"Mulholland Drive"

I watched this again last night for the first time in years, and some of the images are still floating in my head today... whether all the pieces make sense or not (I think they don't), the overall story is still strong, given that it was a TV movie-pilot for a series and David Lynch went back later and cobbled it into a single movie. Some of the images are stronger than anything he's done before or since, and the music is beautiful and truly haunting. When you see it again, Naomi Watts' performance takes on a whole new depth of meaning; it's really an Oscar-level piece of acting. And Ann Miller's casting as the landlady becomes not just a campy hoot (which it is), but an important part of the story. I'm sure some people find it pretentious, or just something David Lynch made up as he went along. But does anyone else like it? (If you haven't seen it and you plan to, best to close this thread right now; the less you know going into "Mulholland Drive" the better.)
