Mulholland DriveBy rcruz71 from Berkshire , 20 Oct 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]This was one of the most rewarding movies I've seen... after I watched it a second time. As with any David Lynch film, you have to pay attention or you'll miss something (or everything). The great thing about films like these, which are few and far between in a popcorn eating commercial world, is that it makes you think about the film after you've seen it. You have to do a little work, but it's so satisfying when you get it. So, get it..!

Dull as dishwaterBy Somethingsimple (15 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013My goodness....what on earth was THAT about? Pretentious and self indulgent clap trap with lots of male fantasy about Lesbians.
Very rewarding for the intelligent viewer.By 528491 (3 reviews) , 17 Jun 2013Excellent film. A work of art. If you're a person who likes to indulge in a well-written, well-acted film with a great story (rather than go for something mindnumbingly action-packed) then go for this. Definitely a rewarding experience and a film that you can mull over in your mind at the end with a brilliant ending to boot. Those who didn't like the film simply didn't get it. If you think you have the capacity to sit through an entire film and concentrate then go for it. You wont be disappointed.
Is there a helpline? we have to talk about this filmBy Hofeld (1 review) , 16 Jun 2013Wasn't that guy in the wheelchair the dwarf in twin peaks who spoke backwards? As the story progresses it gets very 'Peakesque' - symbols and phantom characters, such as the bogeyman up the alley. It is camp - the 50s music, make up, colour; the dumb exaggerated characterisation of the accident detectives; Betty's mocking travel friends, in fact teeth close ups communicate a great deal, and the mobsters exaggerated reactions like spoilt children at the casting meeting. It all points to a very Freudian account of a spurned lover's feelings as she works through her emotions, her perception of events distorted as if in a dream where real events have added weirdness. After an hour of laying out the basic story, the threads start to diverge, Rita's centrality fades as the story shifts to Betty, shedding clues on the opening sequences and revealing the characters as real or phantom. My advice is to stick with it and from these reviews it seems that is what people have been compelled to do. Excellent film
Waste of timeBy JoeLehane (2 reviews) , 07 Jun 2013Complete total and utter waste of time. Do not watch this. Cobbled together rubbish. God how I am sorry that I watched this.

Im split between very clever and pretentious nonsenseBy Bassman71 (630 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 28 May 2013Woman escapes assassination and car crash, hides in house, young actress comes to Hollywood, stays in friend of her Aunts house, actress and woman from car crash meet. A David Lynch film which feels like an episode of Twin Peaks for 2/3s of it but then Lynch weirdness takes over for the remainder. The acting does seem a little odd at times although Naomi Watts is fine and Lynchs use of music is always very good. Im split between very clever and pretentious nonsense but I didnt enjoy it as much as Id thought so Im leaning towards the latter.
