I found some useful discussion going on in the news groups.
try doing a google groups search in
alt.movies.david-lynch

There’s a Chap called trichome who really seams to know his shit, he has a lot of cool ideas. Try searching his name as well.

I do find over analysis takes a lot of the fun out of the film, but you do need to look a bit deeper in MD, there are several layers to this.
"There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning. And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn’t need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave.
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high - water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." - Hunter S. Thompson.

Everybody calm down.  The Pastor explained it so much more succinctly than anyone else had done up to that point, so the clarity was welcome.  

Thank you Pastor.  Now I'm off to watch Mulholland again--through different eyes..... :-D

mulholland drive wasnt made for people to use other peoples explanaitons. the movie is made for you and your consience or whatever to make up the sence as you see it. only you. going in with such an over simplyfied explanation from another viewer will ruin half of the experience.

as for the spoilers thing, i can only say that such thing as to give a spoiler warning is pretty much the only fair thing to do and it takes about one second. and maybe the title 'mulholland drive explanations' was ment in another way than just giving the intire plot away in one sentence. if you had read the thirty repliers previous you, then you might have understood.

Hey Marlowe.  Please, shut up.  I get the movie now.  The Good Pastor clarified some shit for me. So please, enough with the high-falootin conceptual shit. Thanks dude. :P

Seriously, if Lynch wanted Mulholland Drive to be some sort of conceptual shit he would have made the true meaning unclear to where many people can interpret it in many different ways (because it would have been a work of art) but it isn't so SHUT UP

what the fuck? excactly how did i offend you people? i think telling me to shut up is the lamest thing to do. if any of you agressive morans read my post one more time you might get what im saying here:

i dont give a rats ass if you guys want the experience ruined. thats fine. all im asking is for you to just give a fucking spoiler warning before you submit a goddamn post of such a crusial importance. this movie is all about trusting your senses.

by the way, it's spelled "moron"
