Keeping to the Script
I now want to refer to the attempts of
categorization of the movie undertaken by its script writers. The
movie has been dubbed by Lynch and Gifford (e.g., in the published
version of the screenplay) as "A 21st Century Noir Horror Film.
A graphic investigation into parallel identity crises. A world where
time is dangerously out of control. A terrifying ride down the lost
highway." Whereas the "time dangerously out of
control" has already been hinted at in the section on the
Moebius Strip, I want to use the remaining markers in the following
as a kind of guideline.
