SEPARATED AT BIRTH (#8) : "CONTEMPT" AND "MULHOLLAND DRIVE"

I watched Contempt again last night, and, midway through, started feeling some similarities between it and Mulholland Drive...

Briget Bardot's wig:



Laura Harring's (on your right) wig:


The shadow dancing in Contempt:


The shadow dancing in Mulholland Drive:

Three other, more obvious, similarities:

1. Both films end with the word "silencio" spoken.

2. Both films have a fractured love story at the center.

3. Both films are about Hollywood.

However, like most of my self-excited revelations... somebody else got there before me.

From the Lost on Mulholland Drive web site:

*Camille (in Contempt) gets into an early 60's convertible with a film producer who makes a pass at her - Camilla (in Mulholland Drive) gets into an 40's convertible with a film director who kisses her.

*Contempt is a French film, partly made by American money - Mulholland Dr. is an American film, partly made by French money.

*The Contempt poster is reminiscent of Camilla's photo résumé.

*Camille wraps herself in large red towel after her bath just as Rita does after her shower.

*Both, Camilla and Camille get into a near-to-impossible car crash.

So... if you get bored this Easter weekend, pop in both films and see for yourself... or, don't see, and laugh me off as a idiot with too much time on his hands!

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!
