Dubbed by Lynch «a 21st century noir horror film», Lost Highway draws its plot, or rather, its plots, from classic film noirs filled with desperate men and faithless women. From this inventory of imagery, Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician, tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other concerns a young mechanic, drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by Patricia Arquette and may, in fact, be the same woman. The men in each are connected by a mysterious, mind-blowing turn of events that calls into question their very identities.
