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

Reindeer, I’m right there with you the Sunset Blvd. moment... I loved it. But I also loved Catherine’s moment with Mr. Neft, and naming Laura’s cousin Maddy Ferguson... hell, even naming the dead girl with a haunting photo Laura. I’m all down for Peaks being a meta and genre blender. Again, my prob...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Outside of critics and the Twin Peaks/Lynch fandom, Twin Peaks The Return really didn't make a huge impact so I'm not surprised not many big named actors or directors have yet to chime in because they probably haven't even seen it. I would love to know what Tarantino thought of it as well as what h...

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

There’s also the fact that most of the exposition-y dialogue feels very Frost, both in terms of his interests (mythology-building, the supernatural and arcane) and his writing style (see similar long stretches of exposition in his last two books). Watching DKL — a man notoriously distrustful of word...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

A number of TV luminaries were vocal about it — Damon Lindelof of course, Sam Esmail in the podcast he did with Mark. I believe David Chase said after the first few parts that it was superior to the original run.

Re: Parts 1 & 2 - My log has a message for you & The stars turn and a time presents itself (SPOILERS)

I'm not much of a believer myself, I prefer suffixing at least about seven question marks behind each statement or "person." But I do remember that Lynch saw a passage in the bible that brought him to an idea for the ending of Eraserhead, of which he said that it was his most spiritual mo...

Re: Parts 1 & 2 - My log has a message for you & The stars turn and a time presents itself (SPOILERS)

Laura’s “I am dead yet I live” has the ring of John 11:25: “Whoever believes in me, though he dies, yet shall he live,” adding to the Messianic Laura motif. Out of curiosity, has Mark ever spoken about his religious beliefs? Mr. C has a great little smirk at one point when Darya is screaming, as if ...

Ahh yes of course! I somehow forgot they shared those (terrific) scenes. Must have been because there was a piece of glass between them. ;)

His comment on the dancing duck reminds me of his duck walk in BV.

Kyle in EW: http://ew.com/tv/2017/12/11/kyle-maclac ... tv-debate/

Interestingly, he talks about playing Mr. C opposite Laura Dern (presumably referring to the “Richard” persona).

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

What I was trying to say is, this season represents L/F’s vision of TP as of 2017, albeit imperfectly realized (as all artistic works are, to a greater or lesser degree). I don’t believe that a larger budget alone would have led to a version of the show that would have won any more converts. Maybe ...

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

The original TP and The Elephant Man aside, DKL’s films don’t typically garner much awards-show attention. The show is living up to DKL’s usual MO, as I predicted: critically worshiped, a very modest financial success, and one or two awards nominations.

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

No, I did not take it personally (not sure where you got that from, it is just a show after all). Neither should L&F take any criticism personally either (if they were to read it on these boards). You missed my point though: Dougie should have been on the DVD box itself as the "probably mo...

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

People who do not like this thread point to it as being vitriolic, but the point is that this was how we saw this show, this act of taking Dale Cooper and serving us a brain-dead plant fumbling on the screen for 80% of time, teasing us with his imminent return (25 years later!), was actually what w...

Reindeer, I don’t think that’s true that we’d be disappointed in whatever Lynch and Frost gave us. I was fully on board. Still loving these discussions though! Sorry, I think I expressed myself imprecisely. I was responding specifically to Kilmore’s post about how the show’s perceived flaws might b...

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

This information about their resources being limited kinda makes me feel better about the show. I mean, it's crap, and they should have sized it down according to resources available, but still. The slowness, the filler scenes, the music videos, the editing mistakes, poorly constructed characters, ...
