This was a wash out...David Lynch is an aquired taste to say the least but this film pushes the limits of movie~goers. Is there any sort of semblance of a coherent story--- not in my estimation. But others will surely dissagree. Laura Dern plays an actress hoping for a come back (oh, life imatating art). This is really a film within a film. We've seen this before where reality & imaginaiation or film crosses over the line for the troubled & desparate. Trouble is the film is all over the place. For the Lynch aficianados...they will like this film, for the rest of us it's a mess. It'a slo depressingly 'dark' in the past Lynch's films have had reasonable blend of light & dark...not this.
