Do I have some treats for you!
Hollywood in Trouble: David Lynch's Inland Empire
Wednesday 28 July from 5-7pm in ib3.307
This Wednesday 28 July from 5-7pm in ib3.307 Dr Robert Sinnerbrink (Macquarie University) will present ‘Hollywood in Trouble: David Lynch's Inland Empire’.
Please note that I listed the wrong date for Dr Sinnerbrink's presentation in my email last week. The presentation is this Wednesday, not this Thursday.
Just for good measure, you'll find a good synopsis/analysis of Lynch's film at http://www.waggish.org/2006/12/28/david-lynchs-inland-empire-hypotheses-and-spoilers/. This should have you primed for Wednesday.
