Lynch’s last film to date is an epic, surreal and visually seductive mystery involving “a woman in trouble,” featuring a tour-de-force performance by Laura Dern that must be seen to be believed.

Inland Empire is interchangeably terrifying, maddening, shockingly hilarious and perversely exciting, and that’s just to those who end up disliking it.” – Aaron Hillis, Premiere

In Inland Empire, frequent Lynch star Dern (Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart) plays actress Nikki Grace, who is preparing for her biggest role yet – a juicy character named Susan Blue, who happens to be a wanton, white trash adulteress. But when the married Nikki finds herself falling for her co-star, Devon (Justin Theroux, Mulholland Drive), she realizes that her life is beginning to dangerously mimic the fictional film they’re shooting. Adding to her confusion and her ever-loosening grip on reality is the revelation that the film they’re working on is a remake of a doomed Polish production called “47,” which was never completed because its stars were mysteriously murdered. 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.  Lynch’s first feature to be shot entirely on video, Inland Empire has the sinister, frightening look and feel of a bootlegged, experimental snuff movie, and Dern’s astonishing portrayal of Nikki/Sue, propelled by an ever-increasing paranoia amped up to often hysterical proportions , is utterly unforgettable. Co-starring a colorful gallery of former and first-time Lynch performers, including Jeremy Irons, Harry Dean Stanton, Diane Ladd, William H. Macy, Julie Ormond and Grace Zabriskie. (Dir. by David Lynch, 2006, USA, 180 mins., Rated R)
