    Lost Highway, David Lynch's first movie in five years, is a virtuoso symphony of bad vibes.

And trust me Will S., I'm not an idiot - I'm much smarter than you. This movie just panders to an audience that desperately wants to think of itself as elitist and high-culture. That is why it has amassed such a cult following, and that is why it has a 9.3 user rating on MetaCritic. Full Review »

If you're someone who enjoys being fed meaning then it's simply not for you. Those prepared to feel their own way and drop the barriers between dream and "reality" will find an intangible joy in unusual and familiar dark places. When I first watched Mulholland Drive I felt cheated, disturbed and confused. I've since learned to give in to the confusion and explore all the gaps between my stupid expectations. I find it rather offensive that Mulholland Drive has such a high rating in comparison to Lost Highway and can only assume that it's due to the nudity and lesbian scenes. I really hope that isn't true. David Lynch uses sex as a vehicle for something far more erotic and devastatingly honest. His movies leave me twisting for truth and dreaming within dreams that turn on themselves and walk their way "back" into life. I will always have a sincere love and respect for the artist that showed me what I want by failing to deliver what I learned to need. Thank you for denying me this and granting me so much more.

A possible Doppelgänger lead character, Fred, and a mysterious unsolved crime. It's very difficult to understand this film with first view. It's necessary to watch again. Interesting film no logic. It's an avant-garde movie. Full Review »
