Howdy out there, denizens of the Lynchverse! Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag because we’re hopping on the midnight bus bound for the Inland Empire. This immersive meditation on Hollywood has a reputation for being EXTRA Lynchian—and we can see how folks might hesitate to dive in at first: It’s a bit of a commitment, that’s true, especially for leporiphobes. But your loyal servants at Back to the Double R have gone to the promised land to mark the way! And ended up right back where started! But with subtle and unspeakable insights we will nevertheless gab about for an hour and change: Jennifer maps the many places that the Inland Empire seems to be all at once; Damon is on the trail of stories within stories (within stories within stories); Colin brings in the scholarly big guns; and Jonathan presses play on the echoing themes of Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman”! For the Twist, we conjure up some of our favorite movies about making movies and ask WWDLD: What Would David Lynch Do?
