2006, R, 172 min. Directed by David Lynch. Starring Laura Dern, Jeremy Irons, Justin Theroux, Harry Dean Stanton.
Not reviewed at press time. Lynch's latest mindfuck pits Nikki Grace (Dern) and Devon Berk (Theroux) against the characters they're playing in cursed fictional film On High in Blue Tomorrows. Said to be Lynch's most bizarre and complex yet – quite a statement, indeed – Inland Empire is the next (il)logical step following Lost Highway and Mulholland Dr. (See interview with Lynch, "The Serene Life," from the Jan. 19 issue at austinchronicle.com/gyrobase/Issue/story?oid=oid%3A437367.)
