Dir. David Lynch. 2001, 146 mins. 35mm. With Naomi Watts, Laura Elena Harring, Justin Theroux. Lynch’s nightmarish yet wildly entertaining tale of that weird place known as Hollywood is like a fractured Sunset Boulevard. Watts gives a star-making performance as Betty Elms, a Pollyanna fresh off the bus who arrives in the city of dreams hoping to become an actress; Lynch then puts her—and us—through the looking glass for a noirish, hypersexual tale of revenge, lust, and shifting identities.
