Inland Empire...
I'm itchin' to watch it again, alone this time (as opposed to with my friend on her really crappy TV), though 3 hours (plus 70 minutes deleted scenes) of borderline nonsense is a tad long to find the time and patience for...
But it's strangely compelling...
Makes me... want to do a brand new dance... now...

Hmm...Almost saw Inland Empire in the theaters a while back, but I wasn't sure if I'd be able to handle a 3 hour David Lynch movie where I couldn't pause to take a break or whatever. DVD seems to be the way to go.

After the nightmares Eraserhead gave me, I've been very wary of David Lynch films.

Saw The Simpsons Movie last night. Twas ok. Pretty visuals and had some nice music. Bout all I can say.

I'm in need of good movies to watch, so I'll just stick it here - if you have any suggestions, have at 'er.

Relatively any genre.

Typhoid, I just saw and enjoyed Zodiac quite a bit. If you know nothing about the movie or the "true story" behind it, then it's an enthralling watch.

I just BT'd Zodiac, Sunshine (Not Little Miss, but the new Sci-Fi thriller), The Lookout, and The Reaping. Wish me luck!

I saw Eraserhead the night before last (I bought it like a year ago and never watched it), and I wasn't quite as enthralled or effected as I was by Inland Empire...

Maybe because I was sorta half-asleep... But you'd almost think that'd enhance the experience...

Wasn't real bothered when I watched it. Just had disturbing dreams after, which I almost never do.

I enjoy good mindfuck movies.

I do know the actual story though...so are you saying I won't enjoy it as much?

Inland Empire is quite the mindfuck... It was filmed over a period of a few years, and was never originally meant to be a feature film...

Lynch was experimenting with the convenience of his new Digital Video camera by filming a series of shorts, which, as time went on, he began to find ways to "connect" to each other (in his mind, at least)...
He'd come up with stuff one day at a time, write it, shoot it, and edit it himself, no studio execs piddling about, no complicated shots that required a large film crew to be around...
100% unspoiled Lynch...

Yes and no. What gripped me was the story, which I knew nothing about. It was a good movie nonetheless, well done killing scenes I think and good acting and an interesting theme. But it certainly would have hurt the experience just a little if I had known the whole story already.
