I ran across a blog posting on Mulholland Dr. which offers a quick breakdown and summary explanation of this ever-explorable masterpiece. The post also contains invaluable videos of interviews with Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, and David Lynch, and other useful links. I had previously watched the Inside the Actors Studio interview with Ms. Watts back before NBC destroyed Bravo, and it is excellent.
The author almost over-simplifies the movie, but then speaks to a truth that I and many others have found: Mulholland Dr. is eminently re-watchable. Though she gives a quick capsule of the story, she also pays due to the film’s rich complexity.
I’ve written about this movie a few times before, and always invite discussion.
