Went to see Inland Empire tonight, which of course is David Lynch’s latest offering. What’s Inland Empire about? It’s about three hours long. Wukka-wukka.
I have no idea what the goddam movie was about. In comparison Mulholland Drive was “See Spot Run”. I don’t feel too bad about my lack of understanding, as Laura Dern herself said that when she went to the premiere SHE was hoping to figure out what the hell she’d been working on for two-and-a-half years. Lynch himself said that the movie is about “a woman in trouble”. Well, that helps, but not enough to lead to true enlightenment.
I guess I could Google “What the fuck + Inland Empire” and gather some insight. But it’s late. I should say that I “enjoyed” the movie, as Dern gave an outstanding performance in about 15 different roles/characters/manifestations. And it had Lynch’s usual disturbing imagery, one scene in particular will be giving me nightmares. Though hopefully not tonight. As I’m sleepy.
