Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

Is the orb scene the same thing as Freddie's fight scene? :) One other thing about the latter. The stage set looks closer to an office the way you would picture it in an IKEA store, meant to sell furniture, than the real TP sheriff's station. The stage sets from the original always felt very warm to...

Re: Freddie's fight scene in part 17

I am seeing some comments saying it was "meant to be uninmpressive"... Come on :)

That's just blind Lynch worship, finding ways to justify *anything*.

Freddie's fight scene in part 17

With some time having passed, what are your thoughts on this scene? Personally, the first time I saw it I couldn't believe that the monumental killing of Bob played out on an almost parodic B horror movie level. It was sad. Watching it again it's perhaps a bit stronger but so empty on atmosphere tha...

Re: Black Lodge/White Lodge mythology

I am just rewatching TR in its entirety and it didn't strike me on the first viewing, but I now just noticed a striking similarity between Jack Rabbit's Palace and the large rock in the big sea that Cooper falls down onto. Anyone else thought of that? :)

Re: The slow pace of The Return

And what about Jerry Horne? His interplay with Ben brilliant in the first season. Now reduced to a non-speaking character almost, looking at his foot with despair in the woods. Not funny, just frustrating. Almost as if a random film student was to offer his/her take on where Jerry Horne was 25 years...

Re: The slow pace of The Return

I also feel Inland Empire's 3 hrs go by fairly quickly. Something about that also draws you in. But the amount of time spent on certain characters in TR is just too much. The detectives trying to get to the bottom of Dougie's missing car... Slow paced *and* uninteresting somehow. And that's a first ...

Re: The slow pace of The Return

The "Got A Light?" part is an exception though, in my opinion. That feels very Lynch all of a sudden and really pulls you in, old style. Just because it's captivating. But coming back to the topic of Dougie. Kyle M did a good job with him but all was somehow said after 2 parts. And then he...

Re: The slow pace of The Return

Lynch's other work doesn't come across as slow paced to me. I think one of the reasons TR feels slow paced is because many of the storylines simply aren't captivating enough. Forster as the sheriff, Dougie outstaying his welcome etc.

The slow pace of The Return

Does anyone feel there's anything good coming from the fact that The Return is so slow paced? I am rewatching it for the first time in its entirety, and although it feels slightly stronger than on the first viewing, it strikes me how it's so *very* slow paced. The original was not like that, at all,...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Also, regarding the glove guy killing off Bob, isn't it the opposite of the mood built up in the original? Should the scene be viewed as a parody or an art installation? More like film school student than the Lynch of old?

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Isn't the big difference between the original and S3 that you became invested in the characters of the former, but almost not at all with those in S3?

Why so little of Grace Zabriskie?

Zabriskie turned in the most chilling/horrifying performance among the characters in S3. So, why use her so little?

A let down on the same level as almost leaving Ray Wise out completely.

The Return - too many redudant storylines?

Although it's disappointing that the warmth and small town feel of the original has been all but absent in the Return (Lynch being too unfiltered?), I think this is still a lesser problem. The Return's biggest flaw is that it could probably have been cut down in half without losing much of its impac...

Re: Twin Peaks Return: The Profoundly Disappointed Support Group (SPOILERS)

Focus on the art not the artist right? The closing musical segments have never struck me as being promotional showcases for the bands, rather a way of creating a mood -> art. Just goes to show we all view things differently. They were more effective in the first few episodes though when they felt &...
