with Lynch the dark recesses of the mind acquire a glamorous attraction

Lynch's counterpart to Mulholland Drive is spellbinding...

From a jazz saxophonist to a creepy obscure young mechanic life. The creepiest from Lynch.
My second favourite Lynch film after Mulholland Drive.
David Lynch makes weird movies. I love every second of them.
Lost Highway is a 1997 American psychological thriller film with elements of neo-noir. Written and directed by David Lynch, the film stars Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, Balthazar Getty and Robert Loggia. Lynch co-wrote the screenplay with Barry Gifford, who also wrote the novel that served as the basis for Lynch's Wild at Heart (1990). The film features the last film appearances of Richard Pryor and Jack Nance, as well as the most recent film to date for Robert Blake.
Lynch conceived Lost Highway after the critical and commercial disappointment of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), a film adaptation and follow-up to the widely successful cult television series Twin Peaks, co-created and co-produced by Lynch. In tradition of most of Lynch's films, Lost Highway has a largely cryptic narrative. Lynch has also declined to offer an explanation of his intentions for the narrative; however, Lynch has stated that the film itself takes place "within the same universe" as Twin Peaks....
