      lynch was doing "liminal spaces" since eraserhead, all that backrooms shit is just ripping him off
      but inland empire definitely fits the most with the modern zoomer liminal aesthetic they're all obsessed with

    Is Inland Empire the endboss of cinema?

    Lynch probably pioneered like 100 trends
    He's a typical artist's artist
    He's the filmmaker that other filmmakers rip off but take it and just make it streamlined and mainstream so it's more successful

    Inland Empire is trash. Nobody can even tell you what it's about. It's a deliberate way of wasting time you can't get back without giving you anything in return. Lynch is a parasite

      Like most of Lynch's work its about sex trafficking in Hollywood & the occultism of that world. It's probably his most explicit work on this subject, cursed scripts & actress under the duress of psychological torture methods that incur a dissociative identity disorder in the subject making them unable to distinguish between a character played and a self lived is par the course for a good majority of films.

        >Inland Empire is trash. Nobody can even tell you what it's about.

        An aging actress takes on the female lead role in a movie based on a cursed gypsy folktale and attempts to break the curse and liberate both herself and a mysterious polish woman who fell victim to it a long time ago.

        I know the synopsis, but the film doesn't read that way. Its stream of consciousness boomer bullshit that nobody can follow. I know its edgy to frick with the audience but there still needs to be some actual plot and coherence. He actually managed to do it (mostly) in Mullholland Drive which is why people actually rate that film.

          There is coherence to it , this is cinema we're talking about as in moving images. Stop expecting cinema to follow in the steps of books or theater when it comes to story telling and it might start being good again.

            stop trying to understand it
            just feel it

            narrative matters, the brain wants a resolution, catharsis. I can appreciate lines of poetry but if it goes nowhere I'm gonna get cognitive bleu balls

          Both Inland Empire and Mulholland Drive are feminist films about the film industry, so once you understand one you can predict meaning from the other

      It's him coming to terms with wanting to cheat on his wife very akin to Eraserhead being about fatherdom, an informal trilogy about your 20s-50s.
      >Eraserhead
      Becoming a father
      >Twin Peaks
      Your daughter becoming a prostitute and the implications of such
      >Inland Empire
      Your coming to terms with being bored with your wife and having an affair

    Twin Peaks Fire Walk with Me is about a woman reliving her story.
    Inland Empire is about a woman getting trapped in a story and trying to get out.
    The Return is about a woman dissolving and becoming the story.

    Exoteric take: Lynch makes films about the film industry and the shady shit that goes on there
    Esoteric take: Lynch is a Sethian Gnostic and makes films about the struggle between Good and Evil

      Realistic take: Almost every story is a story about the struggle between good and evil on the most basic level and Lynch is a clever guy who has consistently succeeded in establishing a rich symbolical language to express that struggle in, that only seems related to the protestant christianity he grew up in or the watered down, westernized hinduism he picked up as an adult in the way all of those share certain basic, archetypal attributes that are natural to all human thinking and expression.

        Yes, but Lynch films and Twin Peaks especially have distinctly Gnostic themes

      It's pretentious homosexuals using the found footage genre and "elevating" it.
      >Analog horror is a subgenre of horror fiction and an offshoot of the found footage film genre,[1][2][3] said to have originated online during the late 2000s and early 2010s with web series such as No Through Road, Local 58, Gemini Home Entertainment, and Marble Hornets.
      >Analog horror is commonly characterized by low-fidelity graphics, cryptic messages, little to no traditional jump-scares, and visual styles reminiscent of late 20th-century television and analog recordings.
      It's taking something fun and making it soi.

        Yes it's nothing but style over substance slop that exploits y2k nostalgia. All the real analog horror was done decades ago and served as more of a commentary about how we interact with media.

        How does Blair Witch not get some credit for this? Is it not analog horror?

      Found footage horror released in a serialized format with short YouTube uploads. It usually emphasizes building up a sinister and usually implicitly apocalyptic setting more than plot or characters.

      In other words, it has frick all to do with Inland Empire besides utilizing handheld footage.
