Mulholland Dr. Movie Synopsis

In this sexy thriller, a number of interwoven stories center around a woman (Harring), who's just survived a car accident on Mulholland Drive but has suffered amnesia. The woman is then taken in by an aspiring actress from Deep River, Ontario (Watts) who tries to help her remember who she really is.

There are certain David Lynch recurring obsessions which pop up in most of his films. They can be found in Mulholland Drive as well: a mysterious entity which controls everything that happens, a person or persons who come into your life and take over, red velvet curtains, hotel rooms/apartments, a phone ringing in an empty room, and, most importantly perhaps, good coffee.

Notes: David Lynch's long-time music composer, Angelo Badalamenti, makes a surprise cameo appearance as one of the Castigliane brothers. The film is dedicated to the memory of Jennifer Syme, a girlfriend of Keanu Reeves' and a one-time personal assistant to David Lynch.

Dude just threw a bunch of loose ideas together and decided it was a movie, far as I can tell. I`ve read some explanations for it, but you just can`t make that complicated a concept into a movie properly, man. Then again, this is the only movie of his I`ve seen, so maybe having no idea what`s going on is an aquired taste.

There are movies that are deep and poetic, but this is too much. It was too weird to be interesting. It just became dumb even though it’s not.

honestly david lynch manages to give me everything i want in a movie. i thought the film was totally amasing and visually does he do it time and again.
