Inland Empire

David Lynch is a god and Inland Empire proves that he is the movie wizard in his latest installment which is quite surreal at the best of times and features a strange storyline that fans of Lynch will simply adore.

Elements of Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive all feature in Inland Empire from the strange camera angles, colours and dream sequences that will leave you in dismay after one watching, causing you to go back and re-watch.  It may not be confusing as other Lynch movies but to appreciate the attention to detail and clues, a second viewing is needed and you'll enjoy it even better a second time.

Inland Empire begins with trade mark David Lynch weirdness from Black and White to eventually colour as we are introduced to Nikki Grace (Laura Dern), an actress who has agreed to star in a new love story that is directed by the Kingsley Stewart and played masterfully by the talented Jeremy Irons. Justin Theroux also stars in the film and plays Devon Berk who is really one of the stars of the film and goes hand-in-hand with Lynch's screenplay.

As the plot is developed, we soon learn that the movie is actually a doomed remake that had its two stars murdered during the shoot as we are taken on a surreal rollercoaster wide of everything that is wrong and right with the world plus everything in between from fact to fiction, fantasy to reality, this is what movies should be about by drawing the viewer into the complexities of the plot and characters.

What more could you want from a movie from Polish Gypsies, curses, Hollywood starlets that makes this movie quite hard to categorize as it features romance, drama, crime, thrills and action. It's not for the mainstream light hearted but for those looking for a true surreal movie experience that at the end of the day is classic David Lynch.
