20. Mulholland Drive
David Lynch has been making fascinating movies (and TV shows) for 30 years, but in almost all cases those movies are remarkable but not quite excellent; his personal obsessions tend to get in the way, derailing his already tenuous narrative lines. “Mulholland Drive” is the exception: this is a wonderfully moody, puzzling but flawless Hollywood mystery noir as only Lynch could conceive it. You won’t get the premise the first time through — at least, I didn’t — but the mood comes through loud and clear. And half the joy here is watching it again.
