I didn't see Mulholland Falls either.

Maybe at some point I will, but I'm not really a Nick Nolte fan.  I can't even stand to look at him anymore.  Don't like Chris Penn much either, or Andrew McCarthy.  Seems Chazz Palminteri and John Malkovich are the movie's saving graces.

Very True. But this was old Nolte, before we knew all that stuff. It's also old Malkovich come to think of it.  Anyway because of the two ladies in the film, Melanie Griffith and Jennifer G.,it is technically a film noir with strange Los Angeles places to rendevous with unusual sexual suggestion. And the four federal men taking midnight rides up Mulholland just for the sport of it.   It turns out to be an unforgetable film, with you wondering how did they manage to crowd so much information into it.   

Besides, I thought it was your wife who liked Mulholland but then I had no idea it had even been a series.  This one is just so full of intrigue.

Mulholland Drive, not Falls, and Twin Peaks, the series.  She's become a Lynchian, for better and for worse.

On a different note, I see Criterion is coming out with new releases of Stranger than Paradise and Night on Earth on DVD.  Loved Stranger than Paradise,

Mad, I agree on Mul. Falls -- an intriguing radioactive noir. 

As for Jbot --

"Mullholland [Drive] is more of a film for the pencil-necked geeks...."

Then call me a Number Two!  I think one can take a different approach than the Cinema/Not Cinema analytic, i.e. just let a Lynch film wash over you and see what coalesces in your mind.  Demystification is for babies.

Forgot Major League and Major League II - although the baseball stadium they shot in was Milwaukee's - and The Oh in Ohio.

But American Splendor and Stranger Than Paradise are probably the definitive Cleveland movies.
