Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive ★★★★★

this one is the ultimate surrealist tragedy. the dreamlike atmosphere and the meta narrative devices make it downright neoclassical and also very dark. waves of fear creep up in mysterious ways throughout the runtime. each scene brings a true emotion, however uncomfortable it may be. might be my favorite lynch film unless you count TP:TR on account of just how surprising it is on first watch, but it has lots of longevity on rewatches because of the rich details. just such an absurd and brilliant story, with some fantastic performances to boot.
