* {{Expy}}: Mr. Eddy is remarkably similar to Frank Booth in ''BlueVelvet''. There's even a fairly similar "joy ride" scene. The character was written for actor Robert Loggia after he waited several hours to audition for Frank, only to be told that the role had already gone to Dennis Hopper. Loggia dropped a serious ClusterFBomb that impressed Lynch so much he gave Loggia his own version of Frank to play.

* LotusEaterMachine: Arguably the second half of the movie, [[spoiler: as wife killer Fred re-imagines himself as the more innocent, down to earth Pete while at the same type villainizing both Dick Laurent as a dangerous gangster and his wife as a lying tramp.]]

Made in 1997, ''Lost Highway'' remains not only a key Creator/DavidLynch work, but a surprisingly influential film, despite its rather outre qualities and mixed critical reception. The twisting, neo-noir plot revolving around identity is echoed by films such as ''Film/FightClub'', ''Film/DonnieDarko'', and ''Film/{{Memento}}''. Lynch would further develop the theme in ''Film/MulhollandDrive'', this film's SpiritualSuccessor.

* TheVerse: If WordOfGod is any indication, that may just be [[Music/DavidBowie Agent Jeffries]] singing "I'm Deranged" from [[TwinPeaks inside the Black Lodge]], and Phil the mechanic is probably Pete Martell's twin or something.

The best way to watch this film is with an open mind preferably in a well lit room with the phone unplugged.
