MULHOLLAND DRIVE

Storyline

The only survivor to a car accident on Mulholland Drive (the street) is a beautiful, dark haired woman. The car was going through the famous Hollywood Hills. Although she doesn´t die in the accident, she ends up severely injured and in a profound shock. With a lot of struggle, she manages to get to Los Angeles City and break into an apartment. The next scene is based on the life of another character, going by the name of Betty Elms, who is an aspiring actress trying to make it in the big city. She gets to the apartment that belongs to her aunt, Ruth but only finds the survivor with a severe case of amnesia. She assumes to be Rita because of a Rita Hayworth poster on the wall. Her purse contained a lot of money and also a blue key that is really unusual.

Movie Thriller

The Merriam-Webster dictionary informs us that the word Thriller comes from the word thrill and hence, it refers to a thrilling experience. They define it as “a work of fiction or drama designed to hold the interest by the use of a high degree of intrigue, adventure, or suspense”. If we think of this definition, then it might be a fitting category, but there are some things to be discussed about it.

Movie Reviews

“Extremely mysterious slow thriller with naomi at her peak in acting. Laura is amazing. Lori is funny and beautiful! End was chilling. Movie unique experience. Though little more clarity would have been fine. That is fiction and reality could have been little more sensible and flow should have been clearer i.e. identities, unreal image of Betty all the while and Rita how she landed up in car etc. All n All success”

Krishna Dhimant

“The movie is about difference between fiction and reality. First part is all about a young happy girl who is achieving every thing in life and second part is about a reality that she have loose every thing. But still there is lot of questions to ask like what is a role of cowboy and bluebox but I can ensure you that movie will haunt you for the rest of your life.”
