Re: True second viewing

I also feel strongly that having a year to digest it and come back to the material is key to true enjoyment. I enjoyed the original run, several different times, in various contexts, over several years. As with most Lynch- this is art that is meant to be unwrapped over time.

Re: True second viewing

I am watching it 2 episodes at a time, when I can really WATCH. No interruptions, no one else. At this point I'm up to ep 5, I really think it makes a huge difference having gone through it all once, so you can let your expectations go, and really focus on the details, listen to the sounds...

True second viewing

Man- I’m in the midst of my first true second viewing, and It’s very different from watching a second or third time in the context of it coming out. I have to say- it’s fucking intense. All the complaints about vibe and lack of music are WAY off base. I considered them at the time (first viewing) bu...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season 3 on Blu-ray 12/5/17

Re: all the debate on 4k, per an interview with Peter Deming: "The problem is that with the amount of special effects required for the new season of “Twin Peaks,” smaller, less expensive DSLR cameras have a “rolling shudder” and don’t supply a constant frame, which makes it extremely difficult ...

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 ...

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

So I just went back to watch part3, and a showtime promo came on. TPTR was prominently featured and something hit me- when we over explain elements of TP and just write off David Lynch as this auteur genius we just don't fully get- dude showed us cooper floating in the box. And specifically showed u...

Re: The "We live inside a dream" theory

This might actually make for a satisfying interpretation in my book. It doesn't negate any one timeline or another as "not real," it doesn't require us to view the series as partly or mostly taking place inside the mind of Cooper, Cole, Jeffries, Monica Bellucci, or anybody else, and it p...

Re: TP:TR Soundtrack released- Listen to the sounds musing

This is a guess but I think it's just one of those semi cheesy sounding "glass pad" patches, (think of the sound that is used during the Harold scenes in season 2) but played and then slowed down. I'm on my iPad and don't have access to my Pro Tools rig right now, but I'd bet if you speed ...

TP:TR Soundtrack released- Listen to the sounds musing

So the score/soundtrack was released today and with no TPTR to watch on sunday nights, clearly I immediately had to binge listen to it. It's remarkable. The choices they've made in terms of which score pieces to include, are really powerful, and do much to really distill down the emotional point and...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

I've just had this moment of clarity, and I haven't had time to catch up with this thread where I left off, but I will say this- I am genuinely worried about Cooper. I want him to be safe. But- anyone that thinks Lynch is having a laugh at us is nuts. Fix your hearts or die. If he didn't give a fuck...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

Any significance to the cars? In episode 2 (I believe) Evil Coop puts his Mercedes in storage and gets a black Lincoln from Jack. Jack's face is crushed. The scenes that follow involve Darya and Evil Coop in the motel room. In episode 18, it's Good Coop (or Richard) driving, if not the same, an ide...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

No different than Cooper having to live with the actions of his Doppelgänger while host to BOB. Disagree. Mr. C is a different person. I'm sure he'll casually dismiss his doppelganget's actions as easily as you just did. Fair, but if BOB was to overtake her, her best bet is Leland's fate. Also- it ...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

I respectfully disagree with this sentiment. By Laura taking the ring, she forces BOB's hand into killing her, thus guaranteeing her death. If she hadn't, yes, she would've been consumed by BOB, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she couldn't have been saved at a later date from this horror--wh...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

For months I was fooled - I thought Lynch would go for the ultimate happy ending, have Laura resurrected because he could. Instead he did the Monkey's Paw with Dale. (And as I've always said, he was wrong about the ring in FWWM IMO. I've been telling people that for years - Cooper didn't know what ...
