David Lynch’s “Lost Highway” is nothing shy of strange. Though I initially had a hard time following it during the first 30 minutes of the movie, the major plot and chunk of the action seemed pretty stable for the most part. I liked how Lynch used a cycle to connect the beginning and end of the story. The main character (Fred/Pete) suffers from psychological distress, and Lynch tends to play on Freud’s two major personality factors of sex and aggression. Thanks to the psychology class last semester, one can see part of the main components of personality (id, ego, and superego) circulate in the main characters life. The id, or primitive process, is driven by Pete’s pleasure-seeking tendencies. It’s ironic that in the beginning Fred accuses Renee of sleeping with another man, and in his “second life,” he is in fact the “other man” that Alice is cheating on Mr. Eddy with. He very much lacks the “ego” principle, because he cannot seem to define a clear line in his conscious reality and why strange incidents are occurring in his life. It seems as if he is living in a fantastical, psychological dream. I agree with what was stated below in Cara’s blog, when you can see Lynch trying to exemplify people’s daily struggle to express our true desires. Fred/Pete’s character almost seems to suffer from a metamorphic personality disorder. He struggles to understand the reality of his life. I did not like how Lynch left open a lot of “loose ends” in the movie. When Pete asks his parents what happened to him that one particular night, the scene just fades into another without any real explanation. But then again, maybe Lynch intended the movie to be open ended in some parts.
