Bit of a public service announcement here. Great movie, obviously, and if you don't already have it, this is certainly the edition to buy. BUT, if you have the previous DVD and you're thinking of upgrading to the new edition, I really wouldn't bother. The main selling point to me was chapter selections, which were notoriously absent previously, but notice that the new chapter divisions are "David Lynch approved"... There are now six chapters, four of which are in the last half hour (of a two and a half hour movie). They're only accessible from the menu (so you still can't skip ahead when the film is running, as you couldn't before), and the menu itself gives you absolutely no clue as to what the chapters actually are. So the main disc is really no more user-friendly than before. I think that's quite funny, but I wish I hadn't paid 14 quid to find out. As for the second disc of extras, the "making of" is not a documentary but just a lot of raw footage from the shoot and not very interesting, and the Cannes press conference isn't very illuminating either - not that I was expecting answers or explanations, but Lynch just looks bored and uncomfortable, and the rest of the cast just gush about how wonderful he is. Plus, the questions from the audience have been edited out, so the panel are replying to questions you haven't heard. The rest of the extras were already on the original release.

You DO get a booklet of the Mulholland Drive chapter from Lynch on Lynch, but that book is so good I'm guessing most Lynch fans - like me - have it already. For those who don't, but who do have Mulholland Drive from the previous release, spend your tenner on that book instead.

My first introduction to Mulholland Drive came when my family went to see it. Upon their return I asked them what the film was about. Their response? 'You can't describe it'. So I went with a friend to the cinema to see for myself. The film was trully stunning and one of the greatest cinematic experiences of my life. But I could not understand what the Hell had just happened! We spent the next two hours walking through town, eventually sitting down by a basketball court with a couple of cokes trying to work out just what is supposed to have happened.

The film is incredible on so many levels; its unusual structure to the plot allows for many, otherswise impossible occurances like the creepy meeting in the coral with the 'Cowboy', the strange, crippled mobster and the eccentric, espresso loving gangsters, the 'monster' behind Winkies and many others. The best scenes in the film are the terrifying discovery in Diane Selwyn's house, the audtion for the singers (with the dream Camilla singing a cheesey 50s style lover song that makes me shiver now), the scene in the bedroom (hey, I'm only a man) and the shudderingly powerful part in Club Silencio.

The directing is unique and very innovative, the acting is outstanding, especially Naomi Watts (not since Al Pacino had an actor changed so subtely, so much in one film) and the plot (both before you understand it but even more so after) is amazing. Without doubt, the best film so far this millenium, I believe, that like Citizen Kane, Shawshank Redemption and others overlooked at the time, it will be remembered as a trully great film. Watch it, then watch it again, and again until you get it, trust me , it's worth it!

Format: DVD
Diane, an unsuccessful actress, has a sexual relationship with Camille, a rising star. But Camille tires of the affair, trying to call it off and getting engaged to Adam, a director. Diane, in a jealous rage, engages the services of a hitman, telling him to kill Camille. He says that she will know the deed has been done when a blue key appears in her apartment. Having hired the man, Diane repents and has a dream*. When the blue key turns up, she is tormented by hallucinatory guilt and kills herself.
* The dream.
The dream occupies the first three-quarters of the film. It is Diane's wish-fulfilment fantasy, embodying the following desires:
1. The failure of the hitman to kill Camille.
2. The continuation of her sexual relationship with Camille.
3. Her own success as an actress.
4. Revenge on Adam, for having stolen Camille from her.
In the dream Diane sheds her identity and becomes Betty, fresh-faced, naïve, happy, and - crucially - a very talented actress, whose ability is acknowledged by everyone she meets. She only fails to get the starring part in Adam's film because the mafia have coerced him into giving the part to Camille. When Diane and Adam first clap eyes on each other it is obvious that he is thinking, "This is the girl." So Camille's success is not the result of any talent she may have. Moreover, Camille herself becomes transformed in Diane's dream into a nobody, an amnesiac who needs her help.
The developing relationship between the two women in this part of the film is classic, unimaginative wish-fulfilment stuff: two people thrown together by circumstances share a bed for the sake of practicality and end up as lovers.
In fact, the whole of the dream sequence reveals the paucity of Diane's imagination.
