a young mechanic leading a completely different life.

A return to the ambitions of the French nouvelle vague of the early 60s, and in particular, to Last Year in Marienbad.

Lynch's mastery of mood through sound, space, decor and lighting means that we're more or less engrossed throughout, even though some of the sillier moments try one's patience.

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

An eerie and edgy outpouring that makes Twin Peaks look like Moonlighting.
