Re: Lostinthemovies and the Nurse in The Missing Pieces etc

"Considering Lynch went out of his way to bring back giggling Heidi for the finale & FWWM, I don't think it's a stretch to think he'll seek out that actress in 2016. It would be a cool twist and fulfilment of what could easily seem one of the more dead-end/off-track moments in the Missing P...

Re: My reading of the end of Fire Walk With Me

Lostin - very intriguing ideas overall and I was interested by your last entry. I never saw Laura as urging Leland to do anything to Ronette with the look she has. All I ever saw was pure desperation, but also a mixture of resolve and horrified acceptance that she was going to die. At that point is ...

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

But isn't BOB in Fire Walk With Me even more an independent entity than in the series? In the series he is an "inhabiting spirit", needs a vessel etc.etc. but actually doesn't seem to exist very much outside the context of his victim. Only in the final episode he appears on his own and do...

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

In terms of the 'Exorcist' type of demon, I meant that in the tv show, BOB was pretty distinctly an 'inhabiting spirit' - whilst in FWWM this was made less clear-cut. From my own perspective on this, because the film focused primarily on Laura, Lynch tried to make the demonic BOB as a manifestation ...

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

Lostinthe... Some fascinating discussion which I think could be expanded into a big discussion about the direction now of Twin Peaks. The unanswered questions about BOB, Cooper, Leland, Laura and so on are a big part of it continuing now. As well as the coffee and pie. Do you really see BOB as a par...

Re: Ajax Rules

"The controversy surrounding the second half of Twin Peaks, on the other hand, is a well documented phenomenon that many, many, many people feel passionate about (in a bad way) even 25 years later. It is a FACT that Lynch himself hates it. I totally respect someone like Ross, who says "I ...

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

Remaking TP to some new specs after the fact is just not possible. This is of course, utter BS. You may not like it, but it is obviously possible. For example (as was mentioned earlier): Leave all episodes until Leland's death in tact. Leave the final episode in tact. Re-edit the twelve episodes in...

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

Im sorry if I sound like a dick or a downer, but I am NO impressed by this news at all. It is lazy and not what we deserve.[/quote] I seriously doubt any major story threads like Coop in the lodge will be resolved in the novel. I also doubt there will be any compulsory exposition in the novel as Lyn...

Re: Simultaneous Tweets from David Lynch & Mark Frost

There's lots of people on good old facebook today pretty convinced that it's just TP being shown in its entirety on Showtime. Nothing more. I don't know what to make of it all, so i'm just going to wait patiently until something comes from a reliable source. I've made my views on any type of contin...

Re: Twin Peaks on Blu-Ray Official Discussion Thread - Spoil

I've opened up a new thread for this question, but I'll post it here as well since this topic gets the most action. Is there a production schedule for Fire Walk With Me available anywhere online? I've read the official shooting diary on this site, but would love to know in what order ALL the scenes...

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

As big a fan of Lynch and Twin Peaks as I am, I've never related to his work on a strictly academic level. I feel symbolism is most potent when it springs directly from the viewer's subconscious and conscious reactions, drawing directly from each viewer's perception and experience. My admiration fo...

Re: 10 Things We Learned From Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces

I appreciate the insightful analysis, but i strongly disagree when you state that "This is especially true when the film from which they were deleted was one of the biggest critical and financial disasters of its time". Are you kidding??? Maybe it was a cinematic flop in the USA, but over...

Re: Why The Missing Pieces are essential to Twin Peaks

Enjoyed reading your review of the Missing Pieces, thankyou very much!

I would have enjoyed reading your analysis of the 'above the convenience store' scene - I think there's a great deal to talk about there. I've posted about the Jumping Man etc in the analysis of the missing pieces thread.

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

It would indeed be interesting to know of any connections to Vedic ideas in terms of these symbols and abstract characters in FWWM. I am very interested in the character of the 'Jumping Man' who we see quite a bit more in these Missing Pieces - especially in the extreme close-ups, accompanied by the...
