Lynch quirks, riveting Dern ignite `Empire'

Review B+

March 16, 2007|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,Sun Movie Critic

Only David Lynch could make the incomprehensible so compelling.

His latest film, the almost-three-hour-long Inland Empire, proudly defies description, summation, even categorization. Audiences may not know why they feel threatened, or comforted, or disturbed, or enlightened, or befuddled, but they will experience all those feelings just the same.

Inland Empire (518 Media) Starring Laura Dern. Written and directed by David Lynch. Rated R. Time 172 minutes.
