Inland Empire Wiki

Over the last few nights, I've thrown together a wiki for the film. Certainly a notion that Lynch would bristle at, but I felt that for this film in particular, some would find it a valuable resource to catalogue the various characters and motifs. I've always loved the "Lost on Mulholland Drive" site (which sadly seems to have recently vanished from the Internet); I thought a wiki might be a practical way to create a similar resource for IE. If anyone is interested, this is the page I put together for the main film: The synopsis acts as a jumping-off point to most of the other articles I have put together.

I'm not entirely certain how wikis work - I assume editing is open to the public. (I see options to restrict editing of certain pages, but not the wiki as a whole). While I obviously put a lot of hard work into what is there and would like to see that not undone, I would be thrilled if other fans jumped in, particularly on the "analysis" end, which is the one element I think is fairly lacking at the moment. There are so many wonderful theories regarding the film's characters, occurrences, themes and worlds. It would be lovely to see them all pulled together in one place (or, many places, but on the same wiki).

If anyone has thoughts/suggestions, please let me know (especially if I'm wrong and editing isn't publicly available - if that's the case, I would love to "deputize" those of you who wish to contribute).

Hi Reindeer, I just had a browse through your wiki: excellent work!! :D Looks like you've put in a lot of effort, & I'm glad to see something like this exists for the film now. I'd love to contribute some different ideas/analyses at some point, but I'm pressed for time at the moment (on a writing job too), so will have to put off any significant contributions for awhile. That being said, if I have some spare time/idea-power...
I'll give you a holler if I run into any admin difficulties, & will probably run anything by you first anyway to see where you think it will best fit. Once again, great work!

SC, that's terrific news! Hope we get more people pitching in. I think IE is severely underrated, even in Lynch-fan circles.
