It certainly stirs you up. Part of the fun of any Lynch movie is the analysis afterward; both yours and the interpretations of others, and there is no end to the analysis that has been done to Mulholland Dr.

With all the talk of Mulholland Drive, I want to give some mention too to Inland Empire. That movie is even more out there and filled with memorable moments. Watching that in the final hours of New Year's Eve last year was the best non-theatre movie watching experience I have ever had.

I've been toying around with watching that one, but it's always at about 2 in the morning and 3 hrs long, so it never happens. Sooner or later. (sooner)

Hardly ever go to the movies anymore, so I'm pretty weak in this decade. But I had HBO and the other movie channels for a while, so I saw a few. Enough that I really liked to make a list anyways.

There Will Be Blood - Anderson 07
The Pianist - Polanski 02
O Brother, Where Art Thou - Coens 00
Assassination of Jesse James - Dominik 07
Lord of the Rings - Jackson - As someone else mentioned, this is one film to me
Memento - Nolan 00
Letters From Iwo Jima - Eastwood 06
Best In Show - Guest 00
The Mexican - Verbinski 01
The Diving Bell & the Butterfly - Schnabel 07

I had such a hard time picking between Best In Show and A Mighty Wind for Guest and then neither ended up making my list

Inland Empire is just shy of being as great as Mulholland Drive in my most humble of opinions. Very different kind of experience though, despite the superficial similarities.

Frankly I don't see many new movies because I know I'll be annoyed by:

1) Lousy CGI
2) The draining of all colors not teal or orange from the film.
Into The Abyss: Teal and Orange - Hollywood, Please Stop the Madness
3) The overuse of shakycam.
4) Grating musical scores and cues. (RIP Herrmann, Goldsmith and Mancini)

OK, that's my grumpy old man shpiel about the state of the movie industry.

The CG point is really the only one of those that's an especially contemporary issue.

1. Inglorious Basterds - Tarantino - 09
2. Pan's Labyrinth - Del Toro - 06
3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Cuaron - 04
4. Gangs of New York - Scorsese - 02
5. Brokeback Mountain - Lee - 05
6. Sin City - Rodriguez/Miller - 05
7. Thirteen - Hardwicke - 03
8. Cold Mountain - Minghella - 03
9. V for Vendetta - McTeigue - 06
10. Casino Royale - Campbell - 06

Whooooo! That was difficult. I have a number of honorable mentions that were right on the cusp. Actually, this would probably be the easiest decade for me to do a top 20 or 25. I think it's my favorite decade of film, after going through all of these threads.
