This shocking confrontation with the impossible - a person who seems to be in two places at once - forces Fred and the viewer to ask certain questions: Why does Fred suddenly feel like a stranger in his own life? I finished at about 1 in the morning. Next morning the guards and warden are freaked to discover Pete Dayton Balthazar Getty , a 24-year old mechanic, in Fred Madison's cell. She wants to stay home and read. The image of a fireball being stuffed back into the cabin is a perfect metaphor for this ridiculous project of post-hoc repression, of trying to turn chaos back into order. All along, Fred is being led deeper into the darkness, signifying his willing acquiescence to evil. Pete returns home, where he has been missing from for several days.
This is a nightmare before execution. The only question remaining is whether or not Fred has experienced both a physical and psychological transformation with Pete, or if something more sinister is at play. I'll explain what I mean. One of the most accepted theories since Lynch or Gifford never admitted any explanation to the strange going-ons in the movie is that the whole movie takes place in Fred Madison's mind. And Patricia Arquette either blond or brunette looks gorgeous.
The beauty of the half-naked Patricia Arquette is astonishing and her strip-tease is very erotic. What to make of the ending? To be fair though, it's a heady, obsessive exploration of the relationship between religion, philosophy and mathematics, so anyone expecting a movie about steak and kidney might be disappointed. Clearly, as with most of David Lynch's films, Lost Highway is not for everyone. How we detect and discover is what this is about and is so superior to what we normally encounter, you should watch it. Lynch in top-condition, in other words you almost start to suspect he's laughing with his audience. Ya pokoknya gitu sih yang bisa ane pahami tentang orang ini. This is much easier in literature, which can employ the faculties of narration and omniscience.
At the end of the film, when he becomes Pullman again, the Patricia Arquette character tells him he'll never have her; he remembers the murder, and everything leading up to it. Note: the highway appears every time one of these realities starts. He's a friend of Dick Laurent, I think. I recommend Lost Highway highly. When he receives the tapes, he cannot recognize them, even though he is most likely the one that made them. They can barely comprehend it themselves and it appears that Pete is involved in the same nightmare plot as Fred Madison was.
He would merely be satisfied to know that he was with her now. The Mystery Man is a manifestation of Fred's id or some Faustian depiction of his consciousness. Mungkin kamu mau bantuin ane? All the clues are there in the film but to include all of them to make sense is very difficult. The video tapes and the ugly guy with the camera represent the ugly truth. After some fun times in cheap motel rooms Pete starts to question Alice's sincerity about really carrying about him, she comes off as calculating as she seemingly out of nowhere comes up with a murder plot that requires Pete's assistance with him getting to do the dirty job. I'm not sure it's explained to be honest. Cause everyone is aware of Fred's metamorphosis although no one seems to really care about.
What one finds, then, is that a dream is not actually pure imagination, but the interplay of absolute gratification and imposing rationality. Having deconstructed that one to my satisfaction, I have a clearer view of how Lynch does things; how he shows us the elements, the language he uses, and what he leaves out for us to discover. Fred and the Mystery Man and Renee all return. Eddy and eventually kills him with the help of the Mystery Man. But Fred's paranoia demands danger, and Peter begins an even less plausible and obviously perilous association with Fred's new incarnation of Renee: the pure-hearted damsel in distress that is Alice. Reality sets back in and he once again is sent on the lost highway to create another reality. I actually think, by going for such a fragmented and irregular plot structure, he creates an even more interesting story, as he always does.
It's what it means to you, and everybody is different. Now Fred is in death row, sentenced to the electric chair, and left to ponder what really brought about the death of his wife. In reality Fred has no such control, and he cares too much to merely be physical. He is found to have brutally murdered his wife, much to his disbelief, and is then sentenced to death. Lynch films are not merely dreamy zen meditations on Americana and film, but long, dark journeys into the dark side of the unconscious that envelop the viewer in something more ominous than satire or tales of pulp crime. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I do, it's one of the greatest.
Without going into detail there is a similar pattern of repetition and duality in Lost Highway far more so than most Lynch movies. Then, one night, in solitary confinement, he goes through a psycho-genetic fugue and transforms into a completely different person. That, and the fact that David Lynch remains one of the most distinctive and fascinating artists working in film today. Either way, none of these were on the same level of success that Twin Peaks had in its…er, peak, and Lynch finally decided to take another stab at feature filmmaking. I've been doing a bit of searching this morning, but was interested in other people's interpretations of the film. I like to remember things my own way. To the viewer this plays as a smooth dodging of the question, but she is like Fred in that she believes physical and emotional affection are one and the same.
It would explain the bizarre events and would explain the ending. Lost Highway, I found, was his most well-written work. He works as a jazz musician in a nightclub and suspects his beautiful wife Renee Patricia Arquette of cheating on him. See it with intelligent, open-minded friends who like to talk about film experiences. The film flirts with such ideas as reincarnation and psychogenic fugue.
