Inland Empire Reviews
January 15, 2015
Easily one of Lynchs most intriguing and terryfying films, Inland Empire relies heavily on its surrealistic imagery and premise, making it a movie that while hard to follow, is still pretty haunting and interesting for the sake of the dream-like, almost nightmerish, moments it can create, and with great acting and characters, it is a film that every Lynch fan would love to watch over and over only for the sake of decrypting its deepest meanings.

As dense as a steel ball bearing.

Ok, Twin Peaks was great, but enough is enough. Post Twin Peaks Lynch is a hack. We get it, David, hand held close up camcorder shots and camera filters that feel like a 90s after school special, or at best a high budget porno, is your signature film style. You're so surreal and edgy; too bad your movies are aesthetically repulsive and as boring as watching paint do paint shit.

David Lynch was caught in its web.
In other words, Lynch making ... Lynch.
A solipsism that only the most pseudo intellectual fans can truly love.
Tarantino doing Tarantino in his "Death Proof" or Scorsese making Scorsese in his "Wolf of wall street".
The greatest Lynch's films feature a curse that resembles much what
the illustrious music critic Ricardo Salo once said about the first two discs of PERE UBU: "unrepeatable music, beauty in the chaos that its authors will never approach but only imitate a very pale form"
I hope I'm wrong, I hope that Lynch is capable of reinventing himself...we'll see.
Pay attention to all different genres of cinema and cinematic styles that Lynch has ever experienced. Amazing!
But ... truth be told, this "inland empire" and "death proof" films are "dead end"
(both formal and in terms of history) ...
they bring nothing new and the old is spent itself ...
If you want to see David Lynch in his best i advise "Eraserhead", "Blue Velve" or "Wild at Hear"

Laura Dern gives a wild tour de force as an actress who loses herself in a role. Literally. Full of the usual Lynch touches. However, not recommended as your first Lynch film or for people whom are easily confused.

In typical David Lynch style, this tangle of different inter-connecting timelines mixed with some truly creepy and disturbing material induces the desired effect on the audience. On a personal level, this is the one movie that has truly frightened and disturbed me - never before have I been so afraid of rabbits.

Paura. Capire un cazzo e paurissima per 180 minuti di fila.

This film can very well be the most challenging film to understand ever produced! Its one hundred and eighty minutes of pure Symbolism,Meaning and confusion.Even if you are a hardcore Lynch fan (like me) you will still struggle to find the meaning of this film.But ofcourse that is not the downside of the movie, that is what makes it a masterpiece!.The effort David Lynch must have gone through to bring such a film to life will forever puzzle me.After multiple viewings and some research I now understand the basic concept behind it but not fully,only Lynch will understand its meaning fully.Rest assured this film is Lynch's ultimate challenge for his fans and seeing it might disturb,shock,glorify,entertain or even mystify his viewers.

I gave up after 2 hours. This movie is basically a big mind-fuck, but I guess it's a very successful one if that was the purpose of the movie.

Nice performances and Lynch is always great directing but the story felt boring to me

I have no idea what I just watched. Laura Dern was fantastic though.

This entire film felt like a schizophrenic nightmare, and I loved it. Classic Lynch that requires multiple watches.

You'll either love it or hate it.

Thought provoking and surprisingly accessible, except for the 3 hour length (which, I admit, was maybe justifiable.)

it felt too artificial for me. maybe because it was done ON A FREAKING FLIP CAM SO IT LOOKS LIKE A FREAKING STUDENT PROJECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesus, David, get a real producer and a real budget and a REAL camera!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess it's the most-densely woven film by Lynch which is hard to crack

A complete mindfuck, even by Lynch's standards.

I'm a fan of David Lynch and his 'strange' movies, even Eraserhead, but this movie makes NO sense!

HYPNOTIC! I will have to watch it at least 5 more times to understand it however.
