David Lynch really hasn’t done much (filmwise) since 2006′s utterly baffling but still pretty damn good INLAND EMPIRE, but what do we see here? It appears that he has taken a note from Tim and Eric and decided to use the money of humongous corporations to spread his vision. This 16-minute short film/ad for Dior may be the closest thing we get to another Lynch film for a long time.
I may have referred to INLAND EMPIRE as being “pretty good” in the above paragraph but if I had one major problem with that film it was its ugly-looking digital video cinematography. That seems to have been massively improved upon here as it actually looks quite beautiful. Marion Cotillard feels like a perfect Lynch leading lady aswell; her wonderfully expressive and picturesque features only add to the mood and atmosphere.
