Lana Turner Overdrive
Screen legend Lana Turner takes a hallucinogen-fueled journey deep into her own inland empire in this mix-up from director Michael Frost. Life becomes stage becomes cinema as Lana spins out of control over loss, regret, spiteful teenage stepdaughters and LSD substituted for mom's Valium.
This is pretty good, with thoughtful use of weird effects rather than just "bizarre for bizarre's sake" and it makes me want to brave the pounding wave of negative critical response and netflix the BIG CUBE. I like it better than Inland Empire already!
