Amazingly, Mulholland Drive was originally a pilot for an ABC TV series that never got picked up. What a series it could have been! Viewers would have been scratching their heads from week to week and still kept coming back for more. ABC deemed it too controversal, and lacked some all-around faith. It seem's the censor's are sleeping nowaday's, so it was an amazing move, considering.
Mulholland star's: Naomi Watts, Laura Harring and Justin Theroux. All of whom were terrific. There were some scenes, such as "The introduction to Adam", and "The Audition" that would have alone been worth buying the disk. To me anyways.
Remember that most of what you see has a symbolism around things that happen in the ending subplot. This won't make sense until you have seen it. Flak Magazine does a wonderful job decifering all of the in's and out's. If you want a full fledged, interpretation, go there. Even though I understood most of the movie, after I read his review it made me feel a little stupid.
Mulholland Dr. is a rare, crazy-eyed vision of a woman's life, her desires and her failures. It was meant for open minded viewers who enjoy simple movies as much as the do complicated film's. ~s.a.o.s.~
