This fine DVD re-release for Lost Highway will hopefully open it up to a wider audience. Alongside Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, this is one of Lynch's most significant unsung works. A critical and box office catastrophe on release, it has in recent years thankful been reassessed in some quarters. Lost Highway was an experimental film, genuinely before it's time, and is, in most respects, still way ahead of the pack.
Bill Pullman stars as Fred Madison, a man with a marriage that is falling apart and a crumbling psychological state. Convicted of the murder of his wife (Patricia Arquette), he is put on deathrow, where he goes through the most uncanny transformation...
Much has been said before about the impenetrable nature of Lost Highway's story. And while it is not an easy film at times, there is a strong narrative which makes sense if you engage with it. However even if you don't fully 'get' it, Lost Highway is still so rich. One of the few films I can think of which is actually just as enjoyable if you don't know what's going on. The tone achieved by Lynch in the opening 40 minutes is awesome and remains just about the best sequence in cinema of recent times.
This is a film where all the elements are alive for the viewer. The sound design is meticulously thoughtout to help build the mood and every single shot is just gorgeously framed. The three leads are terrific, and rewatching this edition I continue to be surprised that Balthazaar Getty hasn't broken through since.
But how does this edition compare to the one before it? Very well. The picture has been cleaned up quite a bit (the deep blacks of the opening credits made me wonder exactly what ratio the film was in for a moment).

Having purchased and returned the debacle that was the David Lynch Blu Ray boxset, I just wanted to write a quick review to confirm that, unlike the boxset version of Lost Highway, this standalone release is NOT faulty, and does not skip/ jump/ freeze at the (approximately) 1hr 20min mark.

As far as I'm aware, Universal have yet to give an indication of when they'll sort out the problems with the boxset, so I've started to purchase them individually. Please also note that the standalone Blu Ray's DON'T come with the postcards of the disc covers that come with the boxset, which is a bit of a shame, but I'd prefer a working film to a postcard.

Although I haven't purchased it yet (and am unlikely to at this stage), I understand that the sound issues with the Fire Walk With Me Blu Ray release are on both the boxset AND standalone releases, so I'd guard against purchasing that one yet, as we all know how important sound is in a David Lynch film!

Five stars, of course, for a fantastic film. As you'd expect from Lynch: weird, wonderful, and able to get completely under your skin. Others have written much better reviews of the film itself. I just wanted to clarify on the technical issues.

I'm not going to review the film because if you're looking at this you already know what it's about! (or go to imdb.com)
Instead I'll review the DVDs.....
Just watched this new edition, released in UK 6 Feb 2006, last night on 80" screen. Looks and sounds fantastic!
No cigarette burns (as per old R2 & R4) or any film blemishes or artifacts at all. Anamorphic 2.35:1.
Daylight scenes looks fabulous, but in some of the darker scenes (mainly in their house) there is some grain but not distractingly so.
The DTS is very good, extremely wide ranging and very deep when it needs to be - gave my M&K 350 sub a good workout.
Marilyn Manson & Rammstein sounded excellent as well as Angelo Badalamenti's score.
No sync problems ala the German version.
The menu's are moving and very "David Lynch" and include a 'who's who' which when you select a character name it plays a small clip of them from the film.
The second disc totals 90+mins and has 2 interviews with David Lynch 2005 & 1996, and 1996 on set interviews with Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, and Robert Loggia.
A modern making of, a 1996 featurette (which features the rest of the 1996 David Lynch interview)the teaser trailer and the October Film Distributers Theatrical trailer (which seems slightly out of focus?)
It comes in a digipak with a clear slipcase which has the writing on it (ala the first R1 version of SAW) and is even reversible!!!

Most of the time, a David Lynch movie only seems odd because he chooses to film occurances that could happen in every day life however sublime they may be. He shows people acting strangely in ordinary environments, which is something we have all done at some point or other. I've sat with friends and discussed goings on and plot theory to all of Lynch's films, but none have hurt my head more than this. A friend of mine said he saw an interview with Lynch where he was asked what on earth Lost Highway was all about. Lynch declined to say - perhaps even he doesn't know. What he did say though, is that every time someone walks into and out of a shadow, a metamorphosis takes place. This happens a lot in the first half, so much so that you wish the characters would just fit stronger light bulbs.
But one thing is for sure, whether it is about reincarnation, mistaken identity, parallel lives, or just being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it is certainly a tour de force on the senses. With the exception of a very eerie scene at a party, not much happens in the first half, and it is not until the arrival of Balthazar Getty that anything really starts to happen. But you have to keep watching none the less. Lynch employs some unusual and out of character camera effects that cast a strange atmosphere over everything, and as for the score, well Angelo comes up trumps again.
What ever you do though, don't put it on if you are feeling sleepy. It is so dark and brooding that you will be in the land of nod in no time at all.
As far as content on the DVD goes it is pretty shocking... not even a trailer, but perhaps the film would be ruined if you did know what was going on, so the absence of a "making of" featurette is welcomed. A commentary would have been nice but I suspect it would have been mostly silence.
