Lost Highway? Perhaps never? It's been a long time for me -- it's got one of my favorite soundtracks (which was just released on vinyl by the way, check that out here if you're a fan) but the movie itself has never been one of my favorite Lynchs. This is obviously relative -- a less fave Lynch is still far more interesting than anybody else's movie -- but I'll admit I don't revisit Lost Highway very often.
There are several reasons, a big one being something I've admitted before -- I'm just not a fan of Patricia Arquette? Some actors you just don't connect with and she's always been one for me. Anyway -- so then why is Lost Highway (including Patricia!) this week's banner image, and why am I talking about it now? Because I am nothing if not easily enticed and 1) I watched a documentary about David Lynch yesterday that is about to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival -- it's called Lynch/Oz and it dives into the director's relationship with The Wizard of Oz, and Lost Highway came up several times, and I was like, "Oh right, Lost Highway I should re-watch Lost Highway." And 2) because Lost Highway is getting a 4K re-release this summer (hitting the FLC here in NYC on June 24th) and they've just dropped a trailer for the remaster. Watch here:
