Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

Things continue. Forever. They can cook up a Season 4 if you really want it. I don't really care. I don't remember this board having folks dropping by to poop on Twin Peaks before season 3. Seemed it was more for fans back then. I have faith the disappointeds will be drifting away soon. Or at least...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

Slap on the colour key filters to find hidden details, listen to the soundtrack through water, watch three different playback speeds of the show simultaneously, upside down, with every 3rd and 15th frame dropped through an anamorphic lens and all references to tulpas swapped out with footage of the...

Re: Season 3 Ended On A Positive Note (Spoilers)

According to the theory I've come to subscribe to, Laura's awakening at the end was akin to a bomb that destroyed Judy, which is why the lights in the house go out. This to me makes the most sense because Cooper is clearly following a plan throughout the entirity of the final part, so why end the s...

Re: From an artistic standpoint, why was The Return needed at all?

I actually liked some S3 episodes, but the ending is... "Cooper altered the timeline" (or tried to alter it, or did try it in a dream.. whatever exactly happened, the time travel part was certainly there) Stuff like that belongs in a Star Trek episode or a Back to the Future sequel. No ma...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

I think Deming and Lynch just like a certain composition within a frame. So did Kubrick. https://vimeo.com/48425421 I also think Dark Side of the Moon and Wizard of Oz don't sync at all, or any better than any random album and Oz. The composition is not really the issue, although I have not seen th...

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

...talking about his ability to obtain an erection... I also didn't appreciate that, or the way we had to see Tammy's blushful half-smile in response. It was a bit like a lecherous grandad preening himself when his grandson brings home a new girlfriend. Overfamiliar? Something like that; he crossed...

That's not the entire ending. The Julie Cruz appearance is the ending, is equally impactful, and supports the intentional nature of the syncing.

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

It's one long film: 18 parts (1 hour). I appreciate the joke, but you need to watch it before you scoff! :D The whole of the two episodes do not sync perfectly or at all, but allot does, and the endings of both (and the whole season) are much improved by the exercise. As Lynch has claimed the seaso...

Re: Watching 17 and 18 in sync

I skimmed the reddit thread and though "hmm, none of this looks persuasive to me", but you are making me think again! I didn't see the reddit thread, but read the article. I gave it serious consideration after seeing the way Lynch played with parallel sequences in the Box/Mauve Room scene...

Watching 17 and 18 in sync

Alex Fulton was crazy enough to do it. I thought this was interesting enough for its own thread. It may be tricky to do, but if you don't want to watch the whole thing this way, although it is thought provoking throughout, just watch the last 15 minutes of each synced up - if you can do that someho...

Re: Part 18 - What is your name? (SPOILERS)

A couple of other excellent readings/theories that may or may not have already been posted here. Your second link is right on. I just watched 17 and 18 in sync, and it is almost certainly intended to be watched this way. The quiet atmospheric music and the "Lynch/Frost" end-logo shown wit...

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

I thought the poll would maybe be looking at academic criticism (hmmm, how will that get put into a poll? I wondered), but this is more along the lines of a Jay Sherman review, "It Stinks!" :D I enjoyed having my expectations undermined, and since there is no option for "none of the a...

Re: The "We live inside a dream" theory

Of course, 'we live inside a dream' could be just a general statement of Lynch's philosophy of life- it does not necessarily mean Twin Peaks is a dream (though it suggests that possibility). Dream is a handy word, but not a conceptually accurate one for what I am thinking of when I (and I assume ma...

Re: ALBERT appreciation thread

I am sort of thinking at the moment that Albert exists only as a character in the mind or one or more dreamers. Cole's and Diane's I think for sure, as well as Coop's for a brief background cameo appearance. The dreamers intersect throughout. Cole and Diane watching Albert on his date would be one s...
