Mulholland Drive (2001)

It tells the story of . . . well, there's no way to finish that sentence. . . .
David Lynch's dreamlike and mysterious classic MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a twisty neo-noir adventure with an unconventional structure. The film features a mesmerising performance from Naomi Watts as an aspirating actor in the dark fringes of Hollywood.

Widely considered Lynch's finest film, many critics who were previously unimpressed with the director's work have conceded that he finally hit his target with this masterpiec.

MULHOLLAND DRIVE was named the best film of the decade by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, Cahiers du cinéma, IndieWire, Slant Magazine, Reverse Shot, The Village Voice and Time Out New York.

In the British Film Institute's 2012 Sight & Sound poll, MULHOLLAND DRIVE was ranked the 28th greatest film ever made. Having received 40 critics' votes, it is one of only two films from the 21st century to be included in the list. In a 2015 BBC poll, it was ranked 21st among all American films. The following year, MULHOLLAND DRIVE was named as the greatest film of the 21st century in a poll conducted by BBC Culture.

Despite the circumstances, Lisa loves her staff and the customers and has an infectious optimism. She is also fiercely protective of her employees, helping them deal with absent babysitters, money problems and abusive boyfriends.

A family takes a road trip from Argentina to Brazil in the beautiful Brazilian beach town of Florianopolis, and along the way their holiday opens up new and exciting experiences.

Argentine writer-director Ana Katz has a gift for capturing aspects of women’s experiences rarely found in film. Her latest is her best yet, unfolding as an alluringly breezy portrait of a middle-class family on holiday. Only gradually does its episodic narrative reveal deep wells of wisdom regarding aging, desire, self-knowledge, and the wayward nature of long-term relationships.
