Mulholland Dr., originally written and shot as a TV pilot in 1999, was finished as a feature and released at Cannes in 2001 where it won Lynch the Best Director prize.

A woman, ‘Rita’ (Laura Harring), emerges from a car wreck with nothing but a mysterious blue key and a purse full of cash. She meets Betty (Naomi Watts), an aspiring actress, and together they try to piece together her identity.

Spanning multiple intertwined storylines, this neo-noir thriller will keep you guessing until the curtain closes.

‘A bone fide masterpiece. An erotic, deeply unsettling, darkly comic journey through the subconscious city of night’ – Empire
