WTF


I can't believe I finally finished it. After three viewings over the course of two weeks I have finally finished watching David Lynch's enigmatic Inland Empire (2006). Clearly (well, I use that word loosely...), this film is about Laura Dern's character Nikki Grace's psyche. It's about psychology, movies and reality vs. make-believe in a hodge-podge of visual styles and genres, but mostly horror. I bet if I watched it again I'd get it, but I can't imagine I will ever, ever be driven to do that. If you know me, you know that I'm all about film and media that make you go, "WTF?!" But WTF?! And Whatever.

I can't stand David Lynch. I always feel pissed off after his films. Not only did I hurt my butt watching him on cold concrete on a hot summer night in Brooklyn but it was again, like whatever too. It almost pisses me off of jealousy that this man gets tons of money to make movies practically for the purpose of just making a movie. The concept is funny, the idea of watching it is as exciting as watching all of Any Warhol's films. Its like an endurance art piece. Forget it. I'd rather go watch Eclipse. jajaja
