David Lynch's Mulholland Drive is a dizzying - sometimes frustrating - marvel of moviemaking instinct and ingenuity. In this expansion of an aborted TV pilot, Lynch succeeds where Fellini didn't in his late work: He creates a phantasmagoric landscape, fills it with eccentric, visually striking characters and uses them to generate compelling conflicts and emotions. Lynch's "dream place" is made up of timeworn pockets of L.A., from a Hollywood Babylon apartment complex to a stucco studio peopled by has-beens and never-weres.

"The Straight Story" starts out like any David Lynch film, with an aerial shot of a pretty little Midwestern town, its neat streets, tidy yards and picket fences barely belying the depravity, angst and sexual perversity that seethe underneath. Lynch's fans will brace themselves for the inevitable shock to come, but the real shock here is that the wholesome surface is exactly what it seems.A radical goodness suffuses "The Straight Story," a populist belief in the quiet heroism of courtly decency so strong that you leave the theater stunned.

Only David Lynch could make the incomprehensible so compelling. His latest film, the almost-three-hour-long Inland Empire, proudly defies description, summation, even categorization. Audiences may not know why they feel threatened, or comforted, or disturbed, or enlightened, or befuddled, but they will experience all those feelings just the same. Inland Empire (518 Media) Starring Laura Dern. Written and directed by David Lynch. Rated R. Time 172 minutes.

NEW YORK - If the nation's film critics prevail, Mulholland Drive will nab the Oscar in April for best picture. During a meeting Saturday, David Lynch's erotic thriller edged out Robert Altman's murder mystery/comedy of manners, Gosford Park, as the top film of the year, by 30 votes to 28. The Tolkien epic Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was a distant third, with 19 votes. The meeting was dedicated to the memory of Pauline Kael, longtime critic for The New Yorker and a founder of the National Society of Film Critics.

It's neither the best of times nor the worst of times in network television. The new season doesn't have any shows of groundbreaking, can't-miss quality, but it is also mercifully nearly free of total clunkers as the network executives seem to have finally figured out that trotting out the same old formulas every fall just drives people to their tape rental stores. A few highlights:* CBS broadcasts "Field of Dreams" Tuesday. This is the first movie to show up from a package that cost CBS a lot of money.

In thrillers from Carrie (1976) and Dressed to Kill (1980) to Snake Eyes (1998) and Femme Fatale, which opened in Baltimore Wednesday, director Brian De Palma has taken Carl Jung's definition of movies as his credo. "The cinema," Jung wrote, "makes it possible to experience without danger all the excitement, passion and desirousness which must be repressed in a humanitarian ordering of life." In Femme Fatale, De Palma reaches new peaks of "excitement, passion and desirousness." And he does so while analyzing the femme fatale -- the woman who seduces and kills -- with all the relish of Jung taking apart a favorite archetype.

In the year just ended, an actor's strike was averted, a big green ogre ruled the box office, Julia Roberts proved the Oscars' only sure thing, Tom and Nicole split up (suggesting that maybe the lack of heat generated in Eyes Wide Shut wasn't all Kubrick's fault) and Pearl Harbor lived down to expectations (while Lord of the Rings soared above same). Oh yeah, and a raft of good movies were released; picking the 10 best of 2001 proved far more difficult than picking the 10 best of 2000.

In a New Yorker article two years ago, David Lynch, director of personal movie classics like The Elephant Man and Blue Velvet, made clear that when he tried to develop Mulholland Drive as a television series, he had every intention of fleshing out a dreamscape of Los Angeles in the form of episodic television. After all, he'd won his biggest audiences to date with the mother of all cutting-edge TV series, Twin Peaks. The prospect of doing another one excited him with its expansiveness and ABC with its glimmer of Twin Peaks-y heat.

It's not surprising that Harold Pinter discovered Elizabeth Bowen's novel "The Heat of the Day," as it's a perfect setting for one of the playwright's excursions into the meaning of the language that forms the primary substance of a relationship.What is surprising is that Alfred Hitchcock never made a film of this tense psychological drama which Bowen published in 1949.Adapted by Pinter for the small screen, this two-hour movie made by England's Granada Television kicks of the 20th season of Masterpiece Theatre Sunday night at 9 o'clock on Maryland Public Television, channels 22 and 67.It's 1941 in London.
