Why not? Even if you don't like the storytelling, does the visual element of the medium do nothing for you? 'Cause there are plenty of movies that are basically just cool visuals mixed with cool music.

Mulholland Drive is good but the David Lynch is still a pretty overrated director. He's not half as weird or interesting as people make him. Plus he often resorts to straight up cheese.

I couldn't tell how serious the movie's themes are meant to be taken

is this a serious commentary about how sex and violence is used in mass media to "open us up" to suggestion?

or is Cronenberg having a bit of fun with a surreal visual depiction of these ideas about how mass media influences us

not knowing anything about Cronenberg or film in general I wouldn't be able to contextualize it, additionally it's difficult to divorce oneself from viewing the movie as someone living in 2018 where violence and sex in media is well worked politicized ground vs. the early 80's

You stopped watching Inland Empire because it was too weird for you, but he's not weird. K then.
