Sounds simple and straightforward... But nothing is straightforward in a David Lynch film. Part erotic thriller, part fantasy, part nightmare, part enigma wrapped in a riddle – this is Lynch at his most daring, provocative and complex.
Mulholland Drive is a mind altering journey to the dark heart of the American Dream, where sinister forces lurk beneath every surface. Naive ingenue Betty Elms (Naomi Watts) has come to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune – but she finds something such more disturbing waiting in her apartment – a mysterious woman whose only memory is that someone is trying to kill her.
What begins as a simple premise unfolds into a shattering hallucinogenic vision of what it takes to make it in Hollywood. No one comes out with their soul intact.
