INLAND EMPIRE

Writer-director David Lynch?s follow-up to 2001?s Mulholland Drive is a phantasmagorical cinematic experiment of the highest order. Again telling a story of an actress in an increasingly cold, alien, warped (read: Lynchian) version of Hollywood, this time Lynch returns to collaborate with Laura Dern (for the first time since 1990?s Wild at Heart) to spin a yarn about ?a woman in trouble? (or so say the trailers and posters). In reality (is there such a thing with Lynch anymore?), this is a powerful piece of digital filmmaking, unspooling over 3 hours to sometimes monotonous, often stunning, occasionally hilarious and, ultimately, brilliant results. It just about breaks the test tubes, but Lynch knows what he?s doing!
