Mulholland Drive ★★★★

I won't pretend to say I have an understanding on first watch, though I was still compelled by Lynch's usual dreamy motifs, and I enjoyed the initial plot of Naomi Watts and Laura Harring getting into a Nancy Drew caper. It feels in some ways like a meditation on stardom and illusion, and studios and execs exploiting their talent, but at the same time it has a very Old Hollywood veneer that I'm not sure what to make of (other than Lynch's fascination with Americana).

Randomly, between CRANK, Old Town Road, and this film, Billy Ray Cyrus is involved in way too much of my entertainment.
