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

It's impossible to maintain critical distance when you're faced with this avalanche every time you'd try to present a negative opinion on TR. Perhaps the situation you're referring to (behind your hyperbole) should be expected, considering that this is a Twin Peaks/David Lynch fan forum? In fact I'...

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

Rialto What you haven't included in the quote is that I was replying to a previous poster. ah sorry. Understood. Sorry about the 'man' also - It was more of a colloquial hippy flourish that an assumption of gender. I still don't agree with this as a criticism of Lynch's work though: ''There's a ten...

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)

Incidentally, there was an interesting interview in The Guardian today with the writer, Jennifer Egan, about her recent transition from experimental novels to traditional narrative - and how much harder she found it was to write traditional narrative well: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/sep/...

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

There's a tendency to believe that something difficult to watch, must be difficult to create. It's quite the opposite. Shows/films that attempt to pull the heartstrings are ten a penny. Those that actually get people where they live are rare, and take true talent. The funniest comedy is far harder ...

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

I really like Eraserhead and I adore Inland Empire, but overall I don't think I like The Return. Re-watched the original Pilot tonight and I'm glad to say that rather than tainting the original, the existence of The Return elevates it. It's funny because back when I was more optimistic about The Re...

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

I wouldn't say there has been a strong thread of anti-intellectualism on this thread - over the course we've had some ranting and raving, but also some discussions on semiotics, gender theory, film theory, the novels of Joyce... this is far from a thread populated by those who shy from non-conventio...

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

For those who are truly, profoundly disappointed, I highly recommend the last edition of The Twin Peaks Podcast. Not for those who loved it with reservations, but personally I found it hilarious: https://itunes.apple.com/ie/podcast/the-twin-peaks-podcast/id432749455?mt=2&i=1000392072773 It's pr...

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

The Return, and Twin Peaks as a whole, has begun to fade away from my consciousness, and instead of making my planned summary of the good, bad and ugly of this show, I'm perfectly happy to just let sleeping dogs lie. I ended up heavily mixed, leaning towards dislike, which in itself is a huge disap...

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

Rialto, you are pulling things out of a simple question that aren't there. It's a genuine question because most Star Wars fans seem perfectly happy with how things have unfolded with that franchise (maybe the recent spate of firings have caused alarm). Sorry Agent Echo - we've just had so many peop...

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

Question for the profoundly disappointed: Would you have preferred an alternate scenario for the revival that was more akin to the current iteration of the Star Wars franchise, where a media company basically purchases the rights to the franchise and hires filmmakers who were fans of the original t...

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

There's a hilariously long review of TPTR in the Daily Telegraph which reads as a desperate luvvie attempt to justify not just liking the series, but calling it a 'masterpiece.' It's got barely any comments on it and you'll have to search for it, because clearly no one's bothered to read it. And th...
