Mulholland Dr. (2001) dir. David Lynch
"Since these questions are being pondered by a master surrealist re-examining his own obsessions and personal iconography, 'Mulholland Drive' ranks alongside Fellini's '8 1/2' and other auteurist fantasias as a monumental self-reflection.
Looked at lightly, it is the grandest and silliest cinematic carnival to come along in quite some time: a lurching journey through one filmmaker's personal fun house. On a more serious level, its investigation into the power of movies pierces a void from which you can hear the screams of a ravenous demon whose appetites can never be slaked." (NY Times)
But is it boring? No.
