The evening included music from Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Rhye, a musical showcase called “The Music of Twin Peaks,” led by Angelo Badalamenti and featuring Sky Ferreira and Julee Cruise; and singer Rebekah Del Rio — who appeared in “Mulholland Drive” — closing out the night with an a capella rendition “Llorando,” recreating her scene in the film.

Prior to being voted the best film of the 21st century in a BBC poll in August, “Mulholland Drive” claimed the number one spot on “Best of the Decade” polls from Film Comment, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA), Reverse Shot, and IndieWire.  Ironically, the film wasn’t originally conceived as a movie at all. The project started as a television pilot that Lynch shot in 1999 that was rejected by ABC. French producers Pierre Edelman and Alain Sarde put up additional funds for Lynch to finish the project as a feature film in 2000 through StudioCanal.

A fever dream of a movie set in Los Angeles, “Mulholland Drive” stars Laura Harring as young woman who becomes amnesic after a car wreck in the Hollywood hills and Naomi Watts as an aspiring actress who helps her search for clues to her life.
