Mulholland Dr. (2001)
Sorry people, but 6 points...
Yeah it's unique, thrilling and also dramatic. Scenes, characters and direction was very original. Everything that you seek in a movie, BUT it is also very confusing for the simple audience. For example Memento is also confusing, but you'll figure out whats going on if you observe carefully. In Mulholland dr observing has no point if you don't know the fact, that 2 hours of the movie is just Diane's dream. Even if the turning point was meant to be not obvious, it's still impossible to crack, because it consists daydreaming and other confusing scenes and overall it ruined the "gag-line". It's like getting a present, but the present turns out to be a level 6 puzzle and i wouldn't call that entertaining. Also about those nude lesbian scenes - one shocking lesbian scene is enough.
Dark City (1998)
I have to admit that it's a masterpiece in its own way. I gave it 7 points (9 points for the idea and 5 points for realization). Overall picture is similar to matrix, because it questions our existence and views our population as puppets of some other beings. Also the main character is the chosen one who can bend the present reality like Neo from matrix. Similarity with matrix put aside, the idea is original and deserves at least 9 points, because it leaves a unique kind of emptiness after you've seen the movie. Now, i'll explain why i gave five points for realization. Direction was fine, nothing special and also nothing disastrous, but the actors weren't that good, somehow the main character's emotions felt fake and didn't pass the confusion that an amnesiac should have. Also Kiefer overacted the hunchback professor with the stuttering, but that is only my opinion - that a perfect movie should have everything in place. Although that movie had some misplaced elements it is quite close to perfection.
