Inland Empire (R)

Quicklook Rating★½

synopsis

A blonde actress is preparing for her biggest role yet, but when she finds herself falling for her co-star, she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they're shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the film is a remake of a doomed Polish production, "47," which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. And, that's only the beginning. Soon, a seemingly endless onslaught of indescribably bizarre situations flashes across the screen: a sitcom featuring humans in bunny suits, a parallel story set in a wintry Poland, a houseful of dancing streetwalkers, screwdrivers in stomachs, menacing Polish carnies, and much, much more.

MovieGoer Review

David Lynch’s wildly eccentric INLAND EMPIRE is one of the more challenging films you’ll ever endure, if you make it through the whole 179 minutes. It’s a self-indulgent swerve into a ravine of non-sequential, visceral madness
