Similar to Mulholland Drive, the dream starts out well but ends with the dreamer having to face reality: Fred is now Pete, and he gets exactly what he didn't get as Fred; lots of sex, adventure, etc. But his real self catches up with him (scene: sax music playing on the radio in the garage) (scene: Mystery Man telling him Alice is Renee)

(Note: I won't edit my first post, I'll just continue my thoughts in this post as to not confuse newcomers who read the other posts.) As to the Mystery Man and the ending, those are two things I still don't accept a concrete interpretation. Is he Fred's manifestation (then how does Andy see him at the party, saying he's a friend of Dick Laurent)? Is he a demon? Is the ending a transformation into another character (hence the title Lost Highway?) Is he being electrocuted in the electric chair?
Personally, I also don't believe every little thing in this movie requires extra thought compared to Mulholland Drive. I think it instead all just mainly focuses around the main idea of a man who imagines a second life. That's another reason why I prefer to sum up the film in my first post. It is indeed an experience, though, and should not be missed.
