    ok i've watch it, and i'm going out of my mind - what was it all about - i thought i was doing quite well until the Blue Box opened - then my brain did a back flip and decided to retire from duty.

    Question - does anyone know a web site were i can find a out what it was all about, i've done a search but it didn't come up with anything.

    cheers folks

    Thing is, I saw Mullholland Drive before Lost Highway, and as a result, found 'Lost Highway' fairly straightforward.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, but compared to Mullholland Drive, Lost Highway is as straighforward a narrative as any mainstream film and I found it very easy to understand*. Mullholland Drive is a complete contradiction of itself, if you see what I mean, and I don't think he wanted anyone to understand it. Those much vaunted ten clues were rumoured to be red herrings, designed to confuse people.

    *this bit may not be true.

    KRRK,

    I didn't find Mulholland Drive contradicting itself once you're in the right mindset for what's going on. The link that was provided above is quite useful for revealing parts of the plot and is an interesting read :)

    Spoilers re Lost Highway (highlight to read)


    Lost Highway is straightforward once you realise that it's not a conventional narrative but symbolic, with each character representing an aspect of your man's personality (forget his name in the movie).


    This is the best resource I found on Lost Highway :)
