Added DiffLines:

* MocksteryTale: In the beginning, it has elements of the detective/mystery genre (including a number of murders and several noir-style scenes), but it quickly turns into pure MindScrew. A popular interpretation is that beneath it all there is actually a psychological drama story.

* CreatorCameo: The lighting technician Kingsly was yelling at is the voice of DavidLynch.

** DavidLynch wrote it as he went, without knowing where he was going with it to see what would happen. As in, he pretty much let his subconscious direct a movie. Naturally, the result is probably the closest a movie will ever come to emulating a dream.

In Poland, a prostitute and her customer (their faces blurred) talk in a hotel room. In the same room years later, a woman cries and watches a sitcom starring three rabbits. An actress, Nikki Grace, in Los Angeles gets a visit from her neighbor and the next day gets the part in a movie, ''On High In Blue Tomorrows'', which turns out to be a remake of a Polish film based on a Polish folk tale ''47'' where the leads were murdered. Nine prostitutes lounge around a house. There's a murder, a mystery, and a woman in trouble.

* TheQuietOne: The bespectacled interviewer, who spends most of his scenes mutely staring at Nikki/Sue. He speaks exactly once during the entire film.

* ShrugOfGod: David Lynch doesn't like to talk about his movies, and when asked about ''Inland Empire'', he replied that "it's about a woman in trouble and it's a mystery and that's all I want to say about it."



* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: The film was written on a scene-by-scene basis, making for a rather surreal "story." The interview segments were apparently filmed first, with the rest of the film revolving loosely around them.

* GainaxEnding: TheOtherWiki's description of the ending: "The concluding scene of the film takes place in Nikki's house, where she sits with many other people, among them LauraElenaHarring, Nastassja Kinski and Ben Harper. A one-legged woman who was mentioned in Sue's monologue looks around and says, 'Sweet!' Niko, the Japanese girl with a blonde wig and a monkey, is also present. The end credits roll over a group of women dancing and lip-synching to Nina Simone's ''Sinnerman'' while a lumberjack saws a log to the beat." So...yeah.
