That's a radical statement. I'm not a fan of "Mulholland Dr.", but would never dare to compare it to any of Tarantino's films. Obviously there are references to Bergman's "Persona" as well as Buñuel, but I don't see how he just copied an existing work. Care to elaborate why you don't regard it as a real film?
I was one of many who thought, when it came out, that Mulholland Drive might be Lynch's most direct engagement w/ traditional surrealism because it appeared to be his most direct immersion in the world of dream. I see it very differently now. The movie strikes me now as being engaged w/ the insidious business of reality in all its elasticity and machinic complexity. Reality as conspiratorial domain. Transitional.
For a Hollywood's production this is a very audacious oeuvre! A fascinating work on perception, memory and film-making's struggle. But, the second time i saw it, i feel that the film is too flat and not so out of Hollywood criteria! Hipsters like weirdo stuffs; but weirdo doesnt mean groundbreaking. Sorry.
Totally sexy and surreal, Lynch's take on american stardom willness is a poetic trip on dreamland. Catchy from scene one, it emulates Hollywood noir as storytelling. Building suspense as a film master, Lynch delivers cinema treasure chest in here.
Mulholland Drive is a dense film that lingers in the mind for days. The nods to classic cinema and film theory are obvious throughout the movie, especially the connection often made between film and dreams. As the opening sequence suggests, this is "A love story in the city of dreams." It only feels right watching this movie at night, maybe for the same reason. One of the best films of the 2000s.
Mulholland Drive,film absurd dari sutradara absurd,dengan cerita absurd,karakter absurd,ending yang absurd,dan ditonton oleh penonton absurd..kenapa semua jadi absurd,karena saya sendiri absurd....David Lynch memang absurd,makanya saya suka sutradara absurd seperti dia,dijamin,habis nonton ini film...anda akan semakin absurd. absurd.
The biggest mistake of those who watch Mulholland Drive is the urge to understand it completely - something that, i believe, neither the actors themselves and, perhaps, Lynch did. I believe Lynch's films are to be felt and not understood. Mulholland Drive is a sensory, genuine and exciting film and that's the reason why I'll never, never, get tired of watching it (and feeling it). By far, my all-time favorite movie.
Watch as the 20th century foxes personal identity into a box -- the "dark room" of the camera, into which we fall and from which we emerge as projections that flare, flicker, and fade. However irreducible to a single reading, MD's most enduring appeal lies in its uncanny evocation of the instability of selves and the primacy of roles -- in the realization that our voice is not our own and the show goes on without us.
