7Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive

David Lynch’s MULHOLLAND DRIVE is not a story but a mosaic of stories, eras, moods, characters, and themes that intersect, overlap and parallel like a dream. A luscious brunette is about to be shot by a limo driver when a car filled with carousing teenagers slams into the limo.

The brunette limps away and hides out in an apartment. She has amnesia, and when asked her name, she says “Rita,” as in Rita Hayworth. Betty, a fresh-faced ingenue hoping to make it as an actress in LA, tries to help Rita find out who she is.

Meanwhile, young director Adam is pressured by some very dangerous-looking guys to give a particular actress the lead in his new movie. Themes of dreams and reality, identity and anonymity, innocence and corruption, creativity and conformity, ripple and resonate in the scenes that follow.

Eventually, Betty turns into Diane, who used to be dead, and Betty’s aunt’s landlady, or is it Adam’s mother, is played by 1940’s musical star Ann Miller, and all of this does not seem as out of place as it otherwise might. Betty tells Rita that she wants to help her solve the mystery because “It’ll be just like in the movies.”

5Black Swan

Black Swan

Nina Sayers lives for ballet. She’s a beautiful but joyless dancer who’s both afraid to fail and afraid to succeed. Her mother, a former dancer, worries that the pressure will break Nina, but she doesn’t recognize how her own vise-like grip on her daughter’s life is harmful, too.

When manipulative genius choreographer Thomas plucks Nina from the corps and gives her the role of the Black Swan in Swan Lake, Nina can almost taste triumph. But immediately, it weighs her down.

She’s afraid she won’t live up to Thomas’ expectations. And she’s certain that a new dancer, Lily, is after her part, a conviction that strengthens when Thomas makes the other dancer Nina’s understudy.

Watching Beth, whom Nina herself replaced, self-destruct only serves to emphasize the stakes. Worse, Nina’s demons — the drive to purge, the need to hurt, and more — are coming alive.
