Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

Lynch’s “happy” endings always intrigued me. For many, the main character seemingly finds peace in some sort of afterlife only after choosing death/suicide (Eraserhead, Elephant Man, FWWM, INLAND EMPIRE). I don’t think most people would typically consider that a traditionally happy ending conceptual...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

Oh. BTW, “turkey in the corn” is a reference to a classic blues song by Lightnin’ Hopkins: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m2yd3DRhAI0 Not sure if that’s common knowledge or not. Or if it makes the scene better or worse. I guess it arguably makes the dialogue less scattershot in some way but also in a...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

I always remember the Lynch/Engels origin story (per Engels): they were supposed to meet up at 2:30 and Engels said, “That’s when the Chinese go to the dentist!” (“Tooth hurty”) Lynch thought that was hilarious and they became “Mike and Ike.” There seems to a dopey quality to some of the writing the...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

That's what I'm saying, what makes it so odd - the commitment, the honesty, the tragedy, the tears...all in service to a line that can easily be seen as utterly ridiculous. That's what I mean about how they're going for something that almost challenges emotional response, whether intentionally or o...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

The entire turkey in the corn exchange, including gobble gobble, is what I was referring to. Very tricky stuff. There seems to be some extreme level of...I don't even know how to describe it. They're going for something there, something obviously awful on some level, parodic on another, challenging...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

Just to add to the above: looking at the film now. The camera is on James (reverse on Sheryl, out of of focus and mostly out of frame) for “turkey in the corn.” Her line delivery is adequate. “Gobble gobble” breaks my fucking heart. Has no right to be as good as it is. You can attack the writing if ...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

Heh, I almost guessed the lines! I went with “gobble gobble” though, as opposed to the tee-up line you mentioned. I mostly “blame” the writing for both—if we can agree that there is blame to be placed (and I’m as mixed as you on that front), but I don’t think anyone could have done any better than L...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

It’s difficult for me to think of another film made within my lifetime that has undergone such a complex critical evolution (on both a macro and micro level) as FWWM. My respect for it has for sure grown and changed over the years. As I’ve said before, the baggage of shoe-horning in the Theresa Bank...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

It’s a different studio from the original series. They rented the warehouse because it was cheap and they were a “guerrilla” production as Mark has described it. Thanks for the insight! I wonder if that was to do with the budget ABC gave them - they could spread it out more that way, or if the netw...

Similar to why Lynch shot INLAND EMPIRE in a warehouse as opposed to an established studio lot that would cost more (other than the few sc...

Re: Season 4? Or is it over after this?

I saw it after I'd posted it. Figured someone would mention it lol. Haha. Kind of weird/funny to think about Lynch and Richard Lewis being in the same room together. Curb Your Enthusiasm would take an interesting turn if they had David Lynch as a guest - or even got him to direct an episode or two....

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

I guess what bugged me about that comment was a defensive feeling for Sheryl (who obviously is a complete stranger to me, so maybe that’s a little silly...and I’m sure she wasn’t reading a.t.t-p. anyway). But I’ve heard her talk about how much that performance took out of her in many interviews (as ...

Re: Alt.Tv.TwinPeaks - Twin Peaks Usenet Archive

Haha, the debate over the existence of Fumio Yamaguchi. At least one guy saw through it right away, but encountered some pushback: https://alttvtwinpeaks.com/ep12/19901031-re_%20mr_%20tojimura-212616 I love that, pre-IMDb, people going through their old Martin/Porter guides trying to find him!!
