First Review of Twin Peaks Season 2.1 in German from CBS Paramount
For those of you that can read German, here is a link to the very first review of Twin Peaks Season 2.1 on DVD. Some things to note. The reviewer seemed to like the audio and video quality. And as rumored, there are no Log Lady Intros in this set. Also missing are the script notes and commentaries which is understandable as Lynch is not fond of commentaries and unlike the Season 1 set, Lynch has supervised the transfers on this set. As reported earlier, the US release will be in a single box set and will likely be released on April 10th. Also to note, the review mentions that the Season 2.2 box set will include some extras, which will most likely be new interviews with the cast and crew.

News from this Weekends New York and Boston INLAND EMPIRE Screenings
Lynch, Dern, and Theroux were at this weekends INLAND EMPIRE screenings at New York’s Lincoln Center and Boston’s Brattle Theater. Here are some quotes from some of those that attended:
…they mainly talked about the filming of “Inland,” and how Lynch would just write scenes and the actors would basically film them, enjoying the freedom, as Theroux put it, to simply focus on the scene and not worry about any sort of greater context and what it would mean for the rest of the film. Some Lynch highlights included a man asking him if the number 47 has any significance in the film (which it does, to be sure) as it is seen at various moments. Lynch simply stared at the man, raised the mic up and said “Heavy…significance.” He then went on to another question. Another guy asked him “…what are the chances of there ever being another Twin Peaks movie that ties up all the loose ends?” Lynch also stared at him, asked “What are the chances?”, held up his hand forming a zero, and said, “Zero.” Granted, he could’ve been using the questioner’s semantics as an out, b/c the guy specified the film as one that would “tie up all the loose ends,” but I digress. They also gave out free samples of his new coffee line, though they were all out before I could get any. Also, #1 highlight for me: afterwards, my friend and I waited outside for him with some other people (because we’re both dorks) and I actually got to shake the man’s hand. My voice was quivering, but I sputtered something about what an absolute pleasure it was to meet him, and I managed to say that if he ever could release an extended version of FWWM on DVD, that it would be awesome. He looked me right in the eye
(still firmly holding onto my hand) and said “I tell you what, I’ll do that just for you, man.” What a cool guy.
…he (Lynch) came out with a woman with a viola and he said she’d do a little improvisional viola piece, and the woman did…she played a spooky little random viola piece and everyone clapped. Afte rthis David Lynch read a short excerpt from a poem regarding dreams (I wish I could recall it exactly but I was so excited it all sort of blurred togetrher). It was really cool and set up the film well. After the film there was a Q and A. I asked Lynch about his obsession with electricity through all his films, you know, what he found so fascinating about electricity and how it seems that electricity perhaps controlled people in his films… And in classic David Lynch deadpan style he replied that he found electricity interesting: “Cause electricity controls people.” Everyone laughed and he continued, explaining that he doesn’t understand why more people aren’t fascinated by electricity and how it does control so much of our lives, as well as sometimes creating beautiful light and fascinating sounds and sometimes…danger…It was a really nice answer!
and one from a fan that got a hold of his coffee…
David gave out coffee and also packets of his own coffer brand. It is called “David Lynch Signature Cup” “Organic House Roast” There is even a quote by him on the packet 🙂 “It’s all in the beans…and I’m just full of beans.”… I had some of the coffee this morning and it was a “damn fine cup of coffee”. After last night it was “a good wake me up.”
Now you too can get some of Lynch’s signature coffee…

Twin Peaks Season 2 DVD
Well, I made a few phone calls to Paramount US, and they say there is no press release for the US Box set at this time. I guess we will just have to wait, although I can guarantee you that Season 2 will be released in the US in 2007. The question is not if, but when. Meanwhile, Norway, will also be getting the 2.1 set in January. Meanwhile, here is the artwork for the Season 2.2 German box set. Not sure why they repeated the Agent Cooper theme, but maybe that is what it will look like with a slipcover…
Thanks to all that sent in today’s scoops.

