    This is a movie to surrender yourself to. If you require logic, see something else. Mulholland Drive works directly on the emotions, like music. show more

    Like "Memento," Mulholland Drive is an amnesiac noir in the tradition that goes back to "Spellbound" and "Somewhere in the Night." show more
