Mulholland Dr.: challenging the "classical" interpretation
« on: April 23, 2017, 04:46:57 PM »
There are many different opinions and interpretations of MD, still there seems to be some sort of agreement of sorts called the classical interpretation. I do not go along with that explanantion; it doesn't make sense to me. I have a couple of questions regarding issues I believe this classical approach doesn't answer satisfactory.

1. If Diane had actually a person named Camilla killed and she is upset about thism, than why in her moment of absolute despair does she see this elderly couple? Why is the image of this elderly couple locked away in the blue box? What's their importance?

2. What relevance do all the sexual connotations have within this classical approach?

3. What significance does the kiss between Camilla and blonde Camilla have? IF the explanation of Diane's despair is the murder of her loved one than why is she so upset about this kiss? In the narrative she already lost Camilla to Adam so what's the point of being upset?

There are other poignont problems with the classical approach the way I see it, but for the discussion it's perhaps better to take it one question at a time. I hope people are interested in debating this.
