David Lynch is celebrating his 74th birthday in a slightly unusual way.
On Monday, the acclaimed director and photographer released a short film on Netflix in which he interrogates a talking monkey. Yup, you read that right. The black-and-white, 17-minute-long film is titled What Did Jack Do? and is directed and written by Lynch, who also stars as a homicide detective who gets into it with “a tormented monkey.” The short film employs Lynch’s signature surrealism.
Whether this Netflix short is the first in a line of similar projects from the director is not yet known. What Did Jack Do? is available to stream now.
