With INLAND EMPIRE David Lynch--creator of such mind-bending works as ERASERHEAD and LOST HIGHWAY--delivers his most avant-garde abstract and impenetrable vision yet. A three-hour fever nightmare of a film INLAND EMPIRE takes the basic structure of Lynchs 2001 masterpiece MULHOLLAND DRIVE and spins it even further out of control. A blonde actress (Laura Dern) is preparing for her biggest role yet but when she finds herself falling for her co-star (Justin Theroux) she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that theyre shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the current film is a remake of a doomed Polish production 47 which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. And thats the only the beginning. Soon a seemingly endless onslaught of indescribably bizarre situations flash across the screen a sitcom featuring humans in bunny suits a parallel story set in a wintry Poland a houseful of dancing hookers screwdrivers in stomachs and much much more. By the time the films electrifying closing-credit sequence arrives even diehard Lynch fans will be gasping for air. Laura Derns multi-fractured performance is downright heroic. She gives the film the human grounding that it so desperately needs. Not for the fragile or timid INLAND EMPIRE is a full-blown assault to the senses.
