Dir. David Lynch (2001).
The most critically beloved movie of the past decade, David Lynch’s erotic thriller is continually surprising as it careens from one violent non sequitur to the next. Mulholland Dr. is never far from the brink of self-parody—not least in offering its own critique of Hollywood. Thrilling and ludicrous, this voluptuously malignant phantasmagoria is never better than when the narrative begins to fissure and much of what has previously happened, happens again, only differently.
