U.S., 2001, 146 min, 35mm, Dir. David Lynch, Rated R, Universal Pictures
"The film is an intoxicating liberation from sense, with moments of feeling all the more powerful for seeming to emerge from the murky night world of the unconscious." - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
The crown jewel in David Lynch's twisted crown comes dressed as a noir by way of a fever dream in the seedy world of Hollywood. When starry eyed Betty (Naomi Watts) sets off to LA to realize her dreams as an actress, she sees the true Tinseltown in all its glory. Quickly befriending an unnamed & enigmatic amnesiac woman (Laura Harring), the innocent Betty is ill prepared for the twists and turns that lie in wait. Originally conceived as a television pilot (which unfortunately failed to impress the execs), Mulholland Drive is one of only two films from the 21st century to be included in Sight & Sound’s list of the fifty greatest films ever. Lynch himself received the Best Director award at Cannes and was nominated for the same award by the Academy. But don’t take our word for it: join us for this special 35mm screening and help us figure out just what Lynch’s “love story in the city of dreams” is all about.
The film will be preceded by a screening of Radiohead and Paul Thomas Anderson's music video "Daydreaming" on 35mm.