Twin Peaks Season 2 DVD Set Box Art and Announcement for Europe in Two Sets – Updated
Well, it’s about time! Today I have gotten word that Paramount has announced Season 2 to be split into two box sets with the first being set for release in January 2007. So far, I have links to Online Stores offering the first box set in Sweden, Italy, and now even Germany. From the looks of it, Twin Peaks Season 2.1 will be released in at the end of January with the second box set to follow in April 2007. Also of interest is that in Germany, Paramount also seem to be offering a complete box set of Season 2 on 6 discs in October 2007 called “Twin Peaks: the Complete Mystery“. We also know that the first half of Season 2 will be spread over 3 Discs (Sweden and Germany specs) or 4 Discs (Italy) which likely means not much room for extras. Hopefully the compression won’t be too bad or maybe they will use double sided discs… All this is speculation for now, and specs are likely to change. For now, take a gander at the International box art and what may also be the US box art. It looks quite nice.
Special thanks to Sebastian Eklund, Christian Oscarsson, and Salvatore Iozzo for sending me the links!
INLAND EMPIRE at AFI Fest Mini Review by Dugpa
Well, last night I saw INLAND EMPIRE. While I could write a lengthy review, I think I’d rather keep it short and sweet. The look and feel, while it was filmed in DV, did work out quite nice. Those that were afraid that the film would look like the “Room to Dream” clip, no need to worry. There were moments that I was convinced that Lynch was using film. It looked THAT good. Others shots you could tell were definitely DV shots. I can see where Lynch finds his freedom in DV. Give it a few more years and I think he may be able to perfect it. The film was the most raw I have ever seen Lynch. The story reminded me a bit of Mulholland Drive, but it takes you places that Mulholland Drive couldn’t. I did miss the music of Angelo Badalamenti, as I don’t recall there being more than one piece by Angelo if that. While I really enjoyed the film, I think that this film is best suited for hardcore Lynch fans as mainstream audiences will probably not get it. Lynch is credited to most of the instrumental music on the film. Laura Dern was spot on. She reminded me a lot of a young Charlotte Stewart (Mary X of Eraserhead). Many of the themes were taken from some of Lynch’s material on David Lynch.com. All in all, I can’t wait to see this film again.
After the film was over, David Lynch, Laura Dern, and Justin Threoux did a Q&A session. Later, Lynch signed autographs and answered questions of the fans. One girl brought him a Cherry pie and a clean fork which Lynch seemed to enjoy. A question came up regarding the “legendary” Deleted Scenes of FWWM, to which Lynch responded “We’re working on it.” The night was a lot of fun and I was able to meet some of you that read the site.

MK2 FWWM DVD in Fourth Quarter of 2007
According to the French DVD site, DVDRAMA, they have been told that MK2 plans on releasing FWWM in a 2 Disc Collectors Edition. The article claims that bonus features will include over an hours worth of Deleted Scenes supervised by Lynch. Below is the text and a rough translation:
Une annonce qui fait l’effet d’un tollé d’autant plus que cette nouvelle édition, contrairement à la précédente sortie le 8 décembre 2004, devrait s’enrichir de scènes coupées d’environ une heure supervisées par David Lynch.
Of special note, this new edition, contrary to the original release on December 8, 2004, will contain approximately an hour of Deleted Scenes supervised by David Lynch.
While this sounds like great news, I have been told that news as of last week was that Lynch and MK2 were still in negotiations. Hopefully with the news from the INLAND EMPIRE Q&A and now this… maybe… something is happening… I’ll post a confirmation as soon as I get something solid.
Special thanks to Théophile Aries for the great scoop!

Patrick Meaney has a great review up on his blog. After the Q&A session, Lynch did a signing where he revealed that the 5.1 mixes for Season 2 were done and they sound great. He also revealed that the Deleted Scenes to FWWM were coming. Could it be that MK2 has finally worked out a deal with Lynch to get this to happpen? Thanks to Kristoffer Bjorkman for the link!

INLAND EMPIRE Details on Indiewire for the New York Film Festival
Taken from Indiewire: A Polish woman looks, intently, into someone or something … an actress (Laura Dern) is warned that her new movie is cursed … a rabbit-headed family perform sit-com actions on a stage set as if engaged in a solemn ritual … Such are just a few of the elements and recurrent motifs of The Inland Empire, a mesmerizing surge through countless looking glasses that lands us on the far side of the land of nightmares. Lynch’s first foray into high-definition video is just as visually stunning as his work in 35mm, but the long gestation period of his new film (he shot on and off over two years, and wrote as he went) has allowed him to give his own uniquely epic form to many of his primary concerns: the exploitation of young women, the mutability of identity, the omnivorousness of Hollywood.

