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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: in terms of pacing, style and narrative structure, this season felt closer to Eraserhead than anything DKL has done in between the two works. My impression is that this represents DKL returning to his true, unfiltered vision after many years of compromise ...

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

You also wrote something about how "art cannot be ugly". I don't know who or what has made you come to these conclusions. The object of art is to reflect society and the experience of life back at you - in order to make you think, reflect, change. That can take beautiful forms but also ha...

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

If there's one thing I always think when experiencing a piece of art it's "I wish some schmuck had meddled with this in order to make it more palatable to middlebrow tastes." Artists and composers historically worked for money and were given jobs based on requirements by their employers o...

That's exactly what it is (except it's cinema which is obviously superior to literature). And thank god for it.


The prize for one of the stupidest remarks ever goes to BGate. Next time I re-read Crime and Punishment, I’ll have to remember that Plan 9 from Outer Space is superior.

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

I truly hope that many of you are able to return to the return in a few years with fresh eyes and open minds. Waiting quarter of a century gave many of us plenty of time for fresh eyes and open minds. At 42, I’ve lived a lot of life since I was the 15 year old who adored the original series and 18 ...

Re: Tom Sizemore accused of molesting 11yo

End of the day, I still believe in police investigation, your day in court, trial by jury of your peers, judgement and exoneration or sentencing. Social media becoming judge, jury and (career) executioner is scary and dangerous to society. There are genuine felons out there that need to be caught an...

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

Well, Cooper brings them to TP. I am pretty sure that in an alternate universe (“TP Season 5: The return of the Return of those gone after they returned yet never left”) they transformed TP from a small town to a metropolis! The question is, in the rewritten timeline, did the mill ever get torched?...

Re: What Other Directors/Actors Think of Season 3

Those dudes whined a lot and I got a couple of my friends mad at me for saying I didn't care what they thought. #dontcare My response to people using critics as their basis of an argument in favour or against something is to quote: ‘Howard Roark laughed.’ One has to make one’s own opinion based on ...

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

Which is what you wanted, but not what they wanted. Yet you blame them on a daily basis for following their artistic instinct. It is their lives, their creations and it is voluntary whether to be part of the audience or not. If their ‘artistic inastinct’ is objectively garbage then ill trash it hap...

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

I also have no respect for those that do not respect artists and why they do what they do. That does in no way mean I don't condone constructive criticism, but that is not what is happening here. And there is no need for Gabriel to write the same things everyday, in this and many other threads. And...

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

I particularly take aim at Gabriel (and one or two others) because they were being just as negative before the show premiered, and this person definitely had more than one profile. Therefore I have categorized them as trolls. I also have no respect for those that do not respect artists and why they...

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

Directors remind me of chefs. They may love what they're doing and directly benefit from their restaurant being busy, but when the place is packed, complicated orders are flying in and a few things are going wrong, they can say "Fuck this shit" while behind kitchen doors like anyone else....
