“Come on, it’ll be just like in the movies. We’ll pretend to be someone else.” – ‘Betty’

If you haven’t yet seen MULHOLLAND DR., the following piece has ‘spoilers’.

What is the most horrible thing in the world? For an answer, we can concoct all kinds of theories, explanations, speculations, imaginations, and fantasies. But in the end, nothing is more horrible than the pure and simple truth. Perhaps no film conveyed this sense more powerfully than David Lynch’s MULHOLLAND DR. Roughly, the first four-fifths of the film are immersed in a kind of dream-fantasy-haze, and the final one fifth dwells on the reality of what-really-happened. We realize that the fever-dream was spawned within the mind of a failed actress named Diane Selwyn.

    I love this film. Naomi Watts blew me away with her transition from one person to another. She dug deep there and you could really tell.
