An aspiring Canadian actress meets an amnesiac femme fatale. A box is opened and the women become different characters in David Lynch’s seductive and scary vision of Los Angeles’s dream factory.

Our take

Initially conceived as a TV pilot, only to be transformed into a feature film, Mulholland Dr. is lightning in a bottle of Hollywood fantasies, baroque emotions and noir dreamscapes. An uncontested masterpiece of surrealism.
