Welcome To Twin Peaks - Page 47

post #2301 of 2377

A pretty interesting review of the recent season - https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/david-lynchs-late-style/#!

 

I especially liked this passage:

 

Quote:
It is as though Twin Peaks: The Return takes place in a world where different versions of the same story are played out on an endless loop, performed by an often anonymous cast of characters whose lives only occasionally intersect, but whose absurdities and traumas never cease to echo each other in new, uncanny permutations. It is the world we know, but the names and the faces are wrong. More strangely, this feeling of something being wrong is the only compass, the only coordinates we have.

OH HELL LET'S WATCH IT AGAIN:

 


 

 

Does anyone think there's any significance to the fact that Cooper's voice over on the phone doesn't have a phone effect on it while the Brother on the opposite in does?

How is PAL speed ups still a thing? Why haven't we obliterated that scourge of sound?
post #2304 of 2377

One of the bright spots of my work is that I can pretty much listen to whatever I want in my workspace, music-wise.  Currently listening to THE TWIN PEAKS ARCHIVE yet again, the library of TP music David & Angelo made available at davidlynch.com over the course of a year or two, a while back.  Nine hours and forty one minutes of Peaksy original score, alternate cue, demo and deleted material goodness.   If you haven't heard the stuff yet, a lot of it is also on YouTube...

2 months later and I've warmed a great deal to Dougie. I'm... maybe... looking forward to going through that stuff again one day. I'm willing to say, with certainty, that Lynch and Frost... might... have known what they were doing.

 

It's definitely going to go down in history as one of the strangest creative decisions ever made in television and film. 

post #2307 of 2377

Agreed.  While the act of living through the promise-denial-promise-denial-promise-FINALLY shuffle felt like an elongated prank and had the great payoff scenes in the Hospital we all love, it's tough to say if that train of events was more effective than say if they had given us an in-the-know Cooper all that time in an alternate sort of travel narrative.

 

Good Dougie-Related Stuff:

Jade gives two rides

Mr. Jackpots

That shot of Dougie in the hall at work not knowing where to urinate

Dougie's childlike wonder at basically everything

The Mitchum Brothers

Bushnell Mullins

SQUEEZE HIS HAND OFF

Janey-E and Sonny Jim

Anthony Sinclair

Seeing "Gordon Cole" and self-electrocution

 

Not So Good Dougie-Related Stuff:

Basically the fact that the entire thing had so little to do with the "A" plot of getting Coop back to Twin Peaks to battle BOB, save Laura, etc.  (Tulpa concept aside.)

I haven't warmed to the Dougie stuff at all. Maybe after a rewatch, but I doubt it.
post #2309 of 2377

Basically, I loved most of the DoppleCoop stuff that was happening in tandem with Dougie's Big Adventure, but now I'm wondering what alternate stories could've been told with Coop...

1.  The Evolution of the Arm traps Cooper in between worlds, Hawk prepares himself and goes headlong into the Lodges to bring him back.

2.  While I loved all the Gordon Cole/Albert/Tammy stuff, I wonder why they (Cole and Albert) hadn't seemed to spend much of the last 25 years actively seeking Cooper out more efficiently.  They had to at least suspect his disappearance would be Blue Rose related.

3.  More opening up of the Otherworldly Places: the Castle in the Purple Ocean, Purple Outer Space, the Black and White Theater, The Hotel where Jeffries seems to reside.
4.  What the relationship between Cooper and the Lodges has been for 25 years.  It seems he and The Fireman are on the same page, yet should I assume that with Beachball BOB hiding inside DoppleCoop all this time that in his absence there has been no negative influence in the Lodges or Red Room all that time?  Have The Fireman and Cooper basically been in charge all that time?
5.  The portals.  It seems fear and love and scorched engine oil aren't all it takes to open the doors anymore.

 

There is still so much to talk about in the world of TWIN PEAKS.  I'd suggest there's much more than just one season's worth of material available to possibly explore.  If not more Netflix seasons or maybe made-for-Netflix films, I'd love a TWIN PEAKS novel at least once a year, every year.

Plus, I've watched this far too many times.  It never gets old for me.

Classic. 

post #2312 of 2377

Just read something I wrote back in 2014 about the then-recenty announced Season Three...

 

"Of course, I'm also super-psyched for the return of TWIN PEAKS.  I'm a fan from Day One and feel that Lynch and his team will knock this thing out of the park on Showtime, where the bonds of commercial television standards and practices will be limited and they'll really be able to take the gloves off.  I'm sure the innocence and beauty of the Pacific Northwest area will still be cinematically spellbinding... but It'll take more to really get the proper fear and creepiness into today's jaded and oh-so-hip television viewers and this calculated method is just what Lynch and the PEAKS world needs.  Bring it, Red Room.  Bring it crazy and bring it hard.  If Lynch nails this the way he did Season One, the Final Episode, the film, LOST HIGHWAY and MULHOLLAND DRIVE, man, this could be landmark."

