Daniel’s review published on Letterboxd:
The amount of times I've forced people to watch this is embarrassing.
David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive" is the most complexly beautiful movie I have seen by a long shot. It's one of Lynch's many masterworks.
From the beginning of the story, you can already tell something is off. Everything seems a little surreal and there are sinister moments that coincide with the normal scenes. For somebody who has never seen a Lynch movie or doesn't know his famous style, "Mullholland Drive" would most likely be a hugely frustrating movie.
I'm happy to have discovered Lynch and the dreamlike qualities attributed to his films, he is a genius and has some of the most creative and odd ideas I've seen in cinema. "Mullholland Drive" is a peculiar movie, but is clearly about Hollywood ideals vs. the brutal reality. It sticks in your head no matter how long ago you saw it, that's the massive power of this thing.
This may very well be one of the greatest/most important films made. Bravo, Lynch. You're not a human, but a God.
