CW: We discuss themes of objectification, exploitation, and abuse of women throughout our Lost Highway discussion, as it is a central aspect of the film. We realize that many people may want a break from thinking about these topics due to current events, so we encourage folks to listen at their own discretion.
Joel Bocko joins us to discuss Lost Highway. We talk about how the film uses its two protagonists to explore themes of exploitation by the hands of abusive men. We also discuss David Lynch’s use of VHS horror, as well as question his depictions of absurd house parties. Finally, we examine the film in the context of Lynch’s entire filmography.
Our podcast theme is "April Elsewhere" by The Orchestral Movement of 1932 found via Opsound.org.
