Mulholland Dr.

David Lynch Stati Uniti, 2001

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Mulholland Drive

No hooray for Hollywood here. An assured play on notions and symbols of vice versa: dreams/waking state, idealisation/reality, morality/machinations, etc. The fractured source (the retooling of an abandoned TV pilot) makes it even more remarkable how deftly Lynch has crafted this cunning onion-skinned puzzle. It's somewhat indulgent, but then what film isn't? At least this has an honesty in its lack of verisimilitude
