Today’s Pick: Lost Highway

June 30th, 2008 by Gabe Sena Video Editor

We’re starting the third week of the Hulu Days of Summer with something more surreal. At first glance, David Lynch’s Lost Highway might not seem like the perfect summer movie, but let me explain: Sometimes fun in the sun doesn’t fit your frame of mind. And when that mood strikes, I recommend closing the drapes, putting on Lost Highway and getting lost in the dark and lonely Los Angeles of David Lynch’s imagination.

Lynch’s films defy the rules of Hollywood. They’re perverse, erotic and often incomprehensible, but that’s the appeal. And in this case, casting actor Robert Blake to play the inherently creepy “Mystery Man” alongside Bill Pullman and Patricia Arquette (Medium) was a stroke of genius.

“We’ve met before, haven’t we?” (Gabe)

  • I like Malholand drive, something it has…

  • I mostly like “EraserHead”.

    Here’s another one for you, not necessarily for the Days of Summer — let’s go a little old school with the movie Diner! We were talking about that at work yesterday and I forgot how great a movie that was.

    Thanks for everything! Happy 4th!

    I have a request for the Days of Summer. I know this probably won’t actually accomplish anything, and you may already have every release planned out ahead of time, but what the hell, it’s worth a shot.

    The Complete Series of Futurama! It’d be great, especially for getting the word out about the Futurama straight-to-DVD movies that are coming out…
