I’ve interpreted INLAND EMPIRE as a portrait of a curse. The curse is ‘Axxon n’ , the long running radio play, a portion seen at the start with the couple in the hallway. Which was also based on a folktale. This was made into a film named 4/7 (clips of which are shown). Which in turn was remade into ON HIGH IN BLUE TOMORROWS . Each dealt with infidelity and murder. And these actions also are invoked sympathetically. Whilst filming Nikki realizes this and also how to undo the curse.
