What is detestable about it? It's just an idea about art and creation and storytelling and drives home the idea of living in a bottomless dream, which is central to most of Lynch's work. It's not an actual plot point, just another layer of many in the text. With how much Tarantino calls attention to other films in his work, I actually think he'd quite like this idea.
I guess I want Twin Peaks, not Inception. I don't know, I don't mean that I hate the idea as such, it's just not the level I want TP to work on. And in Ep14 the way it was said was like, wow this is so profound. It just reminded me of someone saying, 'What if we all live in a computer simulation?' and thinking they've said something brilliant.
I'm not going to fall out with someone who loves Spring Breakers and Enter the Void.
We are not getting Inception when we watch this new show, that is an insult to Lynch: Christopher Nolan is a wannabe surrealist (no slam on Nolan, he's a great filmmaker overall, but he doesn't do surrealism very well IMHO).
But overall, your complaint here strikes me as somewhat odd: The idea of living inside a dream came directly from Fire Walk With Me, and most of Lynch's work since FWWM are interpreted by fans as showing alternate realities, potentially dream and/or fantasy realities- Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive and (from what I understand, still have not seen it) Inland Empire. The Straight Story is the exception.
And of course, even the original Twin Peaks was built on a dream. In fact, the simplest interpretation of the European pilot when viewed in isolation is that the final 20 minutes (including the boiler room scene with Bob and the Red Room scene) constitutes Cooper's dream.
Is it future, or is it past? Is it a dream, or is it 'real'? If those questions don't titillate you, don't stir your imagination, Twin Peaks is probably not for you.
I know but here we're stepping outside of Twin Peaks and talking about LYNCH being the dreamer aren't we? That's the bit I have a particular issue with. Lynch doesn't exist within TP.
I would have agreed that comparing Lynch with Nolan was an insult to Lynch before The Return. At this point it's an insult to Nolan.
