Inland Empire

Wow, what a horrid, unwatchable mess. I know David Lynch is supposed to be this brilliant director, but this film is nonsense. I can't believe people like this stuff. There were a few minutes early on when I thought this might actually gel, but then the actress, played by Laura Dern, starts drifting in and out of reality, and the movie drifts further and further into a morass of images. This is one of those movies film students and critics love, but the rest of us are left wishing we hadn't wasted our time. Yuck. No stars.
