Re: How will the new Twin Peaks be received?

I think part of what made the first season and initial part of season two successful was how it played with people's expectations. Critics at the time just didn't know how to approach it. After the closure of the Laura Palmer story, it really meandered, which was a gift to critics who could just di...

Re: Re:Lostin

Ok - I see the reasoning for all of that and I certainly wouldn't say it's outside the realm of possibility. I just think it's extremely unlikely. Based on the evidence of his career so far and the statements he made, Lynch seems like the somebody who doesn't mix art and practical concerns. Much as...

Re: How will the new Twin Peaks be received?

Reasons for Lynch deciding to let the series continue after this next volume, but without him directing every episode? OK, here's a few possible reasons - - This next part is successful for Lynch/ Frost and Showtime and they decide to continue, but Lynch wants to oversee it all as a writer and produ...

Re: How will the new Twin Peaks be received?

You're talking about this season(s) - after this, we can't predict the future. Lynch wants to take on all the episodes now, that doesn't mean Twin Peaks cannot continue without him directing every episode. If its a big success, you know what Showtime will want. Shooting it as a movie just means they...

Re: How will the new Twin Peaks be received?

Of course most fans see Lynch as irreplaceable. Of course, that's true because of how much he shapes the finished work. But, there are options out there. Bring in his daughter and two sons! Yes to all the past directors coming back too, as well as new ones. I'd always want Lynch and Frost to be writ...

Re: How will the new Twin Peaks be received?

My issue with a continuance beyond what we'll have is that I just cannot imagine Lynch handing off the reins of this, his most personal and clearly dearly beloved of projects, to a bunch of other people to take in whatever direction. This may get split into two quasi-seasons if the episode amount i...

Re: Who will edit Twin Peaks?

There's no way the editing will be left all to Lynch. He wouldn't wish for that either. It will be collaborative. Do you think the editing process will be shorter than the whole filming? I would expect so, on the whole. But then the editing may be done in installments, like they're dealing with two ...

Re: Possible SPOILERS: S3 casting & returning actors/charact

I really hope there isn't too much recasting but Getty could be believable as James Hurley. I know James Marshall has or had some health issues. James Marshall has definitely had some health problems but he just was involved in a film and would love to be in this new volume of TP - have you seen ou...

Re: Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces - analysis/thoughts etc

In my view, the convenience store scene works in both the FWWM cut-down version or the long cut in the Missing Pieces. In our video casts, Cameron makes a good point that the full scene should have been included in the released film back in 1992, which I really agree with. Lynch includes some digita...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

The fan edit of FWWM was, there is no denying this, tied into the most soulless and vapid aspect of fan culture - it was thrown together in a week, after the release of the blu-ray. It was making material available to fans who would otherwise have to go out and buy the blu-ray. Actually, the whole ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

All good points by Mark and LostintheMovies above. We've all been inspired very much by Twin Peaks as a work, its imagery, mood, characters and style.

Re: INTERSTELLAR -- Lynch as Nolan's Primary Influence

That's interesting too. I suppose there were other theatres Nolan could have chosen. Insomnia was a film that really had something of a Twin Peaks mood and look to it at times. Why do you think Nolan did choose Bowie for the Tesla role by the way? I think on these boards people react against somethi...

Re: INTERSTELLAR -- Lynch as Nolan's Primary Influence

Honestly, I think you're right on all of this. Nolan must be inspired by Lynch - he's not blatantly ripping-off certain stylistic tricks or camera techniques though, so what he's doing is more interesting. Unless I've missed it, you've not mentioned one of my favourite Nolan films, The Prestige. Imp...
