Love him or loathe him Daivd Lynch is a man you can't deny has never really wavered from his own, very personal style of film making. The trailer for the new Lynch film 'Inland Empire' has turned up on the net on a russian site and so now obviously, it's everywhere.
Inland Empire is Lynch's first all DV film, and looks like it's something he's using to his advantage. Lynch is a guy that likes to mess with our ideas of reality and perception and the DV quality seems to add to that by removing the gloss of celluloid. Ok Film Student nerd talk over. Interestingly though the trailer contains snippets of Lynch's series of shorts 'Rabbits' a weird mix of anthropomorphism and industrial noise (starring a couple of famous people, all contained within rabbit costumes). Ok really i'm done now.
Here's the synopsis from imdb:
Married actress Nikki (Laura Dern) is offered a role in a motion picture which is to be directed by Kingsley (Jeremy Irons), Nikki's co-star is called Devon (Justin Theroux). Nikki's role is Sue, Devon's is Billy, but they end up in bed with each other. They're calling each other the names of their characters in the movie. From here on, it is impossible to tell if Nikki is actually Nikki or Sue…
well that cleared it all up then.
Good or bad it'll almost certainly be unsettling
