Mulholland Drive - by David Lynch

Rebekah Del Rio - Llorando (1994)

This scene is the essence of cinema. The guy says a million times that there is no band and that it's all an illusion and yet we always get lost in the visceral beauty of Rebekah del Rio's performance and somehow feel connected to our mournful spectators. When we watch a movie we know that it's just projected light, sets and actors and yet we lose ourselves in the illusion because it's intoxicating. It's the power of cinema. If I were a film professor I would show this scene then dismiss class.
