This Week’s Film at Bilkent Cinematics: Mulholland Drive

What to say about David Lynch’s highly influential 2001 classic “Mulholland Drive,” except that it must be seen to be believed? On the surface the story of a young actor (Naomi Watts) who emerges from a car accident in Hollywood only to find herself in a series of bizarre, dream-like adventures, it is a beautiful, strange noir mystery from the master of surreal cinema.  Critic Roger Ebert said of it, “The less sense it makes, the more we can’t stop watching it…this is a movie to surrender yourself to. If you require logic, see something else.”

No film knowledge is required to attend, but after the movie, students will be invited to discuss and debate any aspects of the movie that interest them: plotting, cinematography, acting, setting – anything that created interest or even confusion.

“Mulholland Drive” screens on Wednesday, February 22 at 5:30 p.m. in FFB-06 and is a joint presentation of Bilkent Cinematics and Think Colorfully/Bilkent Renkli Düşün. Pizza and beverages will be served. All Cinematics movies are subtitled in English, and everybody is welcome. For further information, contact Hossein Dabir at dabir@bilkent.edu.tr.
