Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive ★★★★½

Initial confusion has turned to ‘yooooo’ after reading a few Youtube comments. 

I didn’t know exactly what I was watching, but I knew it was something quite special, and man was I enjoying it in a strange type of way. The score (which gave me heavy Eyes Wide Shut vibes), the seemingly random interactions between characters, the theatrically quick editing … they were all working together to create a truly unique viewing experience. From when we zoom into the blue box, my expression was one of confusion until the credits: I knew I’d been watching a half dream, half reality type narrative but I wasn’t sure how it all connected. There appears to be endless interpretations, but I’m not sure it’s as complicated as it all first appears. I’ll definitely revisit this at some point in the future and it could come for the 5 stars. Anyway, whatever I watched, I surprisingly really, really enjoyed it! Everyone, myself included tbh, had me down to hate this, so I’m glad to prove the haters wrong. More David Lunchbox content on the way for me, I think. Great start to 2022: let’s keep it going!
