Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

Coming at this from a slightly different angle... Everyone - fans and collaborators alike - is of course entitled to their own strong opinions on the series. But reading Fenn's comments here, candid and truthful and perfectly fine and fun as they are, just makes me ache for Lynch in a way. The thoug...

Re: End credits sequence

I believe the end credits are more than a throwaway, no matter how you look at it, even if you just see it as a celebration of spirit. But...that room, I believe, is the same room that we first see Laura Dern emerge from the first time we see her. It's subtle, but I believe she walks out of that roo...

Re: Best home release?

Also, and this is very important, the US DVD is the only one that has perfect/correct English subtitles. I say that mainly because there is a key piece of Polish dialogue at the beginning of the film that isn't subtitled properly, or at least isn't the same as it is on the US DVD, or as it was in U...

Re: Best home release?

Is any U.S. BD planned for this, or would be possible? Of course the quality wouldn't be much better, but the last time I watched it on DVD was the first on a new set which has "full pixel" and gives you the whole image free from overscan. The DVD had a very clear line down the right edge...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I agree with yaxomay and LateReg that Leland’s function in the plot is key, particularly since it makes him and Cooper complicit in some way. Cooper’s entire mission—which arguably is horribly misguided and detrimental to Laura, depending on your interpretation—is undertaken at Leland’s instruction...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

Ray deserved more. There are weird random people at the Roadhouse that had more dialog. Yeah, I have to say, I still don't enjoy those scenes. Maybe they need to age for a while, maybe I'm just not in the right frame of mind for them, but that time could have been used for something else. I don't h...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

As for Fenn, do you mean the fact she had the role rewritten, or has some other drama occured I'm not aware of? I'm only talking about the negative stuff that was on Twitter in the build-up, which may have stemmed from her role, but certainly stemmed from something behind the scenes. I believe she ...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

A lot of things about it, particularly the way it's directed, were very Twin Peaks S3. The so-conventional they're creepy establishing shots ('Centerville Police Department'/'Centerville Motel' etc, sometimes accompanied by neon buzzing sound); the cutting between fragments of stories, which someti...

Re: The Random Season 3 Thread

I also think Ray's comments are largely a result of him being marginalized, and I think that's a shame since he was such a vocal supporter of the series' return for so long. Hopefully he can find peace with it. As far as his comments about it being "easy" on Showtime, I took that to mean t...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

For what it's worth, I too think that Kyle's wording/statement is the first definitive instance we've had of someone close to the production flat-out stating that it's over. This feels different to me from any quotes that have come before it, as every other quote I've read has been far more open ab...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Well yeah, it is over. It was a limited series. We can hope and wish that something more will happen, but expecting it would be silly. The Return was never presented as anything other than a one-time event. If true, it's the first time that I am hearing something that definite from the one of the p...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Is Lynch really having trouble getting funding? I know Room to Dream went into this a bit with Antelope Don’t Run No More, with Lynch I think blaming the fact that there is no longer a “middle” between low-budget indie film and big-budget blockbuster. But surely plenty of recent films and filmmaker...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Jarmusch gave another interview to Vulture where he said something similar: "Oh, the best of American cinema of the last decade, probably, for me, is Twin Peaks: The Return, an 18-hour film that is incomprehensible and dreamlike in the most beautiful, adventurous way. That is a masterpiece. Why...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Interesting thing LateReg notes about S 3 being more warmly received among the mainstream, casual viewership than diehard fans - gives me something to ponder... I think that's a broad generalization. I consider myself a TP diehard and I loved S3, but I'm also more of a Lynch fan overall. But it's n...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Jim Jarmusch: "But I think the masterpiece that took the last few years in American cinema is really Twin Peaks: The Return. Eighteen hours of incomprehensible T.V. It wasn’t easy for him, and, by the way, no one will finance David Lynch’s feature films — so, what the fuck, I don’t get it. Tha...
