Description

Directed by: David Lynch,

A woman in trouble. As an actress begins to adopt the persona of her character in a film, her world becomes nightmarish and surreal.

This film is pretty impossible to describe, so I'm not gonna try. It's David Lynch. It's Laura Dern. It's . . . wonderfully Lynchian.  The 2006 film, Lynch's first digital film, recently got a 4K remaster, so Janus is re-releasing the film to theaters, ours included! Indiewire points out, the remaster is a "perfect way to discover (or rediscover) a masterpiece that was largely ignored during its initial run," although some may remember Lynch's Oscar campaign for Laura Dern, when he sat on Hollywood Blvd and La Brea, with a poster of Dern and also a cow.

The original version of “Inland Empire” was shot in standard definition video and output to HDCAM-SR tape and 35mm film; for the re-release currently playing in theaters, the footage was downscaled back to SD in order to get rid of false details introduced during the original HD conversion, then upscaled to HD once again using the GaiaHD algorithm. Lynch supervised a new color pass and sound mix that have made the movie even more immersive and affecting than it was before, confirming it as another of the director’s masterpieces about the fragility of identity, the ways in which possessive men destroy the women they love and hate, and the struggle to recognize what’s real in a media-saturated culture.
