If you enjoy the “Weird-In-A-Good-Way” works of David Lynch (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) you might be unaware of his spectacular spin-off to MULHOLLAND DRIVE. Another overwhelmingly surreal nightmare dragged out of Lynch’s mind and translated to the screen, INLAND EMPIRE is a work of cinematic art. Just imagine one of the Monty Python guys having the most horrific Cheese Dream of their life. You’ll never look at Rabbits or Kylie Minogue’s Locomotion the same way again. Laura Dern gives the performance of her career. Justin Theroux reprises his role as the Director from MULHOLLAND DRIVE, although this time he’s in front of the camera whilst veteran actors Jeremy Irons and Harry Dean Stanton portray the Director and Producer. Naomi Watts lends her voice to the proceedings and there are some familiar faces throughout the end credits. The only thing wrong with this masterpiece is that it goes for 3 hours, but if you’re anything like me, you won’t want it to end.
Laura Dern stars as Nikki, an actress signed to star in a new movie – an adulterous love story – directed by Kingsley (Jeremy Irons) and co-starring the womanising Devon (Justin Theroux). But the film is actually the cursed remake of a project that was abandoned after its two leads were murdered, and so Nikki and Devon find themselves struggling to distinguish between fantasy and reality as their worlds collapse around them in a bizarre sequence of events. ‘Inland Empire’ combines striking, nightmarish imagery to perpetuate Lynch’s unique world view.
