Mary Queen of Scots

Desperately bad

(Edit) 28/12/2019

This film is utter claptrap. Many of the locations bear no resemblance to the places they are supposed to represent. "Carlisle" and "The Border" were especially hopeless. The 'plot' was awful and historically inaccurate. It might have survived historical inaccuracy if the plot had been interesting but it was just turgid. The PC elements were so jarringly out of place it was embarrassing. By far the worst film I have seen for some time. There are much better ways to spend 2 hours of your life, don't bother with this one.

Mulholland Drive

Confusing, thought-provoking and possibly brilliant

(Edit) 29/06/2017

I think the only way to make headway on this film is to watch it twice. It's really confusing the first time you watch it, and some of the sections (like the club silencio part) make no sense at all initially. Then I did a bit of reading (this website is useful http://www.mulholland-drive.net/home.htm) and watched it again - and it suddenly made an awful lot more sense. The biggest clue is a very short scene near the beginning of someone falling face down on a bed. Most of what follows is a dream sequence.

Some people seemed to have watched it over and over, and are extracting deeper meanings (or their own interpretations) as they do so, but for me twice was enough, although I may watch it again in a year's time.
