Re: What Did Laura Whisper?

PsychoFox wrote:It's a way for Frost & Lynch to put back a secret, because the sentence was revealed in season 2.

For me, Laura told Cooper "I can't be saved".

It seems like a way longer sentence.

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

Is your complaint, then, not so much that the 'easy way' has been taken, but rather that long-term planning might have been thrown out the window on lots of occasions in favour of lots of short to mid-term plans? You seem to be echoing a number of people who have voiced concern over a lack of 'conn...

Re: Who is Judy? (Spoilers)


It all makes sense now. Judy is Sarah.
The scene at the grocery store is clearly meant to be viewed in sync with this

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

WHY, as an artist, did he do that? Maybe one's enjoyment of the new Twin Peaks depends on how interested you are in that question. You're right. But that poses a bunch of can of worms opening questions. Is why he did more important than what he did and consequentially is the artist more important t...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

Yeah I think it would have hurt him. I think setting a bar so low as to how connected/explained/made sense out of things have to be allows him plenty of artistic freedom. It also makes the writing ridiculously easy. Sarah being the girl from 1956 is one of those Twin Peaks fan theories that acquire...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

I read some comments passed to me by a co-worker from comics writer Warren Ellis, who said that the show may have been missing some "connective tissue". That's a pretty succinct way of describing some of the myriad problems with the show. What would it have hurt for Lynch just to have con...

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

I really enjoyed Meow (2017) if you're looking for a funny optimistic movie with also some romance and adventure. Thanks for that. I guess my point was that it takes courage for an artist to be humanist these days. It's too freaking easy to do ugly and nihilistic, because there's nothing at stake a...

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

It seems the Hollywood Reporter isn't very enamored with TPTR: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/twin-peaks-finale-how-showtime-revival-ended-1034888 I know TR is supposed to be critically well received, but all TV shows are on the surface.

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

Do any of the disappointed left in this thread feel that it's all done and gone now, all over? Literally it is but for me the first two series stood in high stead in my mind for 25 years and only grew in stature over the years. We're a few weeks after the last episode aired and it's already a footn...

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

Lynch has proven he can expertly handle the craft of filmmaking. Films such as The Straight Story and The Elephant Man prove he can create a narrative, draw tremendous performances from actors and can – daring to say it – touch the viewer's soul with warmth and humanity in his images. You liked The...

Re: Just a thought...about the entire extent of our enjoyment

I'm not implying there is a 100% fool proof "solution" to the ending, or even the meaning of the series as a whole, but I'm saying that I think there is a lot more detail oriented intentionality than people give Lynch credit for, and that there are a lot of seemingly abstract moments that...

Re: Poll: Would you like to see a 4th season happen? (SPOILERS PERMITTED)

Lynch's view on this is quite typical of what many of his generation of artists came to believe, funnily enough. In this ethos, once a work is made public its connection to a producer seems to evaporate, even while traces of the production process are purposely left in. '[T]he voice loses its origi...

Re: An apologia for Sarah

But Sarah was never shown to be completely innocent to begin with - not unlike anybody in the town. Twin Peaks (both the series and FWWM) used to consistently revolve around the juxtaposition between the deep issues, dysfunctions, horrors and the charming, innocent, polished exterior that pretends t...

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

Sometimes I get the sense that Lynch is like a religion (Linchianity? Linchology? Linchism?). You don't try to understand Lynch, you just believe in him. I guess it's because a lot of staunch Lynch supporters seem to think that everything Lynch does is almost flawless or defies criticism, or that h...

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

So, in short, I'm not a Lynch fan, I'm not a fan of anything, Lynch's work happens to speak to me, to my cultural background and to my emotional responses to visual arts, the same way I have affinities with other creators, famous or not. This is not a high brow vs low brow contest, and I don't cons...
