SYMPTOMS OF VERTIGO
“La Jetee” / MULHOLLAND DR.

“La Jetee” (1964, New Yorker Films, 30 min. Dir. Chris Marker) Chris Marker’s most famous film (and his only work of pure fiction) is an agonizing cry of love to a world gone by, the story of a man drawn through time by the image of a woman standing on the jetty at Orly Airport. A candidate for one of the greatest films ever made; certainly, it’s the most romantic.

MULHOLLAND DR.
2001, Universal, 147 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

In David Lynch's maniacal, notorious thriller, amnesia-suffering Rita (Laura Harring), who barely escapes murder on winding, hilly Mulholland Drive, makes her way down to Hollywood, where she sneaks into the apartment of bright-eyed aspiring actress Betty (Naomi Watts). When the two women encounter each other and try to piece together what happened to Rita, their descent into the freshly warped and hypnotically nightmarish Lynchian rabbit hole ensues. A lethal blue box, an unlucky director named Adam Kesher and a neon-glowing nightclub called Silencio are only the tip of the iceberg in this kinkily off-kilter neo-noir.
