Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive ★★★★½

Logging this only because I watched the rejected pilot of the would be Mulholland Drive television series tonight, an "episode" that Lynch released in 1999 (two years prior to the release of the film that we all know and love).

It's just about ninety minutes though, so rather than a pilot, it can really be thought of as a made-for-TV work of cinema -- not that pilots can't be ninety minutes long -- and quite a wonderful one at that.

I would go as far as applying to this the same rating that I gave Mulholland Drive (2001) as I must admit that I adore it even more than the pilot of "Twin Peaks," and a few of his other feature films (though I have the vast majority of his filmography rated quite highly, as he's one of the five or six great American masters, and the 1999 MD pilot is, explicitly, plain further proof).
