ENJOY THE MOVIES
David Lynch films are not for everyone. Inland Empire feels like a David Lynch film made for David Lynch fans. You get everything you'd expect from his new film - bizarre imagery, intense close-ups, red curtains, moody lighting, and a soundtrack that consists of spaceship drones and hums and a single angelic voice. You even get a random dance number to a popular oldie. These have become David Lynch standards. Yet Inland Empire is his most challenging film since Eraserhead.

Indigenes, in English titled Days of Glory, is a movie that has already achieved greatness by getting the French government to release the once frozen pensions to foreign soldiers who fought in the French army during WWII. Apparently their participation was left out of the history books.
