Lost Highway (Blu-ray)
Directed by David Lynch
Haunting sexuality, ricochet action and fleeting, murderous shadows await you on a journey that begins and ends on the Lost Highway. The successful jazz musician whose marriage is on the rocks... The man in black who threatens to expose him... The young mechanic with links to a powerful mobster... The mobster’s moll, who knows what she wants and the people who can get it for her. These are the riders on the Lost Highway, trapped in their worlds of desire, destiny, and unknown destination, where the truth is always just a short way further down the road. Featuring an electrifying soundtrack and a star-studded cast including Bill Pullman (Malice), Patricia Arquette (True Romance), Robert Blake (Busting), Balthazar Getty (White Squall), Gary Busey (Silver Bullet), Richard Pryor (Blue Collar) and Robert Loggia (Prizzi’s Honor), Lost Highway is an extraordinary, sensual fever dream from legendary filmmaker David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks).
This brand new release is sourced from an older master, but the technical presentation is vastly superior. In every single area that we usually address in our reviews there are very meaningful improvements, and some are so dramatic that they actually make parts of the French release look like upscaled material...If Lost Highway happens to be one of your favorite films, I would recommend that you completely ignore all the drama that social media has fueled in recent days, and only then make an intelligent decision that determines whether you should acquire Kino Lorber's new release....I think that this new release represents a huge upgrade in quality, and for the time being offers the most convincing technical presentation of the film on the home video market. (For what it's worth, our site did not get a screener to offer a review. I purchased this disc on my own because I hoped that it will turn out to be a solid upgrade. It absolutely did). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
