Mulholland Drive (2001)

Consensus: David Lynch's dreamlike and mysterious Mulholland Drive is a twisty neo-noir with an unconventional structure that features a mesmirizing performance from Naomi Watts as a woman on the dark fringes of Hollywood.

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.

Because Lynch is playing with archetypes like the wide-eyed innocent, he's able to subvert them with a heightened reality that suckers us in.

As an exercise in bravura moviemaking, as well as a commentary on the very nature of cinema itself, this works quite well, but on an emotional level, it's one of Lynch's most distant pieces.

Like Twin Peaks, it keeps spooling out more narrative twists until the ingenious maze turns into an oppressive tangle.

Mulholland Drive makes movies feel alive again.

What's unique about 'Mulholland Dr.' is the way it plays with the boundaries of TV and film, finding the interplay between the mediums.

One of the best films of 2001. A chilling dissection of hollywood, reminiscent of Sunset Bolevard and All About Eve.
