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

Pulled this Mark Frost early 00's interview from another thread.http://www.lukeford.net/profiles/profiles/mark_frost.htm " I haven't seen it [MD]. I heard it was a mess. I knew that the pilot was a mess. David's strength and weakness is that he is often able to transcend story because he's such...

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?

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...

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

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...

Re: Poll: Do You Understand Now Why S.F. was pissed about her role in The Return?

To paraphrase Norma, maybe Fenn is overreacting. But they're her reactions. And the hurt she feels is her hurt. And how she reacts is none of anyone's damn business. Audrey was a tailor made character written FOR Fenn after DKL met her. How special is that? So how could she not take this revision as...

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

I think sometimes presence of heart makes the avante-garde crowd itchy under their berets, because anything resembling sentimental is Happy Days, clearly. DL has been telling the same story since Lost Highway, and others are just as proficient at the mind-bendy and the 'nothing much going on in a s...

Re: Poll: Criticism of The Return

Dropped plotlines are whatever since I didn't care about any of them terribly much. I feel soooo bad for the dogged theorists it makes all those weekly discussions pretty funny. I was bored for lots of the repetitive scenes. Roadhouse, jail, Audrey, Jacoby, Freddy's monologue, Cole's expositions. (C...

Re: So is there anyone else who prefers The Return to the original?

just a quirky melodrama. ...It's like comparing Happy Days to Apocalypse Now. Yep, just a quirky melodrama (not.) Twin Peaks S2 set this all up for TR and it wouldn't exist without the groundwork laid, the grounded and the far-out mythology. I think sometimes presence of heart makes the avante-gard...

Re: Reconciling the ending of FWWM with the ending of The Return

How about she got the shortcut to the angels, but Cooper still had more work to do- like vanquishing the evil (Judy?) that took over Sarah instead, and becoming Carrie's guide out of the nightmare he brought her into, which is not our Twin Peaks, or the world of the Return at all? We know it's not t...