 

They sure did, and it sure was.

post #2313 of 2377

I just remembered one of my absolute favourite lines in the whole goddamn show.

 

Quote:
 COLE: “When you became Denise, I told all of your colleagues, those clown comics, to fix their hearts or die.”
post #2314 of 2377

Dat whole scene.  Especially Gordon's face when Denise mentions "screaming hormones"...

 

 

Supportive and embarassable.  It's so goofy and wonderful.

The structuring device of the roadhouse musical numbers, when did that come to you and how did you approach those almost episodic moments?

 

Because there's the roadhouse, and you could have the possibility for different bands, and people started submitting things through my music agent, through Big Dean Hurley, and little by little by little starting hearing things that were so perfect. And all those bands were organized and shot in one day. So Dean, much to his credit, he had to organize all that. A band would go onstage with all the things they needed. They'd record, it would be shot with three cameras and all the different things they needed, and then off they'd go. Stage would be cleared. New band would come in, all the stuff they needed. It was just one long, beautiful day.

 

In your mind, how does a small town honky-tonk do such a spectacular job with booking talent?

 

It's a magical thing. You talk to musicians and they play New York, Madison Square Garden, and then they get a call from Twin Peaks and they say, "I'm there."

post #2316 of 2377
I really disliked The Return, but I loved all the Roadhouse moments.
post #2317 of 2377

This is pretty good! Deepens a lot of the story.

I almost think Lynch shot this video. I was WAITING for something to happen.

My copy arrived in the mail today from Bull Moose:

 

Image may contain: 1 person 

 

Also, can't get over how much supplementary content is on this release. The eighth disc alone is absolutely terrifying in its scope and breadth.

post #2322 of 2377

Amazon already out of stock btw.  Ugh.

I ordered from there and got an email saying they'll let me know once it's available. Lame.

post #2324 of 2377
I preordered mine on October 29. Amazon hasn’t shipped. Went full Vincent Hanna on customer service earlier.
post #2325 of 2377

You told the CSR that she had a great ass?

post #2326 of 2377
I ordered on Amazon last month too and am getting the same answer.
post #2327 of 2377
I asked my wife for it for Christmas. Not sure if she ordered it but there was a package that arrived from Amazon today. It was larger than a Blu package, but there could have been something else as well.

No, but when I said $10 wasn’t enough for deceiving a customer into thinking they’d get an item guaranteed today, I got $25.
post #2329 of 2377
Videogame fans have learned in recent years to never count on Amazon for release date deliveries, or even consistency in honoring preorders.
post #2330 of 2377

There's a moment during the making-of when a staff member suggests a way to make a scene shorter. Lynch ain't havin' it.

 

For those who wish some of the scenes were shorter: hey, Lynch's crew tried!

If my boss barked at me like that I'd spend the next fortnight staring at my feet, only mumbling 'umyessir' and 'umnosir'.

Managed to snag the Blu-Ray from Best Buy yesterday, and rewatched the first 2 episodes last night. The A/V quality is stunning.

I hope he wins and does his entire acceptance speech as Dougie.

And with a close win in Alabama tonight, Dougie Jones prevailed over Roy Moore, sending the racist pedophile back to the Black Lodge.

The four and a bit hours of behind the scenes footage is fucking fascinating on the blu Ray. Also liked the bit where Lynch is griping about the schedule being too tight with no room to dream, claiming he could have spent a week on the theatre set with The Fireman and Senorita Dido.

On the other hand - the behind the scenes stuff with Lynch and Grace Zabriskie is......disturbing

For someone who previously has been so cagey about his methods it's astonishing that we got this much revealing stuff.

What’s going on with Lynch and Grace?

I get the impression that she went super method or really inhabited Sarah Palmer and Lynch responded in kind. It's sort of sweet in a way, pretentious in another and when Lynch whispers "I love you" that's when it gets disconcerting
post #2345 of 2377

Director's Guild nominations come out. None for Lynch. Lame, but awards are dumb so who cares

post #2346 of 2377
I just finished binge-watching The Return on DVD and apart from episode 18 (which I'm still trying to process), I loved it.

1498776995-19467991101588679967853611624858376474140574o.jpg

I now find myself extremely attracted to Laura Dern.
post #2347 of 2377
You weren’t already?
post #2348 of 2377
She never really did it for me before but in this? Wow.
post #2349 of 2377

I rewatched Episode 8 last night. Incredibly, that thing is even weirder than I remember.

post #2350 of 2377

I had a dream last night that I was at someone's house and met Amanda Seyfried, who smiled silently at me for a long while and then whispered, "Let's get out of here."

 

Then I woke up.  Dammit.
