A blonde actress is preparing for her biggest role yet, but when she finds herself falling for her co-star, she realizes that her life is beginning to mimic the fictional film that they're shooting. Adding to her confusion is the revelation that the film is a remake of a doomed Polish production, "47," which was never finished due to an unspeakable tragedy. And, that's only the beginning.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An amazing and unshakeable experience."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"A can't-miss experience and likely one of the year's very best films."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A terrifying nightmare to lose yourself in."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"The three-hour movie is at once inscrutable and deeply satisfying for its daring high wire act of narrative illusion and passionately charged emotions."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A crazy midnight roller coaster ride to Lynchland. A movie you might half dream through an all night marathon of noir and slasher films, your heart pumping with caffeine."
‑ Brian Holcomb, Beyond Hollywood
"A bucket of Lynchian leftovers, stirred slightly and left to ferment in the dark."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Whether shattering or boring, you'll still have your eyes wide, wide open from begin to end."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Trippy, twisty thriller is totally out to Lynch."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"David Lynch's Inland Empire, which runs 172 minutes, keeps collapsing in on itself."
‑ Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine
"It's a movie spent inside Lynch's complicated head."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"You may find Lynch's experimentalism and willful obscurity to be the work of a poseur, ultimately pointless drivel. I can understand that, but I think you would be wrong."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"Lynch's brilliant and bizarre films have often come to us as a puzzle wrapped in an enigma, but his latest is enshrouded with two layers of 'who cares?'"
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Unspeakably beautiful"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"While the narrative is away with the bunnies, as a mood piece Lynch scores a slam dunk."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"While it is not nearly as good as Mulholland Drive, this latest complex concoction is fascinating in parts; even if you don't understand it"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
