    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a weird movie, in that spooky/sicko, deadpan way that Lynch's movies always are, and it's guaranteed to repel anyone who likes entertainment wrapped in tidy resolutions and optimistic fade- outs. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Lost Highway is unusually bizarre even for this atypical director. Co-written by Barry Gifford, the film ventures deeper into the nearly psychotic supernatural than any feature Lynch has previous overseen. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It's a shaggy ghost story, an exercise in style, a film made with a certain breezy contempt for audiences. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The film actually deserves four stars for its imaginative style and astonishing suspense, zero stars for its shameless exploitation of violent shocks and loveless sensuality. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    David Lynch's eye-popping imagery is buried under an avalanche of self-indulgence. show more

  • 80

    This is delightfully bonkers; an eerie and edgy outpouring that makes Twin Peaks look like Moonlighting. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    A feature-length Twilight Zone episode, filtered -- not entirely successfully -- though the sensibilities of David Lynch and his Wild at Heart collaborator, Barry Gifford. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    Lynch, who penned the screenplay with novelist Barry Gifford (Wild at Heart), seems to be attempting to capture not just a sense of place and time (it never works -- Lost Highway is wholly, irrevocably, out of place and without any linear time or time line to speak of), but also a sense of madness. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    Lost Highway has scattered moments of Lynch's poetry, but the film's ultimate shock is that it isn't shocking at all. show more

    Andy Klein Dallas Observer

    His most thoroughly surreal work since Eraserhead, this two-hour-plus fever dream is more of one piece than Fire Walk with Me and less desperate and jokey than Wild at Heart. show more
