A three-hour practical joke without a punchline, at once maddeningly obscure and infinitely boring.

You may find Lynch's experimentalism and willful obscurity to be the work of a poseur, ultimately pointless drivel. I can understand that, but I think you would be wrong.

A can't-miss experience and likely one of the year's very best films.

It's very possibly a work of genius. It could also be the most pretentious pile of garbage ever to make the big screen. But one thing it isn't is unoriginal. If nothing else, the man should be applauded for that.

The most Lynchian of all his films. It may also be the most maddening -- or the most brilliant. Or possibly both.

If Hollywood is where dreams go to die, Inland Empire is what it looks like when their lives flash before their eyes.

As opaque a movie as I've ever seen, yet riveting or hypnotic in a way that makes you feel not that you've seen it, but that you've dreamt it.
March 10, 2007
The great eroto-surrealist David Lynch has gone truffling for another imaginary orifice of pleasure, with results that are fascinating, sometimes very unwholesome, and always enjoyable.

"Inland Empire" represents Lynch at his unfettered best as well as his undisciplined worst.

Whether shattering or boring, you'll still have your eyes wide, wide open from begin to end.

A must-see for Lynch fans, this is unlike anything else you'll see this year and if you can make it through the lengthy running time the rewards are considerable. A masterpiece (probably).

A dazzling and exquisitely original riddle as told by an enigma, featuring a superb, multi-layered performance by Laura Dern.

The man's still a genius; he just needs to be more ruthless in the editing suite.

Inland Empire is self-indulgent and overlong and guaranteed to try the patience of all but the most devoted Lynch fan. But for all that I don't regret having spent three hours wallowing in its eccentricity.

Lynch and Dern collaborate on a stark impression of the duality of acting... that reveals Lynch's empathy and Dern's utter fearlessness.

Seduced by "blue tomorrows," entranced by dancers, you're watching too. What you're seeing is about you.

Inland Empire might just be the funniest movie of the year. Or maybe its the most horrifying. Trust me: It's difficult to tell.

Imagine what the cinema world would be like if more great directors threw caution to the wind and followed their artistic vision.

You say 'impenetrable', I say 'thrilling'; let's call the whole thing a near-masterpiece.

Lynch's brilliant and bizarre films have often come to us as a puzzle wrapped in an enigma, but his latest is enshrouded with two layers of 'who cares?'
