Mulholland Dr. back to product details

Amazing commentary on how messed up we are

I second the above review. In addition, a quick thought, having seen it twice: it really gives pause to the idea that mainstream attitudes about sex, relationships and art are narrow. That the idea that we can be 'seduced' into accepting a healthy lesbian relationship that mirrors a heterosexual one is disturbing to us when a film maker doesn't do it right. Also the midgets, its related. Trust me. Anyway, when you sit down to think about the two women's relationships, and the circle of influence around them, you realize that what we accepted as normal could be translated as 'normal' for gays, midgets, philanderers and people from LA as well. Even cowboys, I suspect!
While I don't think Lynch is a great director, he is a fantastic story teller--better with age, as well. Two thumbs up and a severed ear.

Scariest Cowboy Ever!

Mulholland Drive is everything you want from a David Lynch film, dark, frighten filled with symbols and precision that is exclusive to David Lynch. At first the film seems rather straight forward, sweet blond girl(Laura Dern), dark mysterious woman(Isabella) with a dark secret has to find out her identity. There is a evil mafia that is involved with money and movie. It all is intertwined and the movie will be about solving the mystery.

However soon after being introduced to the bullied director, you realize everything is not as it seems and that David is enjoying a good poke at the industry that has not always treated him well. It isn't long until everything starts to swirl into chaos and darkness. Both reality and the plot seem to shift before your eyes. It becomes clear in the theater that the movie was always about five beats ahead of the audience and that we all were on this wonderfully dark and scary trip.

Naomi Watts(Betty) and Laura Elena Harring(Rita) both give stellar break through performances. Angelo Badalamenti's soundtrack is, as always, breathtaking. This is a premiere film that highlights the best of David Lynch.
