I didn't say that Michael died. In truth, I'm not entirely sure whether he does or not.
I think the last 20 minutes of Mulholland Dr kind of on its own terms as a nutso descent into hell, but the lack of non-abstract connection to everything before it makes it feel a bit like.... a halfassed, rushed series finale, maybe? Yeah, yeah, the beginning was a dream. I don't feel like debating this movie with you.
