Director David Lynch's films - which include Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive - are famously strange. But even by Lynch's own standards, Inland Empire is massively unhinged. The plot (as much as there is one) might or might or not have something to do with a paranoid actress, a murder and some Eastern European gypsies in suburban Los Angeles. While most of Lynch's other films are conventionally beautiful to look at, Inland Empire is filmed in fuzzy digital video, which just adds to the feeling of being trapped in someone's nightmare. A truly extreme and fascinating movie-watching experience.
Two young women with a mysterious connection and vivid imaginations act out stories, but we are never sure where the story ends and reality begins.
