lost highway

It's been a very long break, for which i deeply apologize, but the thing is that i've really been terribly busy. Which unfortunately means that i didn't have much time to watch movies, as much i was craving for them, and that i had even less time to post. Hopefully, i'm getting back on track.

Lost Highway is a David Lynch movie. For any regular movie-watcher, this should say pretty much. Because i believe that any regular movie-watcher has a strong opinion on Lynch and his style.

Personally, i love Lynch and his movies for several reasons. First of all, because in my opinion, they provide a very engaging perspective on dysfunctional minds. I mean if you happen to watch some Discovery FBI or forensic files on psychopaths with a totally deviant behavior, or just read something related and you find yourself wondering what on earth could drive a person mad enough to commit something totally out of the ordinary, movies like Lost Highway might actually provide some relevant insight. David Bowie singing "I'm deranged" at the beginning and at the end of the movie is no surprise, or coincidence from this point of view.

Second, there is the soundtrack. As far as i am concerned, the soundtrack helps a lot in building the perfect atmosphere and inducing the viewer a very "accurate" state of mind in accordance with the movie. No wonder: we have Trent Reznor working a lot for Lost Highway soundtrack, which is obviously "psychological" enough, and then there are Bowie, and Manson, and Lou Reed...just to give you an idea.

The plot, in brief, would sound like this: after a weird encounter at a party with some obsessively funny-looking man, some guy is accused of murdering his wife, but is curiously "replaced" the next day with a young mechanic, and has to start it all over. As this fascinating nightmare unravels, keep in mind the fact that it's like when you're lost or unsure on a lost highway and you just go with the flow...After all, "i think there is no such thing as a bad coincidence."

Lost Highway is one of my favorite movies. It's mind blowing, I've watched it many times and the story doesn't loose its charm. David Lynch is the best. Also the movie has a good soundtrack, David Bowie, Rammstein, Merilyn Manson and ofcourse great Angelo Badalamenti's music. I've wrote a review for Mulholland Drive, another movie directed by David Lynch, you can find it on my blog.
