David Lynch cobbles episodes from his cancelled TV show with newly filmed footage, and stirring up a ground-breaking masterpiece with colorful, dizzying, and mysterious editing. Mulholland Drive is one of the rare occasions where you are frozen in awe after watching a film that is beyond definition and unlike any other film ever made. Naomi Watts and Laura Harring maintain the film's mystery giving real performances that benefit from Lynch's complex writing of characters. Mulholland Drive is the first film that feels like a dream, and equally, makes you as frustrated when it ends as when an excellent dream does.
Now You See Me's likability depends on the audience's willingness to be tricked and to believe in the absurdity. Unfortunately, I do not think anyone could not believe what happened in this film enough to follow and to enjoy it. Louis Leterrier directs a sort-of passive-aggressive revenge flick against corporate greed which works for the most part due to the exceptional cast. If you picked anyone on the street and asked them to cast this film, I think you would get the same result. Leterrier bursts with energy, but does not have the talent to craft a good film.
Like many great artists like Moliere, Steve Carrey and Jim Carrey choose yet another similar film project that is identical to nearly everything in their filmography except for the general premise. Unlike Moliere, this film's message is sloppy, but its references to magic on stage and TV make it worthwhile. The long list of writers have done their research on magic and anyone who is a fan of the hobby will love, laugh at, and understand this film. Bottom line, every magician is annoyed by Criss Angel who inspires Carrey's character Steve Gray 'Brain Rapist.'