Looking for Twin Peaks fans for New TV Show
Fanatical Productions Inc., a subsidiary of Peace Point Entertainment Group, is producing a 26-part documentary-style series about the culture of fandom. Each episode will focus on a different program- everything from The Dukes of Hazzard to Sex & the City, and of course Twin Peaks – and will feature 2-3 fans of the program from Canada and the US. They are looking to explore the program through the eyes of the fans.
Their series will unearth why the fans love the show, how following and analyzing the show makes them feel, the impact of the program, what their friends and family think, and the culture of fandom (different shows express their fandom differently – look at Sex & the City and Star Trek).
The program will air in Canada on TVtropolis, a new Canadian Network launching under the Global Television Network family of channels.
Twin Peaks hit the airwaves with a bang and kept us intrigued for 2 years. To this day we still question the symbolism and influence of the series. If you’re a big fan and would like to share your love of the series with others, or would like more information regarding their program, please send an email to:

Out for a Few Weeks
I’ll be out for the next few weeks. A few things to report are that INLAND EMPIRE will not premiere at this years Cannes Film Festival. Rumors have been floating around that it should be released sometime around November of this year. As for what that means for other Lynch Projects, you can expect that work on the transfers for Twin Peaks Season 2 will probably be delayed until after INLAND EMPIRE has completed. Lets cross our fingers and hope that this still means a late 2006 release will still be possible. In other Twin Peaks related news, I heard back from MK2 that they are still working with Lynch to try and come to some sort of agreement and that a re-release of FWWM on DVD would come out no earlier than early 2007. Hopefully I will have something to share in the coming weeks. Recently Studio Canal has announced releases of the Elephant Man and Mulholland Drive on HD DVD. I’ll post some details when I return. Finally, the website NotComing.com recently published a very cool Guide to Twin Peaks. It’s definitely worth checking out. See you all in a few weeks with some more Lynch updates and cool links to some interesting things.

Room to Dream DVD Available for Free – Get Your Copy Today!!!
Now here’s something big worth talking about. I just received a copy of the DVD Room to Dream. Digidesign has put this FREE DVD out as a promotional piece by Digidesign which showcases Lynch’s work with DV and Avid. They take a scene that David has filmed on DV and basically go step by step on how he used the Avid to design and complete the scene. The scene features appearances by John Neff, Mary Sweeney, Chrysta Bell, as well as some of the actors that have been attached with INLAND EMPIRE. While there is no confirmation to whether or not the scene on the DVD is from INLAND EMPIRE, I would be willing to bet that it is. The DVD is so good that I would have actually paid to own a copy, but best of all, the DVD is available for FREE. That’s right my friends. Click here for more details on how you can get yourself a copy and see some really cool stuff. After watching the DVD, I sure as hell want to upgrade to an Avid. Check out the screen caps below.
Special thanks to Nathan Stack for the great find!

Dune Ultimate Edition DVD
Well, got the disc a few days back. It’s good to finally have a good transfer of this film. Even if you are not a big Dune fan, let me tell you that worth the price alone are some totally awesome behind the scenes footage and candid shots of Lynch with long hair and big sunglasses. Also in this edition, it features many drawings Lynch did for the film. I can now see why Lynch insists that his Deleted Scenes are released complete. The Dune Deleted Scenes were great to see, but could have been so much better if they took the time to restore them and properly score them. Lets keep our fingers crossed that the next Deleted Scenes released from a Lynch film get the five star treatment thy deserve.
Sweden Online Store Reports Season 2 in November
One of Swedens Online Retailers, CDON.com has update their site last month and now lists Twin Peaks: Season 2 on DVD for a November 2006 release. This sounds about right, as Lynch will not be ready to supervise the transfers until after he is done shooting and editing INLAND EMPIRE, which he is still in the process of shooting as you read this.

Dune DVD US Release Only 27 Days Away and Lost Highway Non-News
While we still can’t confirm the actual specs for the Dune DVD release (they seem too good to be true), I recently received an email from Universal stating that they are sticking to the specs that are listed on their Website. If it’s true, then we will be in for a treat. Also, when asking about Lost Highway, here is the response I got:
No revised date has been announced for the release of “Lost Highway.”
