Let's get this out of the way right here, right now: I'm not a huge David Lynch fan. While I feel the man is a phenomenal artist who creates sensational visuals to accompany a fleet of complex characters, his films never hit that special spot for me, if you know what I mean. That being said, life-long Lynch fans should feast on his latest effort; a three-hour long experimental epic called Inland Empire.

To give you a small example of how odd this film is, its press materials included an assortment of still photographs (actor bios printed on the backs of each one) and a very brief synopsis (if you can call it that) which read, "A story of a mystery ... A mystery inside worlds within worlds ... Unfolding around a woman ... A woman in love and in trouble." Welcome to a David Lynch film -- next stop, Bizarro Land.
