    The Kino Lorber rep had this to say on another website

    "We acquired the rights last year. We did reach out to the filmmaker. And that's all we can say about it.

    The transfer is a very good one, we watched it and it looks great. We're trying to clear three extras and hope to list the additional details next week."

    This label is not known for putting out the highest quality of transfers for their releases, as they will put out just what the studio gives them which is often not a good sign. They had to delay the release of Rian Johnson's Brick once Johnson got a hold of them because he wasn't initially informed of it's release.

    It can look better though. The transfer was done in 2004. The technology has gotten better.

    No extras for the Lost Highway Blu-ray. Hopefully this means Criterion can put out their own edition sometime down the line.

    A lot of people are angry at Lynch because of no extras. Commentaries, we know he hates them. But interviews and trailers? Bullshit. I don't think Kino is telling the truth.

    It's either Kino or Universal people should be angry at.

    Where is everyone reading that there's not going to be any extras on the new Blu-ray?

    Lost Highway is surely a cursed movie.

    It's so elusive for blu-ray. It makes me so annoyed. Hopefully it gets a proper widespread release it deserves. I refuse to buy the DVD.

I am wondering if this new blu ray will be better than those two, and if so, I still might pick it up. I just want a decent version of the darned thing to hold me over until Lynch remasters it for Criterion.

    Thoughts?

    I torrented a 1080p version, ripped from the European Blu-ray I think, which looked fine and included bonus features as well as the original surround mix. Just get that.

    I ended up purchasing it largely due to the review on bluray.com. The standard DVD edition I have is very fuzzy and the German Blu Ray I have has a lot of the color washed out compared to other releases.

    I havent watched this release yet even though I purchased it yesterday but I am hoping to take the time to give it a watch this weekend and hopefully will be able to note the differences.

    Okay: just finished watching it. Can confirm that the picture looks very good. Much less grainy than my German blu ray, which has grain present even in the black.

    This version has good coloring and deep blacks. Hardly any grain in the black and in most of the movie, save for one aerial shot.

    Sound is good! Music is good but the dialogue has always been SO low at some points although Im sure Lynch wanted it this way.

    All in all Id say this is the best version out there until we have a proper criterion. Im not upset I bought this.

    I was lucky enough to see Twin Peaks 3 - Ep 8 on the big screen yesterday, as part of the David Lynch 'My Head Is Disconnected' exhibition. I expected it to be amazing, and I was more than right. Proper goosebumps seeing it on such a massive screen with stupendously loud sound. Fantastic exhibition of artworks too.

    I finally watched the first half of Inland Empire. Even kinda followed it along, mostly, without losing the plot too many times! My brain needed a rest after the dance sequence though.

    Ok but all these years over the release of his movie in a way he doesn't like but like... Then fucking release it, Blu Ray is at the end of its life span, so at this point you gotta take what you can get. We can't all have movie theater projectors in our house

    I beg your pardon, but... huh? What?

    It's an intense watch (in a dark room with the sound up, particularly). I recommend breaking Inland Empire up into shorter viewings, though, there's too much information to process for a single sitting. Stretching it out over two or three very late nights, maybe with some chemical assistance: perfect. Truly, it's the most extreme example ever of his dream-logic storytelling. I couldn't stomach it all in one go, but there are bravura moments throughout, so very much worth watching all of it to enjoy. Even the washed-out, primitive-looking digital video cinematography adds to the uneasiness.

    If you do watch it, pay special attention to sources of light. David Lynch himself even has a voice-only cameo as the Bucky J, the hapless lighting technician on the film soundstage.

    Yeah I'm just suggesting that it's easy for David Lynch to pick a bone with the quality of the Lost Highway Blu Ray... He's got probably a decent film reel of the movie. In making this comment, I also had in mind Tarantino's ire towards digital. In the mean time as technology is moving forward, a DVD is going to look worse and worse. We have to take what we can can get as far as a Blu Ray is concerned. I think there was a typo in my post that made it seem confusing.

    I'm sure there are legal reasons why he can't just release it his way. Also, Peter Deming, the cinematographer, reached out to Kino through email to offer his assistance. They ignored him. Fuck Kino.
