Retrospective | David Lynch
Reality, dream, or dream-within-a-dream? A savage satire of the entertainment industry or a film noir for the 21st century? The enduring appeal of ‘Mulholland Drive’ is probably due to the fact that, more than any other Lynch film, it refuses to be reconciled, or to be definitively explained away. Hollywood wannabe Betty Elms, finds a woman hiding in her apartment who has no idea who she is. Together, they set about trying to discover Rita’s identity, while a parallel story, in which director Adam Kesher struggles to retain creative control of a fifties genre movie he’s working on, also plays itself out. But ‘Mulholland Drive’ is no more ‘about’ any of these things than Eraserhead is ‘about’ a man named Henry having a baby. Featuring an extraordinary performance by Naomi Watts as Betty, and a haunting score by Lynch’s court composer Angelo Badalamenti, Mulholland Drive is a mystery without end, which is just the way Lynch likes them.
