Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

Showtime CEO David Nevins expresses pessimism about the possibility of a fourth season: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2017/08/twin-peaks-revival-next-season For what it's worth, that is actually a ten days old article. It doesn't contain any other news than was originally posted last week, w...

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

Can you explain ? (Honest question) I edited my post because that was unclear. I really don't want to take the thread down the political avenue and be that person. She's an object because Lynch is using her body as a sexed prop representing vulnerability by her nakedness (female.) I took this over ...

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

OOK. does anyone else think the stills photography looks better than the actual footage? I can't help but feel that way. I brought this up. I think the show is the most visually arresting thing on TV right now. It took me a while to adapt to its look, but I eventually did. One of the things that gr...

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

Justifying the technicalities of why Naido was naked is missing the point that Lynch wanted a "Nudes and Smoke" (David Lynch, IMAGES, 1994) moment. Tits + ass = helplessness aesthetic, and yes it's a surrealist thing to use naked women, but the surrealists also celebrated the transgressiv...

Re: Part 14 - We are like the dreamer (SPOILERS)

Question about Gordon talking about Philip Jeffries appearing in the Philadelphia office. When I watched it, I thought the thing that Gordon and Albert hadn't remembered was Jeffries pointing at Cooper and saying "Who do you think that is there?" The guys on the EW podcast seemed to be sa...

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

Yes, I'm aware of all that. But regardless of how MD came to be what it came to be, it still is a template through which many people view other Lynch films. It makes Lost Highway easier to grasp, and provides a map for interpreting (however wrongly, most likely) INLAND EMPIRE. So I understand the d...

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

I wonder if anyone here has seen Luis Bunuel's sixties movies like, Phantom of Liberty, or Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, or That obscure object of Desire? - all of which could have alot of the came criticisms that could be made of this TP made of them, the episodic uneven tone, the alernating ...

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

I don't believe that any of you will come around based on the final four Parts, nor should you be expected to. But I do think it's important to note what eyeboogers is probably meaning to say. Which isn't that the final parts will be so good that they'll make you like everything that came before th...

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

Violent crime is way lower. 1991 was the peak. "Today, the national crime rate is about half of what it was at its height in 1991. Violent crime has fallen by 51 percent since 1991, and property crime by 43 percent. In 2013 the violent crime rate was the lowest since 1970. And this holds true ...

Re: Twin Peaks The Return: The Mixed/Moderately Disappointed Thread

The Lodge stuff has been pretty hit or miss. I liked Laura's scene, especially when she's sucked away, and I like visual of the lodge being infinite, with the curtains raised and revealing the floor going on and on. But there's the odd flatness in the way it's depicted - I chalk it up just as much ...

I really thought the fog looked amazing on my TV. That atmosphere seemed perfectly conjured for the scene. I hope I don't think less of it on second viewing. I didn't even notice the fog!!!!
