Adam Walter on “Inland Empire”

My friend Adam Walter shares my enthusiasm for David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and for several of his films. Nobody’s been more excited than me about the new boxed set of Twin Peaks DVDs… except Adam.

Adam and I both had the privilege of attending a special screening of Inland Empire at the Cinerama a few months back, with Lynch in attendance. It was great to see Lynch and witness his fascinating Q&A session afterward. But the film left me rather boggled, not to mention exhausted.

Adam, however, sat through the film again and went on to write a rather ambitious examination for those who would like to understand it better.

That thoughtful examination has just been published at Metaphilm.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
