Re: The List of Seven / The Six Messiahs

I have read approximately one third of the List of Seven, and I intend to read the rest of it, when I have the time. Eventually, I would like to read the Six Messiahs, as well. So far, I am enjoying The List of Seven. It seamlessly combines the action/adventure with the philosophy/esoteric themes. W...

Re: Crescent moon symbol

Another thought about this. We know that Lynch is very fond of Stanley Kubrick's films. Ep. 8 is similar to 2001: A Space Odyssey, in some ways. Well, consider this image from near the start of that film: 2001_Space_Odyssey.jpg The sun and the downturned crescent moon. Similar to the images of Major...

Storyville

A few days ago, I watched Mark Frost's film, Storyville (1992). It's very good! Frost directed the film, and co-wrote the screenplay. It is set in New Orleans, Louisiana. Storyville is the former "red light" district, named after Sidney Story, the New Orleans alderman who, in 1897, had the...

Re: The Believers (1987)

I saw this film many years ago. I recorded if off the TV on a VHS tape. I remember thinking it was quite good. In one scene, the boy is sulking and the father tells him off for being a "sad sack". I think there are satanists in the film! I think the boy's mother dies quite early on in the ...

Re: Numerology in TP:TR (spoilers)

I agree with the idea that there is lots of numerology (and genuine mathematics) in Season 3. Recently, I have gone through the various numbers, and there seem to be several triangular numbers. A triangular number defined as: "any of the series of numbers (1, 3, 6, 10, 15, etc.) obtained by con...

Re: Carrie Page and Last Temptation of Christ thoughts (spoilers 4 Last Tempt.)

I think this is a fascinating theory, Cappy. Cooper is not Satan or the devil, exactly. He is a flawed, tragic hero. He means well, is a good person at heart, a talented detective, but he makes mistakes like all of us. His "Don't take the ring" was said because he is a nice guy and he did ...

Re: One year later - how are we feeling?

I have just remembered a scene in episode 17 that I thought was particularly good. Laura and James are talking by the roadside, next to the dark woods. Good Dale Cooper materialises behind a tree! Laura seems to notice something and screams. Then Cooper ducks down. James asks Laura what is wrong, bu...

Re: Recut of TPTR

This should have been an 8 or 9 episode series. I would have episodes 1,2,3,4,8,16,17,18, maybe with 1 slower less-significant episode. with the more relevant pieces from other episodes patched in. Most of the Las Vegas storyline would be cut. I just want to say that I totally agree with this. It o...

Re: POLL - Do you Like Season Three and How long have you been watching twin peaks.

There are still some unsolved mysteries, eg, what happened to Chester Desmond? Presumably, when he picked up the ring, it transported him to the Red Room, where he remained trapped for several years. Maybe Chester and Coop can try to find their way back together in season 4 :-) they might currently...

Re: Cooper's conversation with The Fireman in episode 1 (linear and non-linear approaches)

I now really think that the conversation is that last thing (chronologically) that we see in the series. Cooper is very far away. He is asked to remember Richard and Linda from his past. i.e. this scene somehow shows us a future Cooper in peril being guided by the Fireman to get out of it. I think ...

Re: The shot fired into the diner...

Is Jessie just absent-minded or is he up to no good? Is he working with Chad on some kind of underhand scheme?

He looks a bit like the man is New York who is paid to watch the glass box.

Is Major Briggs an Orpheus figure?

Several people have notice similarities between Twin Peaks and Greek myth. Orpheus is a great musician and poet who plays the lyre so well, it charms the beasts. He tries to save his wife Eurydice from the Underworld, but he somehow loses her again. He is told to pay homage to Bacchus, the god of wi...

Re: POLL - Do you Like Season Three and How long have you been watching twin peaks.

I enjoyed most of Season 3, but some scenes were too violent, eg, Richard Horne stealing money, and Tim Roth getting shot by machine gun. However, on the whole it was very good. The story was interesting and shed light on many things, like the green ring, the Convenience Store, what happened to Phil...
