Loretta Young, that was the actress. Terrible story- I can't imagine what it must be like to go through something like that and believe it's your own fault, because that is what society taught women at the time.

Re: Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11yo

And of course this is all entitled whining; my “pain” at seeing my idols fall is nothing compared to the anguish these men caused (again, allegedly in Weiner’s case) to the women they abused and intimidated. Yes, and that's one thing we must always keep in perspective, it's the victims of abuse, wh...

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

Ultimately, what I really loved about The Return is that it got me back into full philosophical mode, wondering what the next phase of human existence looks like and what is the ultimate nature of 'reality'? Is the real world really 'real' or are we living inside a dream? Thus, ss far as consciousne...

After the lights go out in the Sheriff Station,we get a clear image of the Superimposed Coop.He is not in the Red Room as the background is something that is Black in color.Later Coop meets Jeffries and he tells him about Feb 23,1989 and Jeffries tells him to "Remember".Coop closes his ey...

Re: Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11yo

Clark Gable was a rapist. Should that color how an individual views Gone With The Wind Gone with the Wind doesn’t need any additional help being a troublesome viewing experience. ;) Heck, Rhett Butler is also a rapist. I find it easier to separate directors and actors from the work, as opposed to a...

Re: Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11yo

It's disgusting and incredibly saddening at once. I want to *like* and *respect* Sizemore's performance in TP:TR, especially in Part 13. He was crooked and conniving then he made a convincing parlay into his character's alter ego of vulnerability and supplication. But I loathe the impulse he's repo...

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

Whether I ended up loving it, hating it, or feeling indifferent, I'd much rather see an artists unfiltered vision than see a film made by a committee of advisors. Then again, many of the greatest movies came out of the old studio system... Ok Gabriel got me on this one. Isn't anyone going to rush t...

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

I think "disappointed" is officially the wrong term for this thread. If it was just that this thread would have died not long after the series aired. Vitriol is a more apt word. Vitriol is harder to let go of. When I've been disappointed by something I usually let it go and forget about i...

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

Someone close to Lynch (like the co-creator of the damn thing) should have advised him at least about what NOT to do. I'm thinking about the most terrible choices of the season : - The red curtain icon floating above slot machines in Vegas, turning it into a magical money maker + the infamous "...

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

You could have just precised, the vast majority ... of Lynch fans. Which is already sad in itself, but not a reflection of the vast majority of the public, I hope. Yet, thanks to the vast majority of moviegoers the never-ending trend of bad sequels, bad remakes or bad reboots will probably go on in...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just finished the book the other day, and although it's a little slighter than I thought it would be, I still really enjoyed it. The tragedies of Annie and Audrey were particularly poignant to me and felt tonally in line with what I expected. I'd still love to know whatever happened to Chester Desm...

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

You must live in a parallel dimension where FWWM is considered a masterpiece by someone else than a bunch of San Franciscan bearded hipster guys. Now you're just trolling. Whether it's considered a masterpiece or not is up to the individual to decide. What is clear and undeniable is that FWWM is mo...

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

If you care at all about the ‘storyline' You put 'storyline' in quotes as if it was some kind of weird or silly concept. Yet, almost all masterpieces both in literature and film that have stood the passing of time are based on a traditional, silly 'storyline'. Masterpieces which, needless to say, a...

Re: 'Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier' Novel by Mark Frost 10/31 (SPOILERS)

Just finished this and have to say that I'm glad that we got answers to so many questions that were kind of infuriatingly left hanging in the air. I don't think that this de-mystified The Return at all, I think it leaves things just ambiguous enough. A few thoughts: - Very sad endings for most of t...
