I can relate to the frustration that comes with so many questions opening up throughout the series, and naturally we want answers. The thing I keep in mind for sequences of strictly music, is that DKL has used meditation for a personal practice and artistic engine. He's not on record to my knowledge stating one's informing the other but I try to think of the music as his invitation to let go and experience the song. Yeah it's staged and at times feels disconnected with what else is going on, but there have been exceptions where we did see action so Lynch is keeping me guessing! Anyway that's how I prefer to transcend my own "what would *I* have accomplished with those five minutes? Solved #A and #B and #C riddles and mysteries is what I would have done!" impulse and instead focus on the 45 or so minutes that did intrigue and/ or frustrate me.Terence wrote:That song at the end would have been more impactfull & better remembered if it actually was for a important story scene... tonights was wasted as has been said its the most Twin Peaks sounding song yet but it just ended up been a 5 minute music video to end the part... Surely David is not just going to use these musicians to play their song at end & not actually create any good scenes with them also.
And I say that as someone not criticizing your mention of it, I was moving my browser's cue Fast-forward through the latter part of del Rio's song and lingering on the stills just to see if any more action WAS going to take place! ; )
