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

Another raving review that read to me like someone trying to justify spending 18 hours with a mediocre work of art. See this paragraph for instance: What the concept of “late style” allows us to see in the new Twin Peaks is the sense in which the show’s unresolved, intransigent style stems from a fe...

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

Since two months I've started working on a TV series of my own and in the meantime my examples of what I want it to be have moved away from Twin Peaks into Riget and even Riverdale. Sadly I feel like the original run has been tarnished for me by The Return, I seem to have lost interest. And in hinds...

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

Rewatched Lost Highway yesterday and luckily it's still a masterpiece to me and in my view now Lynch's magnum opus over Mulholland Drive . The screenplay is tightly written, all scenes and imagery stand in service of the overarching concept of the film. Interestingly this screenplay was co-written w...

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

The Return made me reflect a lot on self-indulgence in art and why it's undesirable, resulting in this reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/twinpeaks/comments/78ildy/all_twin_peaks_the_return_and_selfindulgence_in/ Perhaps I shouldn'te have posted it there, but the only thing I'm wondering is if I ...

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

I've heard too many DL fans say that what's he did with TR's tone was so terribly brave. In actual fact this post-modern cold detachment and abstract fantasy is really old hat. It's been the conventional 'cool' style since the 60s. It's true that it's very rare for TV - but it's been done to death ...

I accused TR of pretentiousness but that is not the same as anti-intellectualism.

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

In a nutshell: ⋅  Bad writing. Characters were severely underdeveloped, infodump dialogues, and many random storylines that either went nowhere or were lazily resolved. ⋅  Poor direction. Shoddy mise-en-scene, cheesy special effects that jarred, weirdness for weirdness' sake. It ...

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.

Somehow I found this scene from Annie Hall very fitting for the debate between lovers and haters of The Return:

Will watch some other early 90's series that do not have disappointing returns: Riget, Carnivale.

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

Long-time lurker here. I just want to thank everyone for the wonderful discussions that took place here during the run! When The Return started I was hopeful, because David Lynch is one of my all-time favorite directors (Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive are my favorite films of his, I do regard Inl...
