Mulholland Drive (Sous-titres français) [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Naomi Watts
"Mulholland Drive" is a remarkable movie in roughly every way possible. I was impressed when I first saw the movie, but after a couple more viewing, I truly began to appreciate what Lynch has created. I love David Lynch for both his good and his bad films, mostly because he won't compromise. I have yet to see him make a mainstream movie in a bid for cash. "Mulholland Drive" is another one of his many bizarre and semi-coherent movies, and this time, it's a really, really good one.
The plot centers on the relationship between two women, Rita, who has amnesia after an attempt on her life, and Betty, who came to Hollywood bright eyed and bushy tailed to be a star. The pair spend a… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, but overrated, Oct. 9 2003
This review contains spoilers. Don't read this if you haven't seen the movie yet.
I consider myself a horror movie afficionado, so when I hear so much buzz about a new horror movie, I'm always curious to see what all the fuss is about.

Donnie Darko (Widescreen) DVD ~ Jake Gyllenhaal
The first time I saw Donnie Darko, my jaw was hanging on the floor as the credits began to roll. I was literally staring at my TV, dumbfounded at the spectacle I had just witnessed. The only other movies I've seen that have produced a similar effect were "Requiem for a Dream," and, to a lesser extent, "Mulholland Drive." If you liked those two movies, you'll like "Donnie Darko," especially if you found "Requiem" too depressing and "Mulholland" too jumbled. Granted, it's a downer, and it's convoluted, but not as much as the other two, thus sort of being an in between of those two movies. First time writer and director (and hopefully not last time) Richard Kelly has created an… Read more
