Betty (Naomi Watts) arrives in Hollywood, hoping to kick off her acting career. Her aunt Ruth (Maya Bond) has given her the use of her apartment and Betty is excited to get started. But then she finds Rita (Laura Harring) in her apartment, believing her to be a friend of Ruth’s. But Rita simply wandered into the apartment afte a car accident robbed her of all her memories, leaving her only with a sense of dread. Betty is dead-set on trying to figure out who Rita – if that is actually her name – is and who she’s running from.
Mulholland Drive was strange as is to be expected from a Lynch film, but much less of a mind fuck than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed watching it, mostly due to the fantastic performance by Naomi Watts.
