Dir. David Lynch. 2006, 180 mins. Digital projection. With Laura Dern, Jeremy Irons, Harry Dean Stanton, Julia Ormond. An actress plunges into Hollywood’s seedy underbelly, attempting her comeback in a cursed production. Inland Empire is Lynch’s most surreal and formally audacious feature film since Eraserhead. Written scene by scene during the shooting process, it seems to spring directly from its director’s subconscious. His expressive use of crude digital-video technology lends the film an uncanny veneer of melodrama, exposing the visual lies inherent in the filmmaking art.
