Laura Dern

Best Film
Inland Empire - it's Dern's best performance for Lynch, and perhaps Lynch's most Lynchian film to date. So expect dream logic, multiple identities and a twisted look at Hollywood.
Notable Pairings
Wild At Heart, Blue Velvet, Inland Empire

What's The Secret Of Their Success?
David Lynch thinks so highly of Laura Dern that he launched a rather unusual Oscar campaign for her following their collaboration on Inland Empire, sitting on a street corner with a cow in the hope of drawing attention to the film. And while you might not agree with his methods, it's hard to argue that it's a great performance. Even if you didn't quite know what was happening.

Were They As Good With Anyone Else?
Sure, her collaborations with Lynch were more of a thespian workout, but we'll always love Dern for Jurassic Park. And Lynch has produced great work across the board - Mulholland Drive, The Straight Story, Dune. Well, maybe not Dune.
