Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

Ray Monroe was certainly not an FBI agent, they had some shit on him that coukd put him away for a long time so he had a choice either work as a paid informant and give the info the Bkue Rose Task Squad wanted. interestingky enough according to The Final Dossier Cole, Albert and Tammy didn't know w...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Well, I am going to try, as best I can, to depart dupga.com for a while, partly because I need to focus on some other things, and partly because I want to forget about TP:TR for a few months, so I can finally marathon it in the full 18 hour watch someday. Whether you enjoyed immensely or intensely ...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I know the idea of the voice being Mike/Gerard has been mentioned before, along with the “Phillip” connection (can’t remember if this was my idea or someone else’s initially, but I remember writing about it). I really like this idea because it’s clever, especially in light of Jeffries’s response in ...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread (SPOILERS)

I’ve been trying to figure out where the shot of young Don Murray in boxing gear came from. Evidently he played a boxer in this dreadful-sounding film (variously known as Childish Things, Confessions of Tom Harris, and....ahem....Tale of the Cock): http://www.shockcinemamagazine.com/taleofthecock.ht...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Satisfied Support Group (SPOILERS)

The new Badalamenti material, great as it is, is also a lot more minimalist than his work on FWWM & the original run. I think all the new pieces are Angelo solo compared to the band performances on the earlier soundtracks. We know that Grady Tate (no longer with us) played on the new material. ...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

None of it is interesting enough to warrant much analysis; it's not as if we're analyzing clues about Laura's murder like in the original, desperate for any crumb and trying to figure out this great mystery. But do you find the original series more satisfying in this regard? All of the clues were u...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I know we are just focusing on the plot itself here, but I think Reindeer should also mention what he wrote in another thread about the massive info dump and retcon, given by the usually explanation phobic Lynch of all people, and how that seems to have fun playing on or satirizing certain shows. I...

Re: The Straight Story

I look at the movie as his view of an ideal world where people are good and true and forgiveness is possible. It's the kind of world characters in some of his other works wish they were in. The fact that he didn't write it (although I'm sure he added his touch on the script uncredited) allowed him ...

Re: David Lynch and Hannibal Lecter

Too lurid? Considering some of his work, I can't believe he thought that novel was too lurid, or considered it a bad thing. I loved that novel, and the idea of Lynch having done it is very interesting. I believe his exact words at one point were that he found the world “real violent and completely ...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

I agree that there are a lot of plot holes in this story. But to be honest, I don't think they matter all that much. It pretty much goes with the territory. Almost anytime you create this huge, complex narrative, the plot holes become inevitable. Since 99.9% of the audience either doesn't catch the...

Re: Ray/Phillip Jeffries storyline

It’s pretty convoluted, that’s for sure. I still have doubts about how much L/F thought this kind of stuff through. In retrospect, it seems pretty obvious that Gordon and Albert were much further ahead of the audience than most of us initially assumed. For instance, given the Lois Duffy history, the...

Re: Part 17 - The past dictates the future (SPOILERS)

the more i've seen and thought about the show my interpretation is more and more becoming that there's a straight path from beginning to end in Cooper's journey ín which he ultimately succeeds. this is much more in line with Lynch's other work in which wisdom is gained after a hard struggle which l...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I’m still not quite sure what to think of the “not where it counts” bit, but there’s definitely a lot going on there. First we have avowed pacifist Albert having gunned down a person, a colleague (are tulpas an exception to his philosophy?). I’m not passing judgment on him — it was self-defense — bu...

I didn't call you a victim, and I have no interest in telling you how to feel. You can do whatever you want. But I do think you're being taken for a rather trollish ride. I also have no interest in saving you from anything - I just think it's a waste of time and an ugly, frustrating scene to watch....

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I don’t necessarily share LateReg’s interpretation of that line, but there has certainly been a lot of metatext to Gordon’s character from the beginning. It seems strange that anyone would debate that. Him being Cooper’s boss mirrors his mentorship of Kyle (and Laura Dern and Chrysta Bell, in the ne...
