Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive ★★★★

This review is dedicated to the single tear I felt roll down the left side of my face during the Club Silencio scene.

Possibly the most clever use of a noir set-up since Vertigo, using it as a familiar springboard leading into a black void where everything is under interrogation: desires, identities, realities, time, existence, the structure of film itself. You leave Mulholland Drive with your confidence in reality unmoored just a little bit, but enough.

"Silencio."
