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

Re: Mark Frost's quote about David Lynch's storytelling abilities. I responded to the same quote about a year ago, stating that the three films that Lynch has written without a co-writer are considered his three masterpieces: Eraserhead, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive. The writing credits for Mul...

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

... We don't disagree on most of those points, I even indicated Frost's absurdist humor. And I never said it wasn't a collaboration, but the thing you said- that Lynch had the reigns. My point was TR didn't demand the same structure season 1 demanded and that from what we know Mark takes dictation....

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

As for his woeful attitude to women in TR - Lynch isn't actually old enough to claim the "old school" excuse. He's a Boomer: he was still at an impressionable age during Womens' Lib (20s) and publication of Feminine Mystique (17). He wouldn't actually have seen many Tammy and French turni...

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

Imagine if the only Twin Peaks had been the European Pilot- it would have ended with a mysterious confrontation with BOB in the boiler room and an even more mysterious scene 25 years later in a Red Room with Cooper, Laura (or her lookalike) and LMFAP. Lynch fans would have been debating the ending ...

Re: Gender in Twin Peaks: The Return (SPOILERS)

Women rule post production. Which means we have final say on the movie Literally the reason why the first Star Wars trilogy was largely phenomenal, but the prequels a hot mess. George Lucas divorced his editor.[/i] All that was wrong with the prequel trilogy was the editing? You really believe that...

Re: FINAL POLL!!!!!!! Your Reaction to The Return as a Complete Work

Yeah I think it would have hurt him. I think setting a bar so low as to how connected/explained/made sense out of things have to be allows him plenty of artistic freedom. It also makes the writing ridiculously easy. Sarah being the girl from 1956 is one of those Twin Peaks fan theories that acquire...

Stolen from the internet, thought it/the commentary would find a good home here. ps Patton Oswalt's Eraserhead intro, he's clued in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_68o4wkhlYo : ”The woman’s got to show up, [like], “We all done, sweetie?

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

I just can't fathom people saying "I've loved everything he did since Eraserhead, but hate IE." Eraserhead is excellent, especially knowing the struggle of getting it completed. First great example of DL doing fine work under extreme restrictions, over five years! It really shows how much...

As for comparing TPTR to a turd, I'll leave it to anyone's appreciation. Lots of things have been calledvshit, crap, etc this way before your time or mine, and your words could be put in the mouths of countless people criticizing stuff, over the past century, stuff that you might yourself consider ...

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

everyone's got a different idea of what a story is. There's at least 25 pages of telling us some day we'll like it, or condescendingly that 'one day it will click!' or other variations of wishing we'd change our attitude or try harder, like the disappointed audience is the problem, not TR. Also, it...

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

The joy of not getting answers is that we can theorize for years to come. Yes, we can theorize about things like maybe Audrey is actually hiking in the arctic and just had a nightmare, which is why her background is white when she looks in the mirror. Or we can speculate that Mr. C is actually look...
