Mulholland Drive
Although it's nearly two and a half hour length may seem daunting, you'll never be bored for a minute in this mostly suspenseful noir thriller. Something is always happening in this film which is set in Los Angeles in the late 40's or early 50's and is basically about the film industry. There are some colorful performances, especially from the two leading ladies; Naomi Watts, making an auspicious film debut (as a hopeful young actress) and Laura Elena Harring (who loses her memory in the first scene and spends the rest of the film attempting to learn who she is). Justin Theroux plays the young film director whose life is not going at all well. The casting of his new film is being dictated from above, his life is being threatened if he does not comply, and his wife is sleeping with the handyman (Billy Ray Cyrus). In the cast you'll also find Ann Miller as an apartment-complex landlady, Robert Forster as a detective, Lee Grant, Diane Baker, Chad Everett and Dan Hedaya. There are numerous colorful sequences throughout, some of them quite amusing, some of them quite interesting, others just plain confusing, as to their inclusion. If you know that this was originally to be a pilot for a television series, then some of the creepy characters and strange episodes that never pay off might be understandable. But why did Lynch leave them in this film? What you've got here is an intriguing but most weird film-going experience.
