Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Mulholland Dr. (2001)
This is the David Lynch film that put me over the edge. Never again!
I don't care if he's the auteur of the century. NOTHING ON THE SCREEN MAKES ANY SENSE!! I didn't major in film at a small art college, so there needs to be some semblance of a sensical story happening on screen. Naomi Watts' fine performance is wasted here. It's buried beneath all the usual Lynch undertones, which have a distinct way of unnerving you as you watch, and then leaving you unfulfilled at the end.
