A tragic story of a failed marriage.,
This review is from: Lost Highway [DVD]  (DVD)
This is the new David Lynch. Up to this point Blue Velvet was his only great film, he was making interesting failures, but now this is a new type of film and would lead towards the maturity of Muholland Dr. and Inland Empire.
There are many interpretations of Lost Highway and this is just mine. It's about a man and woman whose relationship is falling apart. The man may have been deeply in love with his wife once but now he suspects that she's having a secret life outside of their marriage. Nothing in this film is made easy for you to understand but we are led to believe that the man kills the wife and is put in jail. The rest of the film is then the dreamlife of the main character, who imagines a life where things turned out differently, but he cant hide from himself and the real life creeps in and so everything that led to the murder is explained in Lynch's dream logic. We enter the mind of man on the edge of sanity. But above all this is a love story. A very sad story of a failed marriage.
This film will stay with you long after it finishes and call you to watch it again.

He means that you say, "There are many interpretations of Inland Empire and this is just mine." Then give your interpretation of Lost Highway.
