Mulholland Drive is copyright Assymetrical Productions, Canal+ and Universal Pictures.

"Mulholland Drive" was originally developed as a two-hour, $7 million pilot for a TV series in 1999, but was rejected by ABC and was reconceived by Lynch as a feature film with $7 million in French funding from CanalPlus. The extra money allowed for additional shooting and a new round of post-production.


A Love Story In The City Of Dreams
A woman in search of stardom.
A woman in search of herself - in the city of dreams.
A key to a mystery - lies somewhere on Mulholland Drive.


Mulholland Drive is a complex tale of suspense, set in the unreal universe of Los Angeles.

Along Mulholland Drive nothing is what it seems. In this complex tale of suspense, set in the unreal universe of Los Angeles, writer/director David Lynch explores the city's schizophrenic nature, an uneasy blend of innocence and corruption, love and loneliness, beauty and depravity. Lynch skillfully constructs a mesmerizing puzzle, propelling us through a mysterious labyrinth of sensual experiences until we arrive at the intersection where dreams and nightmares meet.
