Mulholland Drive

It would be rather irresponsible of me to imply that I frequently watch more unusual, arty, left field films and not watch something by the director David Lynch.

David Lynch - surreal, creative, controversial, genius, nut job, it is difficult to say. I would say, after watching Mulholland Drive that surreal may well be an understatement.

The film started normally enough, with a few slightly brush-under-the-carpet strange moments and a growing tense atmosphere. Then BOOM! What is going on? What is happening? Isn't that? Where has? WHO.....? WHY.......? The end.

Yes it was confusing but it had just enough of a thread of sense running through it that it was difficult not to spend the next three days trying to 'figure' it out. I think I need to watch it again. So if you want to be tested, a little creeped out, then confused and slightly incredulous this is the film for you. If you like a story that makes sense, then please, run away screaming.
