Lynch is playing a big practical joke on us. He takes characters we have come to care about and obscures their fates in gibberish.

While I occasionally felt a delicious thrill as I swirled through his surreal world, more often I found myself wielding a more impatiently pedestrian 'Huh?'

Your friend isn't going to be interested in hearing about your dream, and I can't imagine anyone honestly being interested in watching David Lynch's dream-on-film, either.

The advance audience laughed diversely and talked throughout the screening. The exit comments were mean.

It's a big mess! But not in a controlled sense like Lynch's other films.

This is a David Lynch movie. This is a David Lynch movie on drugs. Any questions?

It's no "Who killed Laura Palmer?", but it's something to chew on.

This film is like watching Memento through the eyes of Hunter Thompson dipping into a stash of Lynch's that would kill a normal human being

Mulholland Drive is...either for people much smarter than me who can figure it all out, or for people easily amused by striking imagery and oddball characters.

An extended mood opera, if you want to put an arty label on incoherence.

Lacking a single moment its director hasn't already done before and better, it feels like the flabby greatest hits medley from an over-the-hill pop star's oldies circuit tour.

The film is performance art, it's masturbation - apparently very fulfilling for the doer but pretty dang tiresome for the watcher.

A baffling but always intriguing failure, the movie gets more confusing, not less, as the story unfolds.

The last third of Mulholland Drive looks like a cobbled-together mess of a film, rather than the masterpiece Lynch lovers claim it is.

Lynch seems as clueless as his characters when it comes to making sense of this anything-goes storyline.

This is an infuriating film.

A murky webbing of stale riffs, gags, vapors of art.

It's just too annoyingly incomprehensible to recommend.
