(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.

“By surrendering any semblance of rationality to create a post-Freudian, pulp-fiction fever dream of a movie, Mr. Lynch ends up shooting the moon with Mulholland Drive.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“Not just everything you want in a David Lynch movie, but damn near everything else you want in ANY movie.” – Manohla Dargis, L.A. Weekly

“Lynch’s Hollywood is a grand old girl, but she’s one with some very treacherous curves. To trace the contours of her sensuality, you need a camera as sensitive as a set of fingertips. Lynch’s is.” – Stephanie Zacharek,

“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
