Inland Empire
2006
****
Director: David Lynch
Cast: Laura Dern, Jeremy Iorns, Justin Theroux, Grace Zabriskie, Karolina Gruszka

An incomprehensible but oddly hypnotic David Lynch mystery. On the surface it’s a story about a Hollywood actress who is signed to star in a remake of a cursed Polish film which was never finished. However, pretty soon we cannot tell the difference between the actress and her character. Add to this some clips from the original Polish film (or are we watching the lives of the Polish actors?) and a sitcom starring a family of rabbits, and your head should be spinning. The film is and feels long, but it’s a captivating experiment.
