A: James Ellroy calls him
“the visual deus ex machina of what has become the most over-scrutinized city on earth.”
Q: Who is Ed Ruscha. Check out the Times Online for more on Ruscha and LA (and David Lynch!)
My theory is that, like Halloween, one is either a fan of David Lynch‘s films or not. I am. Recently, I watched Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” for the second time, and the first time since moving to the Los Angeles area. It was quite eye-opening.
As for the film itself, I understood more the second time around. “Mulholland Drive” simply cannot be viewed only once (unless you are in the category of unfortunate people who don’t like David Lynch films, in which case once is probably too much). But then I did some research, and found out some really interesting things. Since I rented and do not own the dvd, I did not know that Lynch inserted ten clues to watching the movie inside the back cover of the dvd box.
Get a clue, after the jump
