Mulholland Drive, reciently voted the best film of the 21st century is David Lynch’s 2001 neo-noir mystery. Originally envisioned as a pilot for a TV series that wasn’t picked up ( the pilot for a start ). This then became this Twin Peaks-esque look at America.
Now 16 years after its original cinema release, as well as help from the director himself, a 4K digital restoration of the film has been made. Not only that, it’s going to be in UK cinemas in April 2017.
The film will see it’s UK premiere at Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, which takes place April 4-9th 2017.
Beautiful, bizarre and strangely addictive, the film begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of brunette amnesiac Rita and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty. Taking the viewer on a memorable neo-noir trip through Hollywood’s dark underbelly, Lynch dispenses with a conventional narrative in favour of a hallucinogenic assault on the senses that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
