I don't completely agree, but I do think it was weird for the sake of being weird. I like my movies to at least make a little bit of sense...

Don't watch Surrealism then.

Here's a review I found on RYM that sums up Mulholland Drive nicely. (Some spoilers)
Quote:
How to make a cult classic movie:

1. DO NOT END IT! The worst thing any director can do to their film is offer any sense of conclusion whatsover. I know it sounds sketchy, but so long as you say you're 'leaving it open to interpretation' people will mistake your laziness for genius. Trust me, it works every time!

2. Don't stop at leaving just one plotline unfinished! The more the merrier, introduce as many intriguing, entirely unrelated plots as you can, publicly swear on your life that they're all related, and laugh heartily as people scramble to figure out how it all connects! Always a gas!

3. Anybody can throw a bunch of stupid random things together at the end of a movie and seem artsy, but YOU'RE different. You have the midas touch when it comes to cinematic non sequitur and your fans know it. Old people crawling out of paper bags?! It's so genius. SO genius. I'm gonna start fingering myself now.

4. Want to throw in some tasteless lesbian nude scenes? Normally these would be dismissed as tacky and useless, but so long as you have a long running reputation as a 'genius' film director they'll be seen as 'artful' and 'a metaphor'

5. Worried that people will see through your countless filmmaking bluffs? Never fear! Your army of devoted fans will mercilessly attack everyone who dares to bash your masterpiece as being artless neanderthals.

Well, now you're on your way to becoming a genius film director. Hopefully this guide has given you a look inside the mind of some of film's greatest minds, as well as some ideas of your own! See you at Cannes, maestro!

It was interesting, and I'm glad I watched it. I'm fascinated by how much legal protection these meat/food companies have.

But it didn't make me a vegetarian, if that's what you're asking.

Wow...a million times better than I thought it would be. Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart kicked so much ass. They WERE Cherie Currie and Joan Jett. One of the best movies I've seen in a while.

This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Way better than the first one, which was still awesome.

That's exactly why I'll never probably watch it! I just watched Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen - absolute garbage. Although it was great seeing Megan Fox look nature before all her unnecessary plastic surgery!

I recently watched this film as part of an ongoing initiative to culture myself.
