Mulholland Drive

Buy Tickets

(2001) dir David Lynch w/Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Justin Theroux [147 min; 35mm]
Few filmmakers use the inherent elements of cinema as effectively as David Lynch. His masterful manipulation of narrative structure, perceived timeline, visual comprehension and character motivation are in full effect in MULHOLLAND DRIVE. In it, a young woman (Watts) goes to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming a star but, instead, finds only disappointment and disillusionment.

“At times Lynch communicates with us not through the language of cinema but in haunted valentines that are almost a direct address, from him to us, without the intermediary of fiction.” Brandon Irvine explores the twists and turns of Mulholland Drive in his Brattle Film Notes essay
