Re-released to coincide with the new Twin Peaks series, it’s apt that Mulholland Drive was originally conceived as a TV pilot. Perhaps it’s for the best it ended up in (relatively) short form. The film, weighing in at 2.5 hours, is an epic mind-bender on its own terms, and there’s barely a wasted frame.
It begins with a car accident on Mulholland Drive. A woman, who will become known as Rita (Laura Harring), survives with a knock to the head. She stumbles away and hides in an empty house. The house belongs to Aunt Ruth, whose niece Betty (Naomi Watts) arrives the next day. She’s come to L.A. with the dream of an acting career. Rita and Betty become friends. But Rita can’t remember anything – not even her real name »

Yes, yes, and yes! Now That's how you do a season finale!
On Taboo Season 1 Episode 8, we go from intense sadness to thrilling, pulse pounding action at the drop of a hat. I haven't seen a season finale like this in many a year, and the ending begs for at least one more season. Do the right thing, FX.
I expected to pick up with the Delaney/Strange meeting, so it was quite a shock to see it start with the sad and pathetic Zilpha ending her suffering by hurling herself into the Thames.
She was never really treated well in this show, having been abused by her hubby Thorne, and astral-raped by her crazy half brother the entire series.
Women in general got the raw end of the deal here, but maybe that's just the way it was back then. Doesn't make it any easier to watch, though.
