both films contain tangled identities
Perfect Blue is very dream like, similar to MD.
both films deal with a character / personality switch (PB less so than MD, but still towards the end)
both PB and MD deal with a woman struggling to find success and recognition in acting which leads to her own mental unraveling / psychosis

it's not just cause there's a cowboy in MULHOLLAND DRIVE. It's the darn plot and I'm a little creeped out about this.It's about small town guy who has been through sexual abuse moving to New York with big dreams to make it big as a hustler. Turns out he is probably gay. Meets a bum and feels like he needs to take care of the bum. I'm thinking it's all just coincidence, but it's odd and creepy nonetheless.
