IT’S A STUNNING STARRING DEBUT, ONE THAT SHOULD DECISIVELY PUT WATTS ON THE HOLLYWOOD AND INTERNATIONAL MAP
Like many of Lynch’s films Mulholland Dr. is wonderfully dreamy. Filled with crisp lines and sharp colour there’s a real sense of comic book throughout something that makes the film really pop.
From the outset of the film the noir conventions are set – a beautiful girl (played by Laura Elena Harring) has a gun pulled on her while obviously held hostage in a motor vehicle on the outskirts of LA.
A terrible accident on the road is both curse and saviour for our mysterious heroine as she escapes with amnesia and hides in an apartment.
Arriving in town is Betty (Watts) an aspiring actress who finds our mystery woman hiding. Together they seek to find out the how, what, when and why of our protagonist hidden world. Along the way we’re treated to many great cinematic delights the ilk of which only David Lynch can provide.
Mulholland Dr. is here presented in Australia for the first time in a sensational brand new digital restoration.
