    ★★★

    Mullholland Drive for the lazy.


    It starts off as a story of rivalry between struggling actresses. The dialogue is so layered and the background score is so designed that you feel like you're watching a mind-bending thriller. The setting is dull, the scenes are ordinary but the treatment is innovative and bizarre.

    Would have been so much more satisfied had they not gone in the supernatural realm, and stuck to making a horror movie where the bad guy is the dialogue!

    What a fierce feministic film this is. Recommended for everyone who feels helpless, reels from sexual abuse. Watch this and live vicariously through Page's Haley.

    Also, in a film where you should hate the antagonist no questions asked, I fell in love with Patrick Wilson (all over again).
