While it's definitely very weird, it's by and large not the same kind of weird as Eraserhead where you have living food (though it does have tiny grandparents), it's very slow-moving, and it really has a strong emotional throughline. The first time I saw it, I pretty much lost my breath during the last 15 minutes where I suddenly realized what the movie was about and the full arc of the "Betty" character, and I realized it's really pretty devastating. It immediately went to my top 5 or so movies ever, and has remained there ever since. I don't watch it that often cause it's just too harrowing for infinite rewatchability, but I saw it on DVD once and also did import the Studiocanal version and have watched that a few times. Naomi Watts gives possibly my favorite performance by an actress in any movie. It's a lot more beautiful in its weirdness than his earlier, better-known movies. If you're looking for a freak show, you might want to start with something more like Wild at Heart and work your way up to this since it's much more tasteful and restrained. I do see that you have Blue Velvet in your collection, so if you're a fan of that you might be safe with this one. That one's much more straightforward plot-wise but is also funnier and nastier. Basically Mulholland Drive is not the kind of weird movie like Forbidden Zone or Hausu or whatever where you watch it and are just delighted by how nuts it is, it's weird with a purpose and is really dark and moody and I kind of think of it as a romantic tragedy.
Last time I watched it Id forgotten how scary it is. Its like a horror film at times - but not your normal horror film of course.

And its not an easy watch either for those who dont know. You have been warned!

This movie may be the reason that I own half the blu-rays I do. It opened my eyes to what films could be.

One of the best things I've ever seen.

The Coffee Scene is one of the most bizarre/hilarious things I've ever seen...

This thread ought to be moved to Wish List.

Several of us have been saying that for about a year now, but in spite of the fact that this doesn't (to date) meet any of the normal criteria for having a thread in this forum, the mods have refused to move it. Does it seem likely that it's coming at some point? Yes. Is pro-bassoonist very reliable in the information he posts? Yes. But only having what essentially amounts to nothing more than rumors about the likelihood of release at some point in the future is still Wish Lists forum material, regardless of which forum member posts it.

Maybe the powers that be just like having a good laugh when everyone's hopes go up each time the thread gets bumped.

I certainly hope not, as that would mean the people creating the rules, aren't abiding by them.
I'll never understand why Criterion rumors receive a "pass", when every other rumored release is immediately transferred to the wishlist forum. It's not like the Mods don't know this thread is here. So I'm not sure why a double standard exists in this case. Rules are rules.

I'm just an eager as the next person, but if there's no hard release news to be found...put the thread where it belong: The Wishlist Forum.

I almost included a line in my post about rules needing to be followed regardless of who is posting. Glad you did.

I think it's ok in this forum. The source of the news bit did correct scoop THE INNOCENTS release. Also, I've heard Movies Unlimited tends to get word of Criterion releases 4-6 weeks before their announcements. . .

Until it's announced, there's a pre-order, or someone closely involved says it's definitely coming (Lynch, Criterion, etc.), it belongs in the Wish Lists forum. That's how other releases are dealt with, and the same should be applied here.

You also have to keep in mind that this thread was started over a year ago, and it's been in this forum without any concrete details the entire time. That information from Movies Unlimited was just posted yesterday.

And they also posted the Innocents was coming , plus David Lynch dropped that very cool clue last year. Just because it hasn't been announced does not mean they dont have it. Its become very clear that they do have it, but that doesnt mean it's going to be released right away. Because of the news story Im apt to think it could be coming sooner than later now.. maybe part of an October release or by the end of the year. I can MD being released with the Brood in October. La Dolce Vita was also on the page , hasnt been announced *officially* and there is a thread for that too , and I dont seen anyone whining or arguing where that thread should be. Arguing over the placement of threads...boy is that time well spent

And yet here you are.

Rules are rules. They shouldn't be bent, or broken, just because this happens to be heavily rumored.
It's quite simple: Announcement or Wishlist.
Clearly the rules are being ignored here. Which is, to say the least, quite troubling.

I thought you meant the diner scene. That's one of the scariest things I've ever seen.
