Getting ready for Lynch's INLAND EMPIRE ?

by Mark Burbey

David Lynch's MULHOLLAND DRIVE was released in 2001, giving fans a sweet banquet of his uniquely dark brand of filmmaking, so infused with style and tone and mystery. It's been a five-year wait that's about to be answered with the release of his latest feature, INLAND EMPIRE. At nearly 3-hours in length and lots of great buzz about it being true to Lynch's oeuvre of deeply textured and multi-layered dream worlds, INLAND EMPIRE promises to prove that it was worth the wait. After the film's premiere earlier this month at the 63rd International Venice Film Festival, Lynch was awarded the Golden Lion Lifetime Acheivement Award.

Except for a couple of stills, and numerous reviews that have expressed predictably contrary opinions about the film, little else has been made public. A trailer has yet to be released and a U.S. release date has yet to be announced, but in lieu of that, here is a great little interview segment done in France around the time of the release of MULHOLLAND DRIVE.
