Top Ten Films About MOVIES

1. Mulholland Drive (dir: David Lynch, 2001)

You could argue that Lynch’s seductive mind-melt is more about dreams (or dream logic) than movies, but to that, I say silencio—the brilliance of this rejected/reconstructed TV pilot lies in how it fearlessly explores connections between dreams and movies, and all the possibilities within them. Oh, and don't miss the spectacular scene where Watts (and her character) proves she can really act.

Betty Elms (Naomi Watts): It'll be just like in the movies—pretending to be somebody else.

2. Ed Wood (Tim Burton, 1994)
3. Singin’ In The Rain (Stanley Donen, 1952)
4. Goodbye Dragon Inn (Tsai Ming-Liang, 2003)
5. Los Angeles Plays Itself (Thom Anderson, 2003)
6. Boogie Nights (Paul Thomas Anderson, 1997)
7. American Movie (Chris Smith, 1999)
8. Living in Oblivion (Tom DiCillo, 1995)
9. Sunset Boulevard (Billy Wilder, 1950)
10. Gods and Monsters (Bill Condon, 1998)
