An actress’s imagination begins to run amok within her reality when she begins to adopt the persona of a character she is playing. Things become nightmarish when she realises the original film production was abandoned after the two leads were murdered.

MUBI's take

With a fearless Laura Dern by his side, David Lynch delivers his least linearly plotted (!) and most experimental (!!) feature film in this long-awaited, fragmented follow-up to Mulholland Drive. A Hollywood nightmare in mini DV, Inland Empire is undiluted, unfiltered, weapon-grade surrealism.
