    Watch the entire clip dialogue all the way to the build up. If you appreciate films you'd understand [​IMG]

    I can understand your view. It actually makes NO sense at all but as a movie buff I can appreciate the movies cinematography and the directors placement of a lot of things. I feel like with this the screen writers dropped the ball making the script make sense on screen. However this SCENE alone is one of the best I have ever seen in a thriller ever. The build up and the narrative and the dudes expressions are deep.

    Plebeian taste detected.

    Stick to Michael Bay and Kevin Smith movies kid.

    If you like Mulholland Drive, you should really check out Lost Highway. It's my favorite Lynch film and plays with many of the same themes as Mulholland Drive.

    If you feel like the "screen writers" dropped the ball, I take it you haven't watched much Lynch. Mulholland Drive is pretty damn cut and dry. Most people consider it to be Lynch's masterpiece, but I would argue that it's merely a remedial version of his earlier film, Lost Highway.

    Critics and the public did not respond well to Lost Highway. Most people, critics included, do not like ambiguity in their movies. They want clear cut protagonists, antagonists, beginnings middles and ends. Textbook Lynch doesn't work this way. His films are much more vague and open to interpretation, but he always leaves enough clues in there for the discerning viewer to figure out what's going on. Many people criticize Lost Highway for being too hard to follow or not making any sense. Once the "shift" happens in Mulholland Drive, it's quite easy to see whats been going on. While Lost Highway is a bit more ambiguous than Mulholland Drive, the main character Fred has a line in the movie that explains everything if you're paying attention.

    The simplicity and similarities of Mulholland Drive compared to Lost Highway makes more sense if you know that Mulholland Drive was a re-worked script for an unaired TV pilot. It wasn't intended to be as complex as one of Lynch's feature films. It was intended to employ Lynchian elements, but not at the expense of viewership and ratings. Lynch put a lot of time and effort into Lost Highway, but it was too complex for the average viewer and went right over their heads. I believe that Mulholland Drive and the statements it made about Hollywood was a means for Lynch to stick it to the same people who crapped all over Lost Highway. "See, I made the same movie, toned down the weirdness and explained everything for you...now you all love it".

    Dude, you can't just post that scene and expect the average NTer to respond to it logically. It means nothing without seeing the rest of the film. It's one of my Top 10 films of all time. It's incredible. But I'd never expect your average NTer to understand it, let alone that random scene.

    ***** I ain't nobody's "kid" - my friends and I do this for a living...

    ...you're just a fan boy trying to be pretentious and give off the vibe that you know the slightest thing about film - like I said, that ******' movie sucked and all the money wasted making it should have been donated to charity.

    Agreed on this. I'm a big fan of Lynch and think folks need to watch the film first (maybe even multiple viewings).
