Mulholland Dr. is a 2001 Academy Award-nominated genre-defying film written and directed by David Lynch. It stars Naomi Watts, Laura Harring and Justin Theroux.

The plot is structured around an aspiring actress named Betty Elms (Watts), who befriends an amnesiac (Harring) whom she finds hiding in her aunt's apartment when she arrives in Los Angeles, California. The film includes several other seemingly unrelated vignettes, which eventually connect in various ways, as well as other surreal scenes and images which are all involved in the cryptic narrative.

Strongly acclaimed by many critics, but only a moderate box-office success, the film has achieved the status of a cult classic.
