REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 1-Feb-2007)

Many find David Lynch's surrealistic non-linear storytelling annoying. His films are intellectually stupefying and emotionally jarring. Like the late Robert Altman, Lynch has no misgivings about plying his craft in television. Mulholland Drive began as a tv pilot that burned too hot for network executives and wound up as a feature film that earned him a tie for best director at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. If you liked Naomi Watts in King Kong and have noticed Laura Harring on FX's The Shield, you will love them in Mulholland Drive. This film oozes with their raw beauty and sexuality. It is a tantalizing mystery that requires many viewings. Angelo Badalamenti's soundtrack is superb and a vocal performance by little known Rebekah Del Rio is absolutely riveting. David Lynch is the only director in the business who can make a film like this. If you found Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me or Lost Highway too bizarre, give Lynch another chance with this one.
