Lynch pins crix picks

'Mulholland Dr.' the best film of the last decade

“Mulholland Dr.” continues to add luster to its reputation: David Lynch’s 2001 thriller has been named best film of the decade in critics’ polls conducted by Film Comment, Indiewire, the Village Voice/LA Weekly, Cahiers du Cinema and now the Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. (of which this writer is a member).

While LAFCA is the first official crix group to jump into the end-of-decade fray (see chart below), many of the org’s top choices run counter to its own awards history. “Mulholland Dr.” lost the group’s pic prize in 2001 to “In the Bedroom,” while “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” got no love in 2004. Either the L.A. critics got sucked into Lynch’s blue box, or it’s proof that you can’t trust a critic.

2. “There Will Be Blood” (Paul Thomas Anderson)
3. “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (Michel Gondry)
