Lynch needs to renew himself with an influx of the deep feeling he has for people, for outcasts, and lay off the cretins and hobgoblins and zombies for a while.

One of the very few movies in which the pieces not only add up to much more than the whole, but also supersede it with a series of (for the most part) fascinating fragments.

Like Twin Peaks, it keeps spooling out more narrative twists until the ingenious maze turns into an oppressive tangle.

Lynch challenges our expectations of narrative and credibility by luxuriating in something else -- the unexplained, the making of no-sense that (he says) underlies life.

Mulholland Drive is the product of an expansive vision. Lynch isn't projecting private nightmares this time. Los Angeles is the city of all our dreams.

Maintains a consistent, relatively humanistic Lynchian vibe from beginning to end, and it sports a few entertainingly loopy scenes.

A gorgeously rounded picture, one that starts out with a glamorous come-hither wink and has the good grace to follow through, although perhaps not in the way we expect.
