Lynch parks “Mulholland Drive” at Cannes

Director David Lynch has reedited the pilot episode of Mulholland Drive, which ABC had rejected as “too dark,” into a feature film that was presented Wednesday night at the Cannes Film Festival. Lynch told reporters Thursday: “ABC never told me how they felt about it,” Lynch says. “So, I had to find out from third parties that they hated it. But, I suppose things happen for a reason, and now, I really feel blessed about the way things worked out.” Friday’s New York Post said that Lynch is “almost assured” of landing a distribution deal in Europe.
