  • Ebert says it best, I think, when he says

    And then you tell a friend [suntimes.com], "I saw the weirdest movie last night." Just like you tell them you had the weirdest dream.

    He adds a bit to it in a later article [suntimes.com].

    • "Mulholland Drive" works directly on the emotions, like music.

      You can only acknowledge Lynch's virtuosity here, even if you don't like the movie. (Even though I don't think there's a complete lack of logic here. Depends on the viewpoint. Joyce's final chapter of the second part of Ulysses seems completely illogical -- until you understand that this chapter doesn't depict the dream of one character or another, but rather the dream of the book itself, playing with its own symbols. I think Mullholland Drive

  • I rented this a while back and made a few comments of my own.

    You can read them here [perl.org] if you like.

    You were clearly more patient with this movie than I was.

    • Yeah, I guess you could say I was patient. Thing is, I kept watching hoping for clues that would help make it all make sense. Well, some people appear to have figured out a fair bit of it, but I was not able to on my own. Heck, I didn't even figure out that the first part was just imaginary.

      Now I'm left with this disturbing sensation of incompleteness (i.e. lack of "closure")... perhaps even incompletability. That's the only reason I want to know "what's going on", just to ease that unease.

      All in all
    • djberg, As far as I'm concerned you totally missed the point if you "lost patience" like that.

      Maybe it works better seeing it on the big screen too. Big dark room. Big pictures. Big sound. Get absorbed into the oddness.

      See it again with a more open mind. :-)

        Oh, I got the point (as much as David Lynch *ever* has a point). *My* point is that I just didn't give a shit.
