Mulholland Dr is reissued some 15 years after it was released. It was rapidly hailed as the first great US film of the century. None since has been any more powerful.

Luxuriously strange.

It is an explosively sexy love story, rocket-fuelled with vanity and cruelty.

With a sensational performance by Watts, it's a triple-strength masterpiece that will more than satisfy the die-hard Lynch mob and may even gain a receptive new audience for the Sultan of Strange.

This is David Lynch at his most imaginative and challenging.

Mulholland Drive is pure cinema - a gorgeous, noir-narcotic loop of heartbreak in the "dream place" of Los Angeles.

Alluring and unnerving, Lynch's horror-show reminds us how much cinema misses him. Watts is electric, too.

Peppered with moments of pure, neck-prickling sensation, but the emotional centre remains elusive.

Because Lynch is playing with archetypes like the wide-eyed innocent, he's able to subvert them with a heightened reality that suckers us in.

As an exercise in bravura moviemaking, as well as a commentary on the very nature of cinema itself, this works quite well, but on an emotional level, it's one of Lynch's most distant pieces.

What's unique about 'Mulholland Dr.' is the way it plays with the boundaries of TV and film, finding the interplay between the mediums.

Begin by imagining that a single story is being told in multiple ways throughout the film: a story of naive hopes, heartbreak, jealousy...Erotic, fear-ridden, and beautiful, Lynch's primal imagery has the abhorrent and alluring pull of death itself. [BD]

The best autocritique of cinema as a medium that has yet been made.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

We go to Mulholland Dr. not merely for explanations, but for the euphoric sense that there is something beyond our understanding affecting us as we view it.

Leads us into our own strange need to untangle the spools of film and dream, fiction and truth, protective fantasy and traumatic reality. Lynch uses the twinkling lights and dazzling stars of superficial LA to warp us into a deeper, stranger surreality.

Fascinating movie for adults only.

Billy Ray Cyrus as an amorous poolman punched by a mobster? David Lynch's commentary on independent filmmaking? Lesbian erotica as sad as it is exaggeratedly hot? Lynch's greatest puzzle box snaps together in sparse, bold, sexy and thrilling fashion.

When directors get you to ponder this much and leave a lasting impression after you've seen a movie of theirs, they have to be doing something right.
August 25, 2008
As moviemaking -- as pure abstract art writ large -- this is a classic, a thing of dark mystifying beauty.

It's a stunning starring debut, one that should decisively put Watts on the Hollywood and international map.
