... the time, not merely reflect it. As Gabriel just said it earlier, it should elevate, not leave one in despair. Is The Gulag Archipelago pretty? Or Kafka's Trial? Are they fun? Or perhaps ugly? Are you desperate having read them though? What you are suggesting is simply "pop" in its lowest ...

Re: Just a thought...about the entire extent of our enjoyment

... his work. I feel, for example, that decades of this personality-centered approach have been more of a hindrance than a help to the mainstream Kafka research.

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

I don't know why you're quoting me......... I know metamorphosis is a short story by Kafka, i actually read it in german. I also read The castle and The trial. But Kafka is also a movie from 1991 starring Jeremy Irons that mixes up Kafka's real lifestory with some ...

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

... so I think even if Beckett is not a direct influence then Lynch and Beckett share 'common ancestors'. Whether it be Unamuno, Ortega y Gasset, Kafka, Camus, or any other of the vast number of (loosely termed) modernists whose thoughts turned towards Existenzphilosophie in the early and mid ...

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

Re: Above: Bunuel for sure. And then writers like Kafka and Beckett. I'm not sure if the similarities between Lynch's stuff and Godard's have ever been intentional, and the latter is a lot more aggressive and political, but there are a lot of serendipitous ...

... now he can film that crazy atomic bomb thing he always dreamed of. I'm surprised no character turned into a cockroach since he wanted to film Kafka's Metamorphosis some time ago. (Wait a minute... Is Dougie a metaphore for this?) Absolutely, the show feels so disjointed and inconsistent
