Boundary-pushing auteur David Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting realities, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress (Patricia Arquette).
In this Janus Films 4K restoration theatrical re-release, Lost Highway exhibits the more radical end of Lynch’s cinematic career. In the spirit of the re-release, Lynch created a new trailer for the film, shot himself on his iPhone. Starts July 8.
