Mulholland Drive

David Lynch pulls out all the stops, upends all expectations, and, well, goes all Lynchian in this maniacal, mind-bending mix of Hollywood satire, film noir, and fever dream  anointed earlier this year, in a BBC poll, as the greatest film of the 21st century to date! Naomi Watts is perky Betty, an aspiring actress from Canada newly arrived in Los Angeles. Laura Harring is Rita, a mysterious dark-haired beauty searching for her identify after a near-fatal accident leaves her with amnesia. Justin Theroux is Adam, a hotshot Hollywood director under pressure from thugs to cast an unknown actress named Camilla in his latest movie. Lynchs love story in the city of dreams was originally filmed as a TV pilot for ABC, which passed on picking it up as a series. A film to love, not just revere ... Lynch is our homespun Buñuel - L.A.
