Inland Empire: Trapped inside David Lynch’s K hole

I somehow survived Inland Empire last night, 3 hours trapped inside David Lynch’s plotless K hole, which at least looks gorgeous, to be hit with the Coen Brothers’ Book of Job rerun A Serious Man, in which nasty things happen to someone you don’t care about in a smalltown suburb in the 60s. Everyone looks terrible. There’s a thoroughly dispiriting ending. Thanks, guys. Any more of my heroes want to vanish up their own fundaments? Oh yeah, David Sanborn’s just released a boring acoustic album (WHICH IS PERFECTLY GOOD IF YOU GIVE IT A CHANCE. PLEASE EXCUSE THAT IDIOTIC SNAP VERDICT.) I suppose the concluding season of Breaking Bad will be rebooted as a talent show with Ricky Gervais as one of the judges.
