this film is pretty much universally considered great and one of the greatest films of the 00's

this is one i have never seen. dont really know why because i have seen thousands of movies.

what are your opinions on this?

should i take the plunge after all these years?
will it hold up well?

will it be dated to the point of being cheese?

Absolutely worth it. In fact, I just watched it again a couple of days ago, haven't for 2 or 3 years. One of my favorite Lynch movies.

Edit to add: Although, it is a Lynch movie, you may have to watch it again in a week to get what you missed the first time.

If you liked Blue Velvet, Lost Highway or Twin Peaks you will like this flick. It is pure Lynch goodness.

one of the reasons i did not watch it is i did not like twin peaks at all.
lost highway and eraserhead were the # though

Incredibly weird film.

I have seen it several times and still find it confusing.

But the atmosphere of it is amazing.

And it has one of my top scariest moments of all time in a film.

No gore or anything like that.

Just a haunting build up and resolution to an unnerving moment

I think it holds up well and is worth the watch!

I'd still recommend watching it. It has a lot of lost highway aspects. Dreams are really big in Mulholland Drive.

I rented it back in the day. I almost fell asleep and understood nothing of anything I had just seen. True story.

I'm reasonably certain that the first and only time I watched Mulholland Drive, I passed through a portal between two worlds.

The old world was comfortable, predictable, but in hindsight I have to say that nothing ever really happened and I was just passing time. The new world was chaotic at first and it took a while to fit in, plus there's this whole Berenstain vs. Berenstein thing, but I have gotten the hang of it, and sometimes I even like it here.

There's no telling if your experience will be the same. If you're bored I say give it a chance.

Mulholland Drive NOT Mulholland Dr. Remember that.

the first hour or so, in which [spoilers] a country girl goes to LA and gets involved with stuff, is terrific and dreamy.

the last half hour or so is almost from a different movie.

I read somewhere this was supposed to be a miniseries / pilot. looks like he did the first part and then skipped the middle and went straight to the end.

definitely worth watching (imho), just don't expect a linear conclusion.

one of the great visuals of all time imho

From the insert I got with the DVD (no spoilers):

David Lynch's 10 clues to unlocking this thriller:

1. Pay particular attention inn the beginning of the film: at least 2 clues are revealed before the credits
2. Notice appearances of the red lampshade
3. Can you hear the title of the film that Adam Kesher is auditioning actresses for? Is it mentioned again?
4. An accident is a terrible event... Notice the location of the accident
5. Who gives a key and why?
6. Notice the robe, the ashtray, the coffee cup
7. what is felt, realised and gathered at the club Silencio?
8. Did talent alone help Camilla?
9. Note the occurrences surrounding the man behind Winkies
10 Where is aunt Ruth?

Save your time. It's boring, confusing, and *Spoiler Alert* ends up being a delusion within a delusion.
Most guys just like it for the lesbian parts.

Not an easy question to answer. Both require multiple viewings to fully grasp. I also looked up a lot about both flicks on the interwebs. Overall I would say Mulholland is more mind bending, only by a smidgen though.

Since you liked Donnie Darko, did you watch Southland Tales? It's by the same director and I recommend it.

One of Lynch's best films.
It gets better and more interesting each time I watch it.
You can even figure it out, eventually.

donnie darko is childs play in comparison

just watch, and you'll either bitch about it afterwards or watch it a 2nd time
