David Lynch turned 74 years old today, and Netflix celebrated the occasion with a new 17-minute short film from the Twin Peaks director. Lynch also stars in the film alongside a capuchin monkey!

The new short film is titled What Did Jack Do?, and it is the first new content from Lynch since his Twin Peaks: The Return aired on Showtime in 2017. The short features Lynch as director and star. Keeping with the director's unconventional style, in the film Lynch plays a homicide detective who is interrogating a monkey that may have committed a murder.

What Did Jack Do? was filmed back in 2016, but it was reportedly only shown at a few of David Lynch's festival screenings since then. Netflix has come through for Lynch fans and added the film to its streaming service. The now 74 year old filmmaker hasn't released a feature film since Inland Empire came out in 2006, but fans rejoiced at Lynch's return to network television for Twin Peaks: The Return in 2017. This was a limited series follow-up to the first two seasons of Twin Peaks from the early 1990s.
