WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

A fascinating look at the image of the nostalgic Hollywood versus the harsh realities that actors can face as they follow their dreams. It's a very thought-provoking piece with spectacular acting and a really great script. A must-watch.

Kelsey Thomas Profile picture for Kelsey Thomas

MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a hyper-surreal neo-noir mystery with a nonlinear storyline and split characters — every element encourages confusion in the viewer. It’s the kind of film that demands you rewatch it (unless you’re renting it at $3.99 for 24 hours). I appreciate how Lynch left the ending ambiguous, refusing to explain “what it means,” hence opening the door for all the critical theories that currently circulate about and around the film.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

New Times (L.A.) by Gregory Weinkauf

While this road may contain too many potholes -- and plotholes -- to sustain an even ride, there are moments of greatness scattered throughout to remind us why Lynch is vital and why the French think he's so nifty.

New York Post by Lou Lumenick

No classic like "The Big Sleep," another famously impossible-to-follow Los Angeles thriller. But for those willing to hang on for dear life, Lynch makes it worth their while.

Salon by Stephanie Zacharek

Lynch's Hollywood is a grand old girl, but she's one with some very treacherous curves. To trace the contours of her sensuality, you need a camera as sensitive as a set of fingertips. Lynch's is.
