USA (2001),145 min.Dir:David Lynch.
Lynch’s atmospheric film noir intertwines the stories
of Betty (Naomi Watts), a perky Hollywood hopeful,
and Rita (Laura Harring), amnesiac from a car
accident along Mulholland Drive, with strange and
macabre doings in the world behind the scenes of
showbiz. Originally a pilot for a TV series,the film
weaves together disparate plot lines and characters
in a way that may or may not ultimately make any
rational sense...you decide.
