Poorly paced. Short Scenes. Good idea. Badly executed. No character development. Long. Faux edgy. Not good. Poorly edited.

Spike Jonze proves he can make wonderfully twee films without Charlie’s help. Lovely colours.

A comfortable adaptation of being a child in Nazi Germany. Lack of emotion and good accents.

A film about very little, where not a lot happens, but the nothing happens in a beautiful and discomforting way.

inlandINLAND EMPIRE
David Lynch pours a lot of surreal ideas into this film, and over 3 hours fails to explain any of them.
