Mulholland Drive...

Either I'm getting cinematically soft in the head, or David Lynch passed me up years ago. I just finished watching Mulholland Drive and am completely confused. I knew what was happening for the first 2/3 movie...the got totally lost. Can someone help me out??? Please???

I'm a huge David Lynch fan and have seen almost everything he's done (except for Eraserhead, which is on my list) and I should be able to follow the plot, but I'm baffled and am feeling slightly dumb. And now my head hurts. I miss the days of a good ol' severed ear.

Also, I must investigate Justin Theroux.

I taught this film a couple years ago, and I had to have something to give to my students to explain it. I stumbled on a Salon article that explains it PERFECTLY:

I think it's time for me to see this movie. I am a huge Lynch fan. Absolutely loved Wild at Heart and Twin Peaks, but haven't see some of his other stuff.

The plots are confusing so I had to stop reading this Salon.com article. I will see it someday.
