Lost Highway

Lost Highway ★★★★½

It seems that there are at least two ways to enjoy a David Lynch film. One is to expect it to make sense and do everything you can to analyze the shit out of it until it does. The other is to just revel in the weirdness and the creativity and not worry about making all the pieces fit together.

On my first watch of Lost Highway, I can't possibly put into words what the fuck happened. I feel like there are things I implicitly understood about the narrative and the connection between the two halves of the film, but what I took away from it was a wordless feeling of unease and anxiety. I don't want to think about it anymore, so I'm just going to accept that it's amazing and try my best to move on. Lost Highway may very well become one of my favorite films if I watch it a few more times, but I'm not sure I could handle the experience again.
