As I see it I'll probably have to purchase both releases if I want to buy the film on DVD. But as I'm not nearly as enthusiastic about it as every body else, I'm in no hurry

I'm too broke to buy anything, but my brother picked Inland Empire up this week so I might casually borrow it in the near future, at least to check out the special features.

I have it, but I need to find some time to watch it, and then perhaps write a little about it.

I have a hard time writing about any of Lynch's films, not really sure why. I wanted to see Inland Empire again immediately after in the theater, but those seats are brutal for three hours.

After viewing Celine and Julie recently and decently, I also feel like writing about Mulholland Drive, even though I know I'm not worthy in either case.

I'm not sure what the problem is. It could be that so much is written on his films, and that the admirers of his films generally see his movies a dozen or so times so that my paltry acquaintance with the pictures won't reveal the right amount of details, or there's an intimidation with his work. This past year I saw Eraserhead and Blue Velvet again and found myself unable to write anything about either film, same goes for Inland Empire. The Siskel Center held a retro of Lynch films last month, but I didn't bother to go to any due to illness, poverty, and the availability of every film on DVD.

It's so good to know that even you two have the odd problem.

Cheers Trev.

It's only natural for one to be a bit hesitant when dealing with works of art like Blue Velvet and Inland Empire.

In other related news, Twin Peaks: The Definitive Gold Box Edition is hitting the shelves on October 30. The 10-disc box set includes anything and everything for the fan of the cult series.

Sounds like a plan I recently purchased a Japanese import of the pilot episode for my brother, but my procrastination shall be rewarded.
