Lynch’s hallucinatory vision returns in a newly remastered version overseen by the filmmaker himself, with Laura Dern in a tour-de-force performance as, perhaps, an actress whose dream role quickly devolves into nightmare. Intrigued by the possibilities of early-aughts consumer-grade digital video, Lynch started out shooting tests with Dern and then grafted on scenes of Hollywood machinations, conjugal intrigue, Polish curses, and even a rabbit-headed sitcom parody. The result is as dark, unpredictable and utterly compelling as anything he’s ever done, both an epic recap of a career—including appearances by Lynch veterans Justin Theroux, Laura Harring, Grace Zabriskie, Diane Ladd, and the inimitable Harry Dean Stanton—and his most radical and experimental movie since “Eraserhead.” “Possibly the greatest work of American film art since Altman’s Nashville.” – Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
