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

Count me in as another fan of MD. I was mesmerized by it and didn't even try to make any sense of it. That was the 1st thing I watched after TP when I decided to seek out more Lynch. After those 2 I was convinced that the man was the best thing since the invention of the movie camera. Sadly, since t...

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

VERY interesting observations from Frost. It makes perfect sense that the only 2 Lynch projects that gained mainstream success were collaborations: TP and Elephant Man (the script was written by someone else). He was nominated for an Oscar for Mulholland Dr. and Blue Velvet. I'd say that's about as...

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

I've just marathoned (more like sprinted cause it's so short) Enlightened . It's remarkable how in just 9 hours of screentime Laura Dern and Mike White managed to create something so profound, relevant and life-affirming. With just half of TR's running time and a brand-new story!! Mind-boggling, isn...

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

As for his woeful attitude to women in TR - Lynch isn't actually old enough to claim the "old school" excuse. He's a Boomer: he was still at an impressionable age during Womens' Lib (20s) and publication of Feminine Mystique (17). He wouldn't actually have seen many Tammy and French turnip...

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

I also take my hat off to Roger Ebert for his cynical approach to Lynch and never changing his stance on Blue Velvet (my opinion on it is much the same). It's obvious that he never bought into the personality cult despite highly praising Mulholland Dr. I wish we still had him around - he would've to...

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

Personally, I have never been so enraged by negative opinions on any piece of media I love that I would try to shut those people up and accuse them of compromising my enjoyment. It's incredibly ironic that the poster was saying exactly that WHILE advocating for high ground!! :o In fact, I tend to re...

"in their self-absorption and determination for others to get as little enjoyment out of something as they have, do not warrant sincere engagement. There is of course a place for constructive criticism--but this is something else." Would you kindly point me to such a place? I've found zero...

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

For some reason fans of TR just cannot live and let live. They take every criticism (no matter how well substantiated) as a deep personal insult. Like the poster above, they get upset by merely SEEING the title of this thread when they enter the forum.

I mean, what the hell?? :shock:

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

If it was me, I'd let the people who did enjoy it have their fun. That would seem to be the more high-minded option. At worst, some of the posts in this thread are motivated by bitterness and/or out-right mean-spiritedness, and in their self-absorption and determination for others to get as little ...

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. I disagree, if someone replies to a criticism of TP:TR being weak, boring, pointless, dull, poorly acted, nonsensical with 'David Lynch is God', then it's ju...

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

Any artist that banks on their larger than life persona to sustain their career and relevance to the degree that Lynch has done, opens themselves up to such attacks. TR has demonstrated that it's impossible to rationally assess his work at all without dismantling that persona because it's become a c...

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

"Also, all these personal attacks on Lynch? What's that about? He's just some guy, made some films and TV. Don't like it? Fair enough. Have criticisms of it's artistic or cultural merits, fine, I'm all ears. But you know, he hasn't killed anyone, he's not a bad person. Get some critical distanc...

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

In regard to Lynch's persona, did you guys/gals ever buy into that whole naive and kooky "Oh, golly" image he's so successfully cultivated? I was always skeptical of it, but TR totally destroyed it for me.

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

"Can it be even considered avant-garde anymore? To me it comes off as a gimmick, outdated even. It's usually employed for shock, but we're all so used to it as such that it barely registers anymore. I think movies and tv shows are moving in the opposite direction of what TR represent." Tha...
