Re: Andy “plank” scene and Philip Jeffries scene

I always liked the Dead Dog Farm bit and the final confrontation with Renault, and his big speech. Watching it again recently it did remind me very much of Deer Meadow. (On a very tangential note, I also really liked the sort of waking nightmare of the Audrey hostage/drugging arc featuring Renault j...

Re: Andy “plank” scene and Philip Jeffries scene

I love the whole prologue - it's so dissonant, so strange and off the old axis, and for me, maybe it was my youth at the time but it only revealed its true importance, as a warped reflection of the town and the show, after the first time I viewed the film. The Lil sequence too, the piss-take on crit...

Re: My reading of the end of Fire Walk With Me

In the train car, for example, I'm positive Leland doesn't see Bob at all, even when he's functioning as "just" Leland ("I always thought you knew it was me!"). And Bob seems genuinely surprised that Laura knows about him ("I never knew you knew it was me" - although t...

Re: Part 4 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: Laura is the One

The only tragedy of The Entire Mystery set (aside from the loss of the Season 1 audio commentaries - I'll have to go digging through my dad's basement for the old box set) is that this series is not on it. It's right up there with the Criterion Collection's current trend of similar video essays on t...

Re: Part 3 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: The Whole Damned T

I was hoping for a chapter on the unexpected revival! Complete with Between Two Worlds, Lynch and Ray Wise's hinting in recent years, and so forth. I find your series fascinating. We don't agree on every last little bit, but it is mostly right on the mark for me and exquisitely designed, researched ...

Re: Part 3 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: The Whole Damned T

It's never not a whole. I just take the good with the bad, the so-so and even the ugly.

Re: Would Showtime Edit Original Series for Twin Peaks 2016

They won't. Lynch and Frost wouldn't. And it shouldn't be done. End of. It's just not in those guys to practice that kind of fannish revisionism, and it's not in the show either IMO. It has its hills and valleys, its bogs and roundabouts. It moves forward. That's part of its magic to me, even the pa...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

No, I'm not talking about Q2. That's clearly a fan work done out of love. It's not trying to make a case for "this is how it all should be."

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

The creative impulse on the part of a fan is certainly understandable, sure. What I don't track with is saying they have to officially reedit the show on Showtime or for re-release. That is never going to happen, and shouldn't IMO - the original show is indelible in the public consciousness, warts a...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

I also find it really presumptuous to be making all sorts of leaps about Lynch and Frost and what we would supposedly know about them better than the men themselves. Case in point: Putting all of the deleted footage from FWWM back into the film on the assumption Lynch wanted it back in. Unless I am ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

Delurking to say I think it's impossible to really appreciate Twin Peaks if you outright dismiss Mark Frost or 2/3rds of the series that was not largely the product of David Lynch. It was a group effort, and at its center it was the merging of two key minds. This is being too simplistic about it as ...
