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

In regard to Lynch being incredibly lucky - I concur and I've talked about this at length on Welcome to Twin Peaks and it's something his hardcore fans don't seem to put much thought into: The first screening of Eraserhead attracted a whopping crowd of...almost nobody. DL had a 99% chance of becomi...

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

Eraserhead was the first feature of a promising "different" type of director. You can love Eraserhead yet not want to follow the career of one who does nothing but Eraserhead type films. It is not hypocrtical to like eraserhead and even The Grandmother yet have disdain for IE or TR. It is...

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)

You can't really call Inland Empire or Lost Highway or Mulholland Drive or even Eraserhead to be stories in the traditional sense, they have a central idea and a basic structure which they hang scenes round, but stories? Lynch has never really done plot development. Even the straight story is just ...

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

I'm primarily interested in the story I'm supposed to be told than trying to find a story where there doesn't seem to be one.

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

The most tangible thing Mr. C wanted was to get rid of Cooper, and in Part 2 he showed Darya that card with Judy on it and says: "This is what I want". Later we learn that Judy is an extreme negative force, so I think it's safe to say Evil Coop's big goal was to unleash this negative forc...

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

It's the same with Annie: everybody must know what happened to Cooper's girlfriend. It is not a mystery. It is a manufactured, cheap mystery designed to keep viewers watching; everybody, I repeat, everybody in town knows this information, and still it is kept from us. This is not how a good screenw...

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

Like many others in this thread, I have been pretty underwhelmed by this new season. I recently made a brief video talking about David Lynch's self-indulgence in THE RETURN, particularly when it comes to the character of Gordon Cole. Here's a link to the video if you have any interest: https://www....

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

So according to Sabrina Sutherland on the reddit AMA, almost everything that was shot appeared in the final cut. And Lynch added material during filming, that was run past Frost who could say yes or no (and apparently always said yes). That explains a lot. Regardless of Frost's input on TPTR, it's ...

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...

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

I'm assuming the "Lynch discarded the script" theory stems from Episode 29, where that did indeed happen. There's no evidence that that happened here, though, and the key difference is that Lynch is credited as 50% cowriter on the entire series, whereas on Episode 29 he was returning afte...

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

From the Deadline article about the entire season of TPTR: "But to say that Lynch has done it again, and taken on peak TV and won is ridiculous. Twin Peaks season 3 didn’t break any rules or create any new standards. It just showed that episodic TV can be even more confusing than HBO’s Westworl...

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

For me, it's time to put THE RETURN and all its nastiness behind me. I'm done talking about it. It is what it is, and I don't think I'll ever watch it again. I'll always cherish the first two seasons for their beauty, flaws, and uniqueness. But I need some time to wash away the bad taste left in my ...
