Re: What's the source on Lynch not liking BOB's possession?

LostintheMovies - Ah, thanks for going through the work of typing all that out to give the context! That makes more sense. I'm very aware that Frost viewed Cooper as a Holmesian character (Scott Frost made this more overt in MLMT, where I believe Cooper talks about admiring Holmes); I was questionin...

Re: What's the source on Lynch not liking BOB's possession?

The primary source I've seen for Lynch not liking Coop's cliffhanger (at least as initially presented) is Martha Nochimson in The Passion of David Lynch: Wild at Heart in Hollywood (1996). [....] "Worst for Lynch was Frost's plotting of Cooper's fall into division at the end of the series, a n...

Re: Recommendations for Watching While Waiting for Season 3

I second many of the choices named in this thread, particularly Top of the Lake , Les Revenants and Mad Men (btw, Elisabeth Moss told a hilarious story about how she and Jon Hamm had coffee with Lynch and he insisted on calling them "Peggy" and "Don" the entire time). I also HIGH...

Re: [Book spoilers] Cooper's situation: yay or nay?

Doc Hayward perhaps? I'm rooting for Briggs, but this idea makes sense too. Arbogast has confirmed that Will has a small but pivotal role in the series. And if some tragedy has befallen Donna, writing her out of the series from her father's perspective in the book would be a touching and appropriat...

Creation vs. Destruction

To me, this is a key theme of the film. Lynch has often talked about the fact that as soon as you make a creative choice, you're closing off doors to other possibilities - "some things just can't survive in that world." This can be both a thrilling and a disturbing concept to an artist. Ev...

Re: Odd material beneath radiator

Sorry to revive an old thread, but to clear this up a bit more: in a TERRIFIC 1982 retrospective on the film by K. George Godwin, Doreen Small said that the stuff was “a kind of sticky, oily hair stuff” found at a “kind of oil well over on Robertson Avenue.” The article is available at http://www.ca...

Re: What's the source on Lynch not liking BOB's possession?

Btw... (you don't just name someone D B Cooper for nothing!) Has it ever been stated where Coop's middle name/initial came from? The only places I recall seeing it were in MLMT and the Access Guide , and on the trading cards, all of which came out in late season 2 with presumably minimal participat...

Re: What's the source on Lynch not liking BOB's possession?

I've read over and over that he reportedly didn't like the final twist, but do we have a quote on that? Specific wording? I imagine that if he didn't like the twist he would have changed it, just like he changed almost everything else in Coop's story in Episode 29. Unlike some of the other storylin...

Re: What happened to Donna? (Casting Spoilers)

Just happened to be rereading Dugpa's excellent 2007 interview with Charles Lauzirika regarding the Gold Box set and ran across an interesting (irrelevant, at this point, but interesting) tidbit: Lauzirika says he "came close" to getting an interview with LFB for Secrets from Another Place...

Re: Beyond Season 3?

RR would be terrific, although that script needs some work (at least, as of the DeLaurentiis-era draft available online). There should really be a dedicated thread to discuss that script on the DL board - wonder how much interest there would be? I love all of Lynch's features, but a Maharishi biopic...

SC, that's terrific news! Hope we get more people pitching in. I think IE is severely underrated, even in Lynch-fan circles.

Re: Episode 29

I was rereading the script for Ronnie Rocket and noticed something fun that I had forgotten: the lyrics to "Under the Sycamore Trees" originated in the film! In the earlier of the two RR drafts available online, a "hard low-class girl" speaks the lyrics to a "greasy tattooed...

Re: The Unorthodox/Controversial TP Opinion Thread

Yeah, this reminds me of that discussion in the other thread recently about Lynch's wacky sense of humor actually being part of the show's aimless wackiness in S2, instead of all that being something completely outside of Lynch's sensibilities. Most of his material in that vein, characters like And...

Re: The Unorthodox/Controversial TP Opinion Thread

Hm, well that depends on your definition of "considerably"! I do think the core/essence of TP is Lynch/Frost. Maybe with a bit more of an edge for Lynch primarily because he made the film (which defines/re-defines part of that core, and was the endpoint for 25 years) without Frost. Althou...
