I also feel the importance of "the new skin" and most of the character that's only seen on TV screens is pretty much over my head

perhaps with a repeat watching, I'd get more from it, but idk that I liked the movie that much

but even if you turned off your brain completely and didn't try to derive meaning the film is entertaining, great score and imagery

I've watched all his other movies except Dune, plus all of Twin Peaks season one and half of season 2. Inland Empire had Lynch ism's all over it and it moves at a crawl at best. I'm not treating it like a precious treasure just because it's Lynch, so I turned it off like I would with any other movie that bores me for 40 minutes straight.

not knowing anything about Lynch or film in general I wouldn't be able to contextualize it, additionally it's difficult to divorce oneself from viewing the movie as someone living in 2018 where violence and sex in media is well worked politicized ground vs. the early 80's
It's a David Cronenberg movie. Not a Lynch movie.

Doesn't mean that it's not weird.

"Wah boring" = the laziest criticism you can levy at something btw. It doesn't really tell you anything about the film.

The rabbit sitcom with canned laughs and no jokes would qualify as weird by most standards for sure.

Well I'm not going to attempt to say anything more in-depth about a movie that I didn't even get halfway through. Nothing happening for those ~40 minutes interested me in the slightest, so I never got to a point where I could have anything to say about it.

I was looking at the timer, considering what else I could be doing before I had to got to bed, any the movie got the knife. It happens.

I find descents into madness brought on by poisonous Holywood culture to be pretty interesting, personally.

I probably like the idea of Inland Empire better than I like the specific way it's put together.

Maps to the Stars has similar themes in some way, sort of and I liked that one, even if it wasn't the best Cronenberg movie. I'm just way more of a Cronenberg fanboi, really.
