If you are a fan of fresh and challenging filmaking then make the effort to see Inland Empire. It is quite long and sometimes feels slow. However, it is a dimension altering experience.

Not since "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" has any Lynch fan expected to find easily digestible story resolutions in a Lynch movie, and "Inland Empire" is no exception. In fact, this is his most impenetrable film yet, and is why it should not be missed. The first thing you notice is that it's shot on consumer-grade video, which, with any other film maker, would be a signal to get out of the theater as quickly as possible. With Lynch, however, this portends something like a gathering storm. Indeed he keeps you glued to your seat with humor, foreboding, surreality, and, at times, terror (I literally screamed when "scary clown face" flashed on-screen.) You will undoubtedly leave the theater scratching your head, and any attempt at rational dissection is futile. See the movie, experience the movie, and let it seep into your subconscious--and maybe you, too, someday, will meet the rabbits.

Way out there with Mulhollund Dr. If you're not a Lynch fan, you might not enjoy it as much. But it's a trip, nonetheless.
