I saw Mulholland Drive last night. What the fuck was that all about?
Don’t get me wrong. That’s not a criticism. Far from it. I thought it was a great film. I loved the fact that two thirds of the way through, everything changed and suddenly you were desperately trying to make sense of what had happened.
Salon have an in-depth article that attempts to deconstruct the film, but, to be honest, I think they are over-analysing. I far prefer to just see it as weirdness.
It’s the best thing David Lynch has done since Twin Peaks. I really wish something had come of the original plan to make it a TV series.
I also watched The Royal Tenenbaums – which was also fabulous.
