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.
