Screening: “Mulholland Drive”
Gaborone Film Society presents a free screening of “Mulholland Drive”
In a 2016 BBC poll among film critics, Mulholland drive was voted the best film of the 21st century. The film is enigmatic, defying a straightforward interpretation.
“A bright-eyed young actress travels to Hollywood, only to be ensnared in a dark conspiracy involving a woman who was nearly murdered, and now has amnesia because of a car crash. Eventually, both women are pulled into a psychotic illusion involving a dangerous blue box, a director named Adam Kesher, and the mysterious night club Silencio.’
The critic Roger Ebert, one of the foremost champions of the film, said: “This is a movie to surrender yourself to. If you require logic, see something else. Mulholland Drive works directly on the emotions, like music. Individual scenes play well by themselves, as they do in dreams, but they don’t connect in a way that makes sense–again, like dreams. The way you know the movie is over is that it ends. And then you tell a friend, ‘I saw the weirdest movie last night.” Just like you tell them you had the weirdest dream.’ “
