This past August, the BBC polled over 177 film critics around the globe to determine the best films of the 21st Century so far and David Lynch’s 2001 film “Mulholland Drive” topped the list. The oneiric film follows an aspiring actress (Naomi Watts) and an amnesiac woman (Laura Harring) as they journey through Los Angeles searching for clues amidst the dreams. Now, 16 years after the film’s premiere, “Mulholland Drive” will return to UK theaters in a new 4K restoration, supervised by Lynch himself.

This will be then be followed by a new special edition DVD, Blu-ray and EST release on May 1 through StudioCanal, to coincide with the return of Lynch’s acclaimed TV series “Twin Peaks.”

In 40 years, Lynch has released ten feature films, including the surrealist nightmare “Eraserhead,” the neo-noir “Blue Velvet” and the crime thriller “Wild at Heart.” He co-created, co-produced and co-directed the cult TV series “Twin Peaks” in 1991. The series will return for a limited run on Showtime sometime next year.
