    david lynch talks in interviews about how his films are best left to the interpretation of the viewer..

    find meaning in it however you like..

    an naive girl comes to the big city and gets a lot more than she bargained for
    a tale of two women with interweaving identities
    or of two women leading forms of the same life in a parallel universe.

    its mysterious, enigmatic..
    i think he is starting to get at an 'abstract' genre of film
    where the plot is not simply exposition and development leading to a climax and resolution..he is exploring a new concept of storytelling, with the viewer fillin in the blanks..

    an excerpt from a site:
    'A love story in the city of dreams'

    Exploring some of his favourite themes - amnesia / memory; roads / travelling and alter egos / changing identities, Mulholland Drive is fortunately not simply a rerun on the Lost Highway._

    Its origin as a product for television turns out to be - mostly - a positive factor here, as the film stays close to its protagonists. The performances of Laura Elena Harring, Naomi Watts and Justin Theroux are the heart of this film, with the events loosely attached to them.

    If anything, Mulholland Drive is close to Twin Peaks, both the series and the feature film, taking much time to create spheres and moods around the characters without paying much attention to a tight narrative or evoking tension. Which doesn`t mean that the clues and hints given add up to something that will make perfect sense, it´s just that one could enter an endless loop of the film at any and leave if you think you´ve gotten enough of it._

    Mulholland Drive is the complete opposite of a "thriller", so don`t expect a climax or a solution._

    and from a New Yorker review:

    If I were pinned down and forced to venture a suggestion as to what "Mulholland Drive" is about, I might say that it is about faking it - about the rare pleasure of slipping into the skin of someone else. All the flashpoints of this ardent movie are touched off by deceit; when a woman named Rebekah del Rio - a real-life singer from Los Angeles - sobs her soul out in a stage rendition of "Llorando," she ends up swooning to the floor, and yet her voice carries on. She was miming to a tape, yet the mimicry of passion was enough to fell her. More stirring still is an audition at which Betty reads lines for a cheesy love scene. She has already tried them out with Rita at home, and nothing happened; now, faced with a tan fellow-actor, she gives her all, and the pearly hopeful is suddenly transfigured into a bad girl, ravenous and raw.

    some food for thought

    there is plenty all over the net about this
