  • Deleted Role: Michael Paré had a minor role that was completely removed from the final cut.
  • Deleted Scene: One hour worth of them, put together by Lynch as "More Things That Happened".
  • Shrug of God: 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."
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: 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.
