Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

Where is all this negativity coming from? I wouldn't write off a Season 4 just yet - all can happen. Let's hope for the best. Just pre-ordered the OST, releasing on Sept. 8th. Hopefully a Blu-Ray set will turn up soon as well... Then Shwotime will see, what money can be made ;) I've pre-ordered bot...

Re: Part 16 - No knock, no doorbell (SPOILERS)

A sadness is setting in - this will never ever happen again. But it's been so special.

Re: Roman Polanski petition and Lynch

I’ll tiptoe into this, I don’t want to generate bad feelings. I don’t follow Hollywood stuff at all, but reading about Lynch recently I came across the fact that he signed a petition to “free” Roman Polanski in 2010. I have enjoyed Polanski’s movies even though he is an admitted child rapist; I fee...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

I don’t know what I’m reaching for here. Just some thoughts. Triggered by this episode in particular. What if the message of “the return” is simply: with all good removed from Cooper, we have “Evil Cooper” and conversely, with all evil removed from Cooper, we have “Dougie”. Both characters seem chi...

Re: Part 15 - There's some fear in letting go (SPOILERS)

I felt like I was walking on air after Ed and Norma's scene. And then I was broken down in tears with Margaret's goodbye. What a rollercoaster. I am so grateful for this beautiful, beautiful show.

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

I see very little difference in the quality of work now with David Lynch as a filmmaker-artist in 2017 compared to him during his "peak" - whenever that was. If there is a misfire element to The Return then it's in the way it's released and structured. I would say that Lynch is ahead of th...

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

Their twenty-second scene, exchanging a couple of lines about well-established aspects of the Mormon religion everyone already knows, didn't reveal much about anything for anyone's benefit. If anything the scene showed that they are very simple people making assumptions based on wrong or incomplete...

Re: Is Lynch better with constraints? (Spoilers)

I'd say no. Both sides of Lynch are good for different reasons. The only thing I'm not too keen on is when Lynch becomes overloaded with other musical talents, like in The Return with all the various bands, Johnny Jewel, Dean Hurley's music all on top of Badalamenti. Lost Highway is a great film but...

Re: Part 13 - What story is that, Charlie? (SPOILERS)

Could someone help me understand what Audrey meant with her seemingly random "ghostwood" comment mid-sentence? It's such a bizarre non-sequitur. I'm finding it hard to hear some of the dialogue; not sure whether that is intentional?

Re: Part 9 - This is the chair (SPOILERS)

That hour felt very exposition-heavy. Particularly the Bill Hastings scene: after all the build-up in Parts 1 & 2 hinting at some sort of possible LH-style identity/reality confusion, we get an anticlimactic, chatty backstory revealing that Hastings and Ruth were armchair occultists. Eh. Wonder...

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

There's things i like about the return and things I don't. The things which intrigue me the most; Gordon Cole's blue rose Agents as a kind of 'men who stare at goats', occult loving spies who practice chiromancy on young agents. I'm fascinated where all that's going to lead. Becky and Stephen and s...

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

That is a great article. Very prophetic In an above post you stated that "no one could have expected this," ie that the show would turn out to be like later Lynch rather than Twin Peaks. But Matt Zoller Seitz expected it in that very article. I did too. A lot of us did. When the pictures ...

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

Couldn't agree more with the above, re the genesis of Bob. He was terrifying because he was unknowable. There are so many on this thread quick to deride the 'disappointed' because they think we want a cosy, apple pie mystery. Ok, well if you want to believe that and it makes you feel superior go ah...

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

I think this is the right thread to post this in. I should preface by saying I'm actually really enjoying The Return and don't count myself among those disappointed. However, I gotta talk about Part 8. I liked it -- it's obviously very visually arresting and wonderfully cold -- but I'm not sold on ...
