Mulholland Drive

“Hey, pretty girl, time to wake up.”

The Rio Theatre is pleased to present David Lynch‘s sexy, dreamlike and twisty neo-noir MULHOLLAND DRIVE on Monday, April 17. Lynch wrote and directed this story about two women (including Naomi Watts,in her star-making turn) who find themselves walking a fine line between truth and deception in the beautiful but dangerous netherworld of Hollywood.

A dark-haired woman (Laura Elena Harring) is left amnesiac after a car crash. She wanders the streets of Los Angeles in a daze before taking refuge in an apartment. There she is discovered by Betty (Watts), a wholesome Midwestern blonde who has come to the City of Angels seeking fame as an actress. Together, the two attempt to solve the mystery of Rita’s true identity. The story is set in a dream-like Los Angeles, spoilt neither by traffic jams nor smog.

You can discover a lot about yourself by getting lost in Mulholland Drive. It grips you like a dream that won’t let go.” (Rolling Stone)

A bone fide masterpiece. An erotic, deeply unsettling, darkly comic journey through the subconscious city of night.” (Empire Magazine)

Lynch gets dreams like almost no other filmmaker, because he understands that dreams are not metaphors, but irrationally assembled spaces in which we can’t help but look for symbolism and logic.” (AV Club)

MULHOLLAND DRIVE (David Lynch, 2001 / 147 mins / 18A) Along Mulholland Drive nothing is what it seems. In the unreal universe of Los Angeles, the city bares its schizophrenic nature, an uneasy blend of innocence and corruption, love and loneliness, beauty and depravity. A woman is left with amnesia following a car accident. An aspiring young actress finds her staying in her aunt’s home. The puzzle begins to unfold, propelling us through a mysterious labyrith of sensual experiences until we arrive at the intersection of dreams and nightmares.
