The only thing I knew about David Lynch is that he directs movies that are really out there. And Mulholland Drive is no exception.
After a brutal car accident in Los Angeles, Rita (Laura Herring) is the sole survivor but suffers mass amnesia. Wandering into a stranger's apartment downtown, her story strangely intertwines with Betty Elms (Naomi Watts), a perky young woman in search of stardom. However, Betty is intrigued by Rita's situation and is willing to put aside her dreams to pursue this mystery. The two women soon discover that nothing is as it seems in the city of dreams.
Holy crap, that was one weird movie. If it's your first time watching it, don't be upset if you don't understand (I sure as hell didn't). It's definitely one of those movies you need to watch a few times to actually get it. Apart from Mulholland Drive being the weirdest thing I've ever watched, it's also a really good film noir. Oh, and also the biggest case of mindfuck EVER. Don't say I didn't warn you.
My Rating: ****1/2
