Masculinist Western Distractions

Westerns and Narrative Continuity

[As an aside, and in response to queries re the Death Drive and its absense in Lynch's Mulholland Drive as reviewed : the only appearance in the film is during the space between the two Blue Boxes, between Club Silencio and Rita's opening of the little Blue Box, this short gap being the movie's short-lived disciplined space between the Two Deaths: between the death of Diane/Betty's Real (her fantasmatic support of reality) and her Symbolic (her subsequent disconnection from quotidian reality). Alas, Lynch has yet to seriously confront this Space in any of his films ...].
