I'm pretty sure Mulholland Drive is a dream. A really weird one, at that. It's made out of bits and pieces that don't quite fit together when looking at them from up close. From afar, however, they seem to form a cohesive, but ultimately undecipherable narrative. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what was going on, and just when I thought I did, the narrative reset and the characters were assigned different roles. During its last half hour, I gave up trying to understand it, and by the time it ended, I felt like it was slowly escaping my grasp. But maybe that's the thing about Mulholland Drive. Just like a dream, maybe it shouldn't even be figured out. Maybe it should just be experienced and accepted as is. It's definitely an interesting experience, and its elusiveness doesn't take anything away from it.
