Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive ★★★★★

ILLUSORY DOES NOT MEAN NOT REAL:
Even when I am explicitly told that there is no band, I still hear and deeply deeply deeply feel the music. Even when I know that Camilla is not really Camilla but an actor in a movie playing an actor in another movie who is lip-syncing those lyrics written by someone else and sung by someone else, I feel that they are coming from within her--and my gosh I am so moved by them. Even when I awake from a dream, I feel the residual feelings it leaves me with. This movie is cathartic for me in that it allows me to throw out that ever-pesky, nagging notion of "logic" and indulge in the beauty and terror and mystique of undiluted feeling! Cosmic.
