David Lynch's Lost Highway - 3/25/2008 (Region 1)

Universal Home Video has announced a new edition of the 1997 film Lost Highway which stars Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, and Balthazar Getty. This David Lynch directed film will be available to own from the 25th March, and should retail at around $19.98. The film itself will be presented in anamorphic widescreen, along with an English Dolby Digital track. As far as we know, the only extra material on this one will be a 10-Part Multi-Angle Interview with David Lynch.

Third trip to the well for me. At least all 3 of my copies won't have the same extras. Here's hoping for HD... but I'm just glad to finally have it on R1.

I'll only buy it if it comes out on HD DVD. Otherwise, my MK2 2-disc SE import is more than adequate for me.

Sticking with my French MK2 edition. And this is yet another missed opportunity by Universal to release an HD-ready transfer on HD-DVD, which I most definitely would've double-dipped for. Nice job, boneheads.

I will gladly sell off my MK2 & Australian versions if an HD DVD becomes available, otherwise the two I have are "good enough". I couldn't justify the purchase of another standard definition disc of Lost Highway to the girlfriend at this point...

I strongly suggest that anyone who wants this on HD should email Universal now. Maybe it'll sway them to have the HD released at the same time as the SD...

Finally, definintely picked it up. The movie that introduced me to Rammstein's music before they became big in the US. I loved that soundtrack.

Oh boy are YOU in for something!

I defintely want to see this again since I last saw in on VHS, but I was hoping for a Lynch commentary. Out of all of his films, to me this one was the biggest head scratcher of them all. WTF was going on?!

Anyone else have unconditional love for when Robert Loggia attacks the motorist? The scene is hilarious, ranks up there with Walter's "Over the line!" meltdown in Lebowski.

Nice one, very funny. Lynch despises commentary tracks, seriously.

It's Lynch wish fulfillment. He was in a similar situation getting tailgated, and he wanted to do what Loggia did.

I agree that it's the most perplexing of all of Lynch's films (even "INLAND EMPIRE" has a more easily decipherable narrative). Although I'm certainly not able to reconcile everything, I'm inclined to agree with those that consider this narrative (or two narratives) to be complementary in theme and which come together in something akin to a Mobius Strip.

but what is "Multi-Angle" means? They shot Lynch from different angle while he is talking...?


I already owned the R2 PAL DVD and very satisfied with it. I am curious to see how much R1 DVD can improve.

The movie has very "difficult" picture quality... soft-focus, very dark, a lot of shadow... if I remember correctly, I read somewhere that they shot some of the scenses with stalking (or a pcs of fabic) in front of carmera lense...

But one thing for sure, it has one of the most earth-shaking/scary soundtrack...

Good enough for me, all I really care about is a great transfer of the film. The Lynch interview is a nice bonus.

I posted the artwork on the 1st post, I had a feeling that if Universal ever released Lost Highway in the USA on DVD, it would be a Focus Features release. I am with Drop, all that matters here is that Universal delivers a stunning video transfer of the film. I also cannot believe that anyone is complaining at all about this release. We have waited so long for Universal to release Lost Highway on DVD. I know I am stoked about this release.

Who's complaining? Now that there have been excellent releases of this film on the market for some time now (with much nicer artwork/packaging and extras, as well as DTS tracks), it's just hard to get particularly excited by a ho-hum edition like this one.

Of course, I hope it'll be the bestest transfer of them all, but to justify a purchase it would have to be a rather obvious improvement in video quality and the same or not much inferior to the mK2's DTS track in audio quality. I'm not holding my breath.

I like the cover art. That's exactly what it should be. Are they seriously giving this a Dolby Surround track only? Not even 5.1? That has to be a mistake. I'll still pick this one up, though. Anyone know if this is being supervised by Lynch like most of his other DVD?

It's very easy to get excited if you only purchase DVDs that work in region 1. The transfer will be the same from the other editions, and I imagine so will the audio. Plus it'll cost probably $15 week of release. Makes me happy.

It will almost certainly have better audio quality than the MK2 release. The MK2 disc is in PAL format, with the attendant pitch increase.
