Mulholland Drive
USA (2001),145 min.Dir:David Lynch. Lynch’s atmospheric film noir intertwines the stories of Betty (Naomi Watts), a perky Hollywood hopeful, and Rita (Laura Harring), amnesiac from a car accident along Mulholland Drive, with strange and macabre doings in the world behind the scenes of showbiz. Originally a pilot for a TV series,the film weaves together disparate plot lines and characters in a way that may or may not ultimately make any rational sense...you decide.
