A bright-eyed young actress travels to Hollywood, only to be ensnared in a dark conspiracy involving a woman who was nearly murdered, and now has amnesia because of a car crash. Eventually, both women are pulled into a psychotic illusion involving a dangerous blue box, a director named Adam Kesher, and the mysterious night club Silencio. Written by
Rebekah Del Rio (the singer at Club Silencio) first met David Lynch when a talent agent took her, on a whim, to a recording studio where Lynch happened to be and asked her to sing a song for him. She performed an impromptu version of "Llorando" which, also on a whim (and without her knowledge) was being taped by the audio engineer. Years later, Lynch decided to incorporate the song into "Mullholland Dr."; except for a few minor tweaks, this is the exact same recording used in the movie. See more »

It seemed to me that the director or writer, whoever is just trying to be clever.
All they want is for everybody to watch and not have a clue, then what! We're supposed to applaud his genius when we find out what was going on.
I bet Mr Lynch is one of them people that always thinks they're better and smarter and know more than you. And most of the people that like this film will be like that as well because they think they are so smart for understanding it.
I've seen it and read theories, and I think it's all a load of rubbish, it's never clear at any point in the film what is actually going on, and that to me is not a good film. How can it be a good film if you have to make up half the story yourself to figure out whats going on.
And how is it the top 250, I can only assume these are those arrogant people that think they are so brilliant and that because they got the film then it is brilliant. When in fact Mr Lynch could just as well take any random series of events and call it a film.
