So, I used to try to figure out what Mulhollalnd Dr. was about. Then, I decided that was no use. After returning to this film, 10 years wiser about life and with a recent BS in film production added to my cinematically analytic arsenal, I think I'd like to give another shot at attempting to explain what I think Mulholland Dr. is about--my apologies to David Lynch, as I assume he discourages this type of discourse.
- One person telling another about a dream they had with the other person in it.
- That first person then becoming frightened after seeing that the account of the dream scares the listener.
- That first person then attempting to confront the dream, in reality, and being killed by it.
