About Mulholland Drive (film) in brief
Mulholland Drive is a 2001 surrealist neo-noir mystery film written and directed by David Lynch. It tells the story of an aspiring actress named Betty Elms who meets and befriends an amnesiac woman recovering from a car accident. The film earned Lynch the Prix de la mise en scène at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, sharing the prize with Joel Coen for The Man Who Wasn’t There. Lynch would also earn an Academy Award nomination for Best Director. It is often regarded as one of Lynch’s finest works and one of the greatest films of the 21st century, ranking 28th in the 2012 Sight & Sound critics’ poll of the best films ever made. It was the last feature film to star veteran Hollywood actress Ann Miller and launched Harring’s career, boosted Watts’ Hollywood profile considerably, and was the first film to feature Mark Pellegrino and Robert Forster. The American-French co-production was originally conceived as a television pilot, and a large portion of the film was shot in 1999 with Lynch’s plan to keep it open-ended for a potential series. After viewing Lynch’s cut, however, television executives rejected it, and Lynch then provided an ending to the project, making it a feature film. The general meaning of the movie’s events is open to interpretation, but Lynch has declined to offer an explanation of his intentions for the narrative, leaving audiences, critics, and cast members to speculate on what transpires.
