Very Good "Mulholland Drive'' is rapt and beautiful and absorbing,
but except for a few scenes, it lacks the revelatory charge that ''Blue Velvet''
had 15 years ago. .. watching it is like strolling through a corridor of the
David Lynch fun house: He's become the most deliriously self-referential crafter
of Hitchcockian art thrillers since Brian De Palma.''
James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
Average "Mulholland Drive is filled with its share of
"Twin Peaks"-ish moments. But, after a promising start and an engaging
midsection, there's the third act to deal with. And it's not a pretty sight. He
throws everything into the mix with the lone goal of confusing us. Nothing makes
any sense. There's no purpose or logic to events''
Roger Ebert Full
Excellent "This is a movie to surrender yourself to. If you require
logic, see something else. Mulholland Drive works directly on the
emotions, like music. Individual scenes play well by themselves, as they do in
dreams, but they don't connect in a way that makes sense--again, like dreams.
The way you know the movie is over is that it ends. And then you tell a friend,
"I saw the weirdest movie last night." Just like you tell them you had
the weirdest dream.''

Excellent "An intriguingly mysterious, self-reflexive ode to the
dream factory, it's one of Lynch's most satisfying films. ..the film's
final half hour is a spine-tingling, completely mystifying sequence of events
that imply as many interpretations of what the film has been about as there are
plot cul de sacs and narrative dead ends.''
