Winner of the Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival and with a similar nomination at the Oscars, the masterpiece that is “Mulholland Drive” wanders in the shadows of Hollywood, in a nighttime Los Angeles, along with two women who are trying to solve a mystery. Identities change, characters are deconstructed, the plot falls apart and is reconstructed to reveal hell itself in a world where people exist solely as puppets, truth is made up and love is just another orchestrated lie. The dream suddenly turns into a nightmare. And the rest become silent. Silencio!

A horror film with show business as the villain, a venomous letter addressed to the world of illusion and a desperate tragic story. Winner of Best Director at Cannes, nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director and the title of one of the masterpieces of modern cinema, ‘Mulholland Drive’ roams in Hollywood’s shadow following two women trying to solve a mystery, a young director in danger, a mysterious blue box and its key.
Identities change, characters disintegrate, the story collapses and is reconstructed to reveal hell itself in a world where people exist only as puppets, truth is manufactured and love is one more orchestrated lie. The dream suddenly becomes a nightmare. And the rest is silence. Silencio! L.K.
