A fantasy-like mystery with touches of dark comedy and surrealism, "Mulholland Drive" comes down hard on archetype Hollywood figures (aspiring dreamers and the industry heads who prey on and destroy them). Unfortunately, this ambitious experiment gets upended by a head-scratching conclusion and typical David Lynch indulgences.

Quite perhaps the most complete and perfect blend of Lynch's twisted mind and mainstream elements of structure and storytelling. What a bewildering, disturbing and chilling puzzle to be unraveled! Few minds dare to show such a demented perspective on suburban life. If this movie was a woman, it would be my dominatrix. 97/100

"When you see the girl in the picture that was shown to you earlier today, you will say, "this is the girl". The rest of the cast can stay, that's up to you. But the choice for that lead girl is NOT up to you. Now... you will see me one more time, if you do good. You will see me... two more times, if you do bad. Good night."
Back in early 2015, I watched "Mulholland Drive" and my first reaction were mostly positive. I didn't know what to think of it, but I was so in awe with the film that I couldn't stop thinking about it. The reason for not reviewing it back then is because I just wasn't ready to talk about it. This massive delay cause me to forget about it, as at the time, I had a lot of things on my mind.
But after re-watching it, it's better on the second watch. I loved …

An aspiring, fresh-faced young actress new in Hollywood discovers a woman in her appartment who is suffering from amnesia and they attempt to discover who she is using only a few slender clues. David Lynch once again delights and exasperates with this beautiful and always intriguing modern noir. It does not surprise me to discover that this was originally intended to be a TV show, as it reminded me a lot of Lynch's classic series Twin Peaks. It is not as baffling as much of Lynch's work, and although there are shades of Lost Highway in that suddenly the characters seem to become someone else, it does have a coherent narrative that explains all (if you were paying VERY close attention!) Lynch uses his trademark intensity of imagery and sound to create an otherwordly feeling, but it is not …

It starts with a car accident on Mulholland Drive involving a dark haired girl who tries to stay in an Apartment. Betty Elms (Naomi Watts) discovers her and tries to think she is Rita. A director named Adam Kesher (Justin Theroux) was influenced by the mob to get a girl they referred on his film. Rita and Betty becomes close. The Cowboy (Lafayette Montgomery) wakes up Diane Selwyn (played by Naomi Watts). Camilla Rhodes (Laura Elena Harring) invites Diane to a party where Adam and a girl kiss her. Diane does unthinkable acts because of her envy. A few noteworthy lines: Dan – “ I had a dream about this place.” Cowboy – “A man's attitude … a man's attitude goes some ways, the way his life will be.” Diane – “More than anything in this world.”
A film …
