Lost Highway (1997)

Synopsis: Ok, so there’s this saxophone player who killed his wife, but he was really set up by the Devil (or Jealously, or whatever), who looks like a creepy version of Beretta, and then he turns into this young guy while he’s on death row, and there’s this gangster, and.... this movie makes absolutely no sense.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Haunting sexuality, ricochet action and fleeting, murderous shadows await you on a journey that begins and ends on the Lost Highway.”

What Did I Learn?: Any time you see stretches of the highway at night in a David Lynch film, you know that something weird is about to happen.

Really?: Did Gary Busey really play the sanest character in this mess of a movie? (BTW: Richard Pryor makes a short cameo appearance, and this was his very last flick.)

Rating: Lost Highway is a huge disappointment from David Lynch after the brilliance of Blue Velvet. The plot is nearly incomprehensible, and long stretches pass by as nothing really happens. Don’t take a ride down this stretch of road. 4/10 stars.
