New to our DVD collection is…

Mulholland Drive.  (I realized recently that, other than Twin Peaks, our collection is pretty sparse, David Lynch-wise, so I’m working on that…)

The Amazon description is:

Pandora couldn’t resist opening the forbidden box containing all the delusions of mankind, and let’s just say David Lynch, in Mulholland Drive, indulges a similar impulse. Employing a familiar film noir atmosphere to unravel, as he coyly puts it, “a love story in the city of dreams,” Lynch establishes a foreboding but playful narrative in the film’s first half before subsuming all of Los Angeles and its corrupt ambitions into his voyeuristic universe of desire. Identities exchange, amnesia proliferates, and nightmare visions are induced, but not before we’ve become enthralled by the film’s two main characters: the dazed and sullen femme fatale, Rita (Laura Elena Harring), and the pert blonde just-arrived from Ontario (played exquisitely by Naomi Watts) who decides to help Rita regain her memory. Triggered by a rapturous Spanish-language version of Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” Lynch’s best film since Blue Velvet splits glowingly into two equally compelling parts.

As always, if you would like to place a hold, please call the library at 985-2173 or visit our website.
