Žižek, S. (2000) The Art of the Ridiculous Sublime: On David Lynch's Lost Highway, Seattle: Walter Chapin Simpson Center for the Humanities. Using some of the material from The Fragile Absolute, while building on previous analyses in The Metastases of Enjoyment and elsewhere, this small book/essay is an examination of David Lynch's film Lost Highway. Amid the many satisfying incidental discussions, Žižek's central contention is that Lost Highway effectively functions as a form of meta- commentary on the opposition between the classic and postmodern noir femme fatale.
