Mulholland Dr.
(David Lynch, 2001)

Quote from: 1SO
Mulholland Drive is as fresh and exciting now as it was back in 2001. One could see it as the quintessential Lynch film, with everything you would want from him.  Even better, it delivers the kind of Great things you hope for from any movie.

Quote from: sdedalus
I don't know that I can say anything coherent about it right now, but I loved every minute of it. Without a doubt one of the best of the decade.

Quote from: roujin
This film is just so much fun and I love the way that the film locks into place and whips back its narrative with all the doublings and all that awesome shit. It's probably Lynch's most satisfying and fully-formed thingie majigger (maybe also his funniest?). Its statements on Hollywood, other shit, IDENTITY (LOL) and whatever do nothing for me but the way that the film is constructed and shot and all that stuff gets me going in a different million directions. you blow my mind, hey!

Quote from: NedMeier
Mulholland Dr. is one of my all-time favorite films.

Quote from: Corndog
I ended up just writing down a million questions that were raised in my mind, hoping to keep track of what was going on and hoping they would be answered at some point down the line. My questions were never answered. That sort of frustrated me, but I think what Lynch was doing was letting the viewer answer their own questions, which I think I always like those types of movies where you can make it mean what you want it too.

Two in a row, yay!  The 10s are fast becoming the best decade ever!

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Not on my ballot, but I sure can't complain about seeing it here.

I just now noticed the existence of this thread, and I would like to point out how I find it funny that I was quoted for Eternal Sunshine, but I never submitted a ballot. So far this list is looking quite reasonable. I still don't get the hard-on for Wall-E, and I don't care for that silly Lynch film, but the rest look good. The only other one I wouldn't put there is Once. Great film. I love it. Not Top 20 of the Decade material really. Good work on this project though, sub-mods!

Hmm. I just saw it for the first time the other day. Interesting, but it wouldn't have made my ballot.

I worried about that.  A lot of people work off of the "Show new replies to your posts" button, but are like me and forget to also check this every once and awhile!

Oh, I only use that. It's just that I somehow ignored this thread. I don't know why. Maybe because I wasn't participating.
