Added DiffLines:

* ThroughTheEyesOfMadness: Up to debate, but the scene with [[spoiler: sudden appearance of already deceased Camilla at Diane's place]] as well as one directly leading to [[spoiler: Diane's suicide]] certainly qualify. RuleOfSymbolism also applies though.

* FilmNoir: The film could be called an homage to the genre. For example the character of Betty Elms is clearly inspired by many of Hitchcock's noir heroines. She even wears a dress suit that looks exactly like the one worn by Kim Novak in ''Film/{{Vertigo}}''.

* TheArtifact: This film began life as an ABC pilot, and was reworked by Lynch as a feature film after ABC rejected it. There are bit in the movie that never go anywhere, presumably because they would have been developed in the proposed series. Robert Forster appears in one scene as a detective investigating the car crash, and is never seen again.
