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

I think the folks who were disappointed were looking for something that wasn't there (the soap opera and/or murder mystery aspects of the original series) without realizing they missed what is there: one of the great 'mind bending' psychological films of all time. But then again, the mind bending s...

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

Perhaps this season has revealed to some of us that there is nothing to think about Twin Peaks. That there is no grand scheme of things. That it is not a complicated cosmic puzzle. That it is truly a collection of good and bad ideas clumsily mixed together. That even if some scenes are cool or uplif...

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

Rewatched Lost Highway yesterday and luckily it's still a masterpiece to me Yes, it is still great. And it's not that hard to fully understand it once you grasp its basic premise: Fred killed his wife and went insane, so he created a fictional world in his head where he started getting those video ...

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.

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 Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

I really wouldn't mind the revisionism if the whole thing was off the wall bonkers. If the whole thing was in the style of the beginning of Part 3, Part 8, and the end of Part 17/18, fine. It would have been easier to accept as a tangent based on the imagery and ideas of Twin Peaks. But it's the fa...

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

The Sarah thing is also completely incoherent with her portrayal and behavior during Season 1. This is what we call a 'retcon' in comic-books. I have often mentioned comic-books in this thread before; The Return feels at times like an X-Men story: time travelling, superpowers, Fireman = The Watcher,...

Re: Mark Frost Q&A

Everyone thought Mark Frost would contain Lynch so he wouldn't go full Inland Empirey over the old Twin Peaks.

Who would have guessed that not only Mark wouldn't do anything of the sort, but he would add his own gasoline to the fire?

Re: There are 2 Coopers in the Red Room itself

I can imagine Lynch reading posts like these and laughing his ass off alone at his home.

I can't find spoilers anywhere else, even though some people already have a copy. Strange.

That's an incredibly interesting and appropiate message for this thread. Thanks for your contribution.
