But what does David Lynch really think of Hollywood? Mulholland Drive reveals both his passionate, radiant belief in the rich possibilities of American popular culture and his dark insight into its capacity to destroy its best and brightest. Everything hinges on one moment in which the destinies of seemingly disparate people join in an irreversible trajectory. Double identities, shifts in time and space, music, and the fertile darkness of the unknown all serve as elements by means of which Lynch conveys his vision.
