Jonathan discusses a specific scene from David Lynch’s Lost Highway (1997), which he says is one of the most perfect scenes ever created in film.

From this inventory of imagery, Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) 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 the same actress (Patricia Arquette).
Opening song is “We Got the Poison” by Electric Candles
