David Lynch came through. I finally watched Mulholland Drive last night, it's an amazing flick. I'm still trying to take it all in! I think it's definitely one of those things that you have to let sink in, and additional viewings will probably help significantly. Before watching this film, I highly recommend getting a really good sound system with a subwoofer (I don't even have one yet), turning the volume up loud at the beginning, and forcing yourself not to adjust the volume for the film's duration. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do this, but I think it will make a huge difference. The film's use of ominous ambient sound is critical to the overall effect. It's my humble opinion that Lynch is one of the top 3 most important directors alive, perhaps of all time. You know, it's difficult to narrow the list of important directors down to 3, but I'm leaning toward Aronofsky and PT Anderson to round out the list. Now when the hell is my copy of GTA3 going to arrive???
