David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive returning to UK cinemas with new 4K restoration

MDCP

David Lynch is a cinematic master of the unusual and surreal and so it’s with great personal interest that we’ll soon get to see a 4K version of the visually exceptional Mulholland Dr. as it’s undergone a restoration that’s been supervised by the man himself.

ICO and StudioCanal have teamed up to re-release the classic in UK cinemas on April 14th, 2017 and it’ll be followed by a new special edition DVD, Blu-ray and digital release on May 1st 2017. This, in turn, coincides with the hotly anticipated return of Lynch’s cult TV show Twin Peaks which is highly anticipated and surely contains an absolute stellar cast from across the generations.

Here’s a little more insight on the movie, for those wanting to know more…

Recently voted the best film of the 21st Century in a BBC Culture poll, MULHOLLAND DRIVE is essential viewing by one of the masters of contemporary American cinema. David Lynch’s scary and seductive vision of Hollywood is a true masterpiece, weaving together a tale of love, jealousy, and revenge like no other.

Beautiful, bizarre and strangely addictive, the film begins as a botched hit results in the meeting of brunette amnesiac Rita (Laura Harring) and blonde would-be Hollywood actress Betty (Naomi Watts). 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.

The new version of Mulholland Drive will receive its UK premiere at Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival, which takes place April 4th- 9th 2017. Special features for the DVD and Blu-ray release will also be announced soon and while we’re here it gives me a perfect opportunity to share this great print by Sam Bosma
