Lynch's Hollywood is a grand old girl, but she's one with some very treacherous curves. To trace the contours of her sensuality, you need a camera as sensitive as a set of fingertips. Lynch's is.

Chicago Tribune
Like "Memento," Mulholland Drive is an amnesiac noir in the tradition that goes back to "Spellbound" and "Somewhere in the Night."

New Times (L.A.)
While this road may contain too many potholes -- and plotholes -- to sustain an even ride, there are moments of greatness scattered throughout to remind us why Lynch is vital and why the French think he's so nifty.

Baltimore Sun
A dizzying - sometimes frustrating - marvel of moviemaking instinct and ingenuity.

It just requires an open mind, a love of film and a willingness to dream.

Variety
A genuinely ominous and suspenseful thriller.
75
It will frustrate viewers who like stories to make instant sense, but fans of provocative puzzles will have mind-teasing fun.

No classic like "The Big Sleep," another famously impossible-to-follow Los Angeles thriller. But for those willing to hang on for dear life, Lynch makes it worth their while.
75
Exhilarating not only for its dreamlike images and fierce, frequently reckless imagination but also for the fact that it got made (and released) at all.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
As riveting as it may be, his film is a total shaggy-dog story.
