The City of Absurdity   Mulholland Drive
Soundtrack – Milan Entertainment Press Release


Angelo Badalementi Creates Ethereal Score for David Lynch's Newest Film; Music Includes Tracks from Sonny Boy Williamson, Roy Orbison and Linda Scott.

(Los Angeles, CA) September 27, 2001 - Milan Entertainment today announced the release of the original motion picture soundtrack, Mulholland Drive, a film by David Lynch, on October 9, 2001.

David Lynch's newest film Mulholland Drive, once again shows his mastery at utilizing music to drive home his creative vision. With longtime collaborator Angelo Badalementi, Lynch returns to his American film noir roots and the hauntingly beautiful soundscapes created by Badalementi that have come to define his work.

There are few collaborations so inexplicably intertwined as that of David Lynch and Angelo Badalementi. The music for Mulholland Drive is a perfectly woven tapestry of Badalementi's ethereal, ominous and sensual movements punctuated by songs like Roy Orbison's "Crying" sung a capella in Spanish by Rebekah Del Rio, "Bring It On Home" by Sonny Boy Williamson and "I've Told Every Little Star" sung by Linda Scott.

Mulholland Drive is a complex tale of suspense, set in the unreal universe of Los Angeles. In it writer/director Lynch explores the city's schizophrenic nature, an uneasy blend of innocence and corruption, love and loneliness, beauty and depravity. Lynch skillfully constructs a mesmerizing puzzle, propelling us through a mysterious labyrinth of sensual experiences until we arrive at the intersection where dreams and nightmares meet.

Mulholland Drive garnered the Special Jury Prize for Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival 2001.
