"The philosophers writing here know Mulholland Drive in consummate detail. Their engaging chapters focus on the key philosophical questions - of identity, freedom and cinematic romanticism - raised by Lynch’s hypnotic and ambiguous work. An excellent addition to an already fine series, this book is sure to interest philosophers of film, Lynch fans, and anyone who follows film art." - Deborah Knight, Queen’s University, Canada

"This fascinating collection brings the best sort of philosophically and theoretically informed speculation to bear on Lynch’s dazzling, disturbing, and profoundly rewarding masterpiece. The essays do not attempt to solve the many riddles of Mulholland Drive but allow Lynch’s finest film to shine forth in all its beauty, mystery, and monstrosity." - Calvin Thomas, Georgia State University, USA
