    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

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

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

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

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

not for kids

Strange, disjointed; full of sex and violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this film is extremely violent and contains numerous explicitly sexual scenes. It's also confusing and disturbing, without any resolution.

  • Families can talk about what it all means, which is pretty hard to decipher. Film buffs and Lynch fans might analyze the filmmaker's techniques, particularly the use of sound and color. But this film is hardly family fare, nor does it lend itself to much discussion.
