"Lost Highway is delightfully bonkers...eerie and edgy." —Christopher Hemblade, Empire Magazine
"The director's purest exercise of style." —Richard Brody, The New Yorker
25th ANNIVERSARY / NEW 4K RESTORATION
Includes a pre-recorded intro by David Lynch!
Fred (Bill Pullman) is an L.A. saxophonist whose disintegrating marriage to Renee (Patricia Arquette) is further complicated when he receives cryptic surveillance tapes of their home, and a mysterious figure from Fred's dreams (Robert Blake) visits him in the waking world. A quintessentially Lynchian film, Lost Highway pulls viewers into a hallucinatory world where time and space blur, and the narrative unfolds in mysterious and perplexing ways. Although it received mixed reviews during its initial run in 1997, the film has since garnered a cult following, as most of Lynch's films do, and earned its place in the director's decidedly unique canon.
Supervised by director David Lynch, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a Scanity film scanner from the 35mm original camera negative. The near-field remaster of the original 5.1 soundtrack was made from the 35mm magnetic track and mix—supervised by Lynch and rerecording mixer Ronald Eng. The film is presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1.
