MULHOLLAND DR. is playing at the New Mission Theater as part of our latest series TALES OF THE OBSESSED: Ingrid Goes West and The Movies That Inspired It.
«I love stories about outsiders — intense, desperate or lonely people with their faces pressed against the glass, searching for a way in or some kind of real human connection. Like their protagonists, these films don't conform to society's standards; they're wild and unpredictable, sometimes dangerous or uncomfortable to watch, but always fascinating. When Aubrey Plaza and I were making Ingrid Goes West and looking for inspiration, these were the films we kept coming back to again and again for their fearless performances and mastery of tone. Thanks to the good people at Alamo Drafthouse for letting us share them with you. Enjoy!» — Matt Spicer, director of INGRID GOES WEST
MULHOLLAND DR. showcases Lynch’s inclinations toward film noir, fragmented narratives, surreal imagery and beautiful women in a nightmarish landscape called Hollywood. The film stars Naomi Watts as Betty Elms, a dewy-eyed, fledgling actress arriving in Hollywood with dreams of stardom. Laura Herring stars as Rita, a mysterious woman who suffers acute amnesia after a car crash on Mulholland Drive.
After meeting Rita, Betty becomes an amateur sleuth to try to solve the case of Rita’s missing identity. The narrative of the film begins to fold in on itself as questions pile up and answers disappear. Lynch leads us around corners we are not sure we want to go around and we're swallowed into a black hole of a dark dreams.
