ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review David Lynch's ``Lost Highway'' is like kissing a mirror: You like what you see, but it's not much fun, and kind of cold. It's a shaggy ghost story, an exercise in style, a film made with a certain breezy contempt for audiences. I've seen it twice, hoping to make sense of it. There is no sense to be made of it. To try is to miss the point. What you see is all you get...That's not to say it's without interest. Some of the images are effective, the soundtrack is strong and disturbing, and there is a moment that Alfred Hitchcock would have been proud of (although Hitchcock would not have preceded or followed it with this film). Hope is constantly fanned back to life throughout the story; we keep thinking maybe Lynch will somehow pull it off, until the shapeless final scenes, when we realize it really is all an empty stylistic facade. This movie is about design, not cinema...I have nothing against movies of mystery, deception and puzzlement. It's just that I'd like to think the director has an idea, a purpose, an overview, beyond the arbitrary manipulation of plot elements. He knows how to put effective images on the screen, and how to use a soundtrack to create mood, but at the end of the film, our hand closes on empty air.

Review "Lost Highway" is a mysterious, ultra-Lynchian exercise in Designer Noir. The cult filmmaker's first feature in more than four years sees him traversing familiar roads involving weird crimes, bizarre sex, sometimes freakish characters, societal unease and fully warranted paranoia with characteristic stylistic panache and daring. Although uneven and too deliberately obscure in meaning to be entirely satisfying, result remains sufficiently intriguing and startling to bring many of Lynch's old fans back on board for this careening ride...The narrative strategies of Lynch and co-screenwriter Barry Gifford, who penned the novel "Wild at Heart" that Lynch adapted for his 1990 feature, combine with key casting decisions to create intentional mysteries for which there are no answers...With the exception of the blustery Loggia, performances tend toward the low-key. Getty's relatively uninflected turn as an unexceptional young man led into deep water by a sexpot (virtually an extension of his brief role in "Natural Born Killers") comes off best, as Pullman and Arquette register in just OK fashion...As usual in Lynch's carefully crafted pictures, all technical contributions, notably the artful lensing of Peter Deming and production design by Patricia Norris, are aces.

Andy Klein, Dallas Observer ...thoroughly surreal...[Lost Highway] is more of one piece than Fire Walk with Me and less desperate and jokey than Wild at Heart.
Christopher Hemblade, Empire ...delightfully bonkers; an eerie and edgy outpouring that makes Twin Peaks look like Moonlighting.
Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle ...a weird movie, in that spooky/sicko, deadpan way that Lynch's movies always are...
James Berardinelli's ReelViews ...unusually deeper into the nearly psychotic supernatural than any feature Lynch has previous overseen.
Michael Sragow, The New Yorker ...a compelling erotic nightmare.
