Inland Empire

This is the latest weird offering from David Lynch. It feautures the story of actors making a film who are aware of the fact that a previous attempt to make the film had resulted in the leads being murdered. The actress then finds herself becoming confused between the film, her own life and her dreams as well as becoming involved in a story of a Polish family (filmed exclusively in Polish with no subtitles - I can only hope this film is being marketed to the expanding Polish community in Edinburgh!). There is also a tv series featuring talking rabbits that is shown at random intervals during the film. The whole production has the slant disjointed feel of dreams on the edge of nightmares. It's wonderfully weird if you like Lynch's work and either speak Polish or don't mind not being able to understand most of the dialogue. Otherwise, you may be wise not to bother.
