Mulholland Drive


(out of 5)

Atmosphere is just the first delicious part of the experience in this David Lynch film, his best since Blue Velvet. Two women are united after a car accident on the titular road in Los Angeles, one of whom is now amnesiac and doesn’t know her identity, the other an aspiring actress anxious to help her.  At some point, however, the two women are now alternate characters and Lynch draws his audiences further into a dreamlike vortex of confusion.  It’s what he does best, and fans of his will have no end of fun having their chains pulled one more time.   and  are both excellent in the lead roles, and veteran MGM musical star  is wonderful in a supporting role as a kindly landlady who befriends the actress.
