Wait; did you try to get her to watch Mulholland Drive? I still only have a vague idea what that was about, I just feigned certainty to drive my friends nuts. Lynch's budget getting snipped, the "cowboy " character, the flip of the actresses toward the end, and the theater scene are what I base my theory on. But I think the original idea was different, and they'd already got really good scenes, like the one with the homeless thing behind the dumpster and the one with the director getting cheated on by a really "nice guy" type of jerk, so they just left those in for fun. But yea, movies like that infuriate some people.
