Time Out says

Originally intended for TV, Mulholland Dr. is much in the mould of Twin Peaks and Lost Highway. Lynch's characteristically bizarre noir focuses (probably too strong a word!) on a young beauty (Harring) who loses her memory after a car accident and hides out in a house where she's found and befriended by the absent owner's helpful niece (Watts), new to LA in the hope of becoming an actress. Meanwhile, a hot young film director (Theroux) is having trouble with the Mob trying to influence his choice of leading lady. Despite too many detours into nonsensical narrative cul-de-sacs, and too many shots that slowly travel towards corners down darkened corridors to the accompaniment of ominous rumbles, this works well enough as unsettlingly nightmarish suspense. That is, until it suddenly and stupidly decides to switch characters' identities, leaving one with a so-what feeling of déjà vu.

"Pity it -deliberately- blocks a credible explanation for the plot by continually switching the identities of the main characters. " - haha, well, that sure doesn't block a credible explanation, you only didn't get it. an excellent film-puzzle with some stunning Badalamenti music ("Love Theme" during the love scene and the very end)

A brilliant film. David Lynch's best. It may take a few watches to truly understand the plot, or the one time the identities of the main characters switch. However, it's all there. It just takes a patient mind to see it.

Too long &, at times, too pretentious, it nonetheless holds the viewer's attention. Pity it -deliberately- blocks a credible explanation for the plot by continually switching the identities of the main characters.
