Arts Get Your Inland Empire Now
posted by December 27 at 15:37 PMon
Inland Empire, the latest effluvia from David Lynch’s heated imagination, is a 172-minute opus that has been screening in New York City for several weeks. I’m rather skeptical of Lynch’s later, post-transcendental-meditation oeuvre, but Manohla Dargis’s starry-eyed review has me at least intrigued.
Lynch is self-distributing the movie, and prospects for a longer run in Seattle are not certain. But there will be two screenings at Cinerama on Wednesday, January 17 at 7:30 and midnight (Q&A w/ David Lynch after the first screening only). Get your tickets now in person at Scarecrow Video or through Seattle Art Museum’s box office at 654-3121 starting tomorrow. We’ll have a review in the issue of the 11th, but there’s no guarantee tickets will last that long.
Other events with David Lynch include a DVD signing (a prerelease of a shorts compilation entitled Dynamic 01) at Scarecrow on Wednesday January 17 from noon to 2 pm; and a lecture/reading at Town Hall on Tuesday the 16th at 7:30 pm.
