In the unreal universe of Los Angeles, the city bares its schizophrenic nature, an uneasy blend of innocence and corruption, love and loneliness, beauty and depravity. A woman is left with amnesia following a car accident. An aspiring young actress finds her staying in her aunt's home. The puzzle begins to unfold, propelling us through a mysterious labyrith of sensual experiences until we arrive at the intersection of dreams and nightmares.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lynch needs to renew himself with an influx of the deep feeling he has for people, for outcasts, and lay off the cretins and hobgoblins and zombies for a while."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A movie to savour."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"We go to Mulholland Dr. not merely for explanations, but for the euphoric sense that there is something beyond our understanding affecting us as we view it."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"Fascinating movie for adults only."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"As moviemaking -- as pure abstract art writ large -- this is a classic, a thing of dark mystifying beauty."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"One of the very few movies in which the pieces not only add up to much more than the whole, but also supersede it with a series of (for the most part) fascinating fragments."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Lynch challenges our expectations of narrative and credibility by luxuriating in something else -- the unexplained, the making of no-sense that (he says) underlies life."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"It's a big mess! But not in a controlled sense like Lynch's other films."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
"Billy Ray Cyrus as an amorous poolman punched by a mobster? David Lynch's commentary on independent filmmaking? Lesbian erotica as sad as it is exaggeratedly hot? Lynch's greatest puzzle box snaps together in sparse, bold, sexy and thrilling fashion."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"A summation work at midpoint career, this visually menacing horror picture, which deconstructs Hollywood as the dream factory, continues to explore such Lynchian obsessions as good vs. evil and dreams vs. nightmares."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Like Twin Peaks, it keeps spooling out more narrative twists until the ingenious maze turns into an oppressive tangle."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Mulholland Drive makes movies feel alive again."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Leads us into our own strange need to untangle the spools of film and dream, fiction and truth, protective fantasy and traumatic reality. Lynch uses the twinkling lights and dazzling stars of superficial LA to warp us into a deeper, stranger surreality."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"When directors get you to ponder this much and leave a lasting impression after you've seen a movie of theirs, they have to be doing something right."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"As art, Drive is extraordinary. As a film for general audiences, it's bound to be misunderstood, condemned as pornographic, or exploited for cheap thrills."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
