Movie critics have voted 2001’s Mulholland Drive as the best film of the 21st Century.
The poll, conducted by BBC Culture, asked 177 film critics from 36 countries to name their favourite films of the last 16 years. Mulholland Drive, which stars Justin Theroux and Naomi Watts, earned David Lynch an Oscar nomination for best director.
The “neo-noir mystery film” was not one of the year’s highest grossing films at the box office but it did receive lots of praise from critics.
