Favorite Scenes №17: Mulholland Drive

David Lynch made Mulholland Drive in 2001. It was the middle film in a Los Angeles trilogy that also included Lost Highway and Inland Empire. The espresso scene In Mulholland Drive is not integral to the film but it is a wonderfully crafted piece of cinema. One can never be completely sure when it comes to Lynch but the espresso scene seems to be part of a fantasy. It’s a day-dreamed rationalization by an actress who didn’t get a part in the film she felt she deserved. She imagines that the director wanted to choose her but was forced by a Mafia Don to choose someone else.
