If FWWM was Lynch disappearing up his own arse, it was at least well executed. Or, in other words, it was self indulgence done the right way.

 

Obvs, I have some different views on S03. No need to go there again. But I just like to say that FWWM is a bad comparison for S03. FWWM doesn't have the flaws I see in S03. It's a different beast, imo.

This scene really predicted 2020 energy

Chris Issak was uber-wooden in FWWM, with a lot of scenes i've tried to focus in on the other characters & dialog, rather than let his lack of presence distract from all the good gear, the deleted scenes showed sequences that in my humble opinion should deffo have got a look in during the final editing, this one being a prime example

 

 

everyone has their own tastes with art, so to each their own

a distracting lack of presence sounds almost paradoxical (lynchesque even?) but i see what you mean :D ... anyway i would have taken him (and / or sam) anyday before the fucking mitchum brothers, freddie or rebecca...

 

also: how is annie? oh well...

 

alsoso: yeah that scene's pretty badass, still haven't seen the missing pieces, wish there was a standalone release.

Well paint me pink if I got it backwards, but I found FWWM very solid and clear. The only thing that confused me was how would this fit into the final sequence of episodes; meaning that if you screened the FWWM at the beginning, everyone would know what happened and S01 wouldn't make much sense watching apart from expanding the whole story. FWWM is a compressed version of S01 + extra.

If anything was disappearing up his arse was S03.

^ True, chronologically they don't really sit together well.  And it then also depends which version of the pilot you watch.

What I was aiming at earlier is that S3 may take a couple years time -and rewatch sessions- before anyone can really tell for themselves if it actually holds up against previous Twin Peaks. Just like FWWM had to cool down for a while before many people came to appreciate it. 

 

Then again, 120 mins are easier to revisit than 18 hours.

[...] freddie [...]

 

come to think of it why even arbitrarily introduce some cockney dude with super human strength (who supposedly gets directed by the fireman the most excplicit and therefore inconsistent way) to kill bob when we already had glorious nadine? like mr. c could have soiled her drapes with the brains of some victim and in a rage she punches BOB out of him and into oblivion, BÄM! talk about missed opportunities :P. according to this http://ew.com/tv/2017/09/15/david-lynch-twin-peaks-finale/ he was literally just some random idea that had been lying around for a while. it's exactly this kind of inspiration over craftsmanship issue i think he used to get down better / more balanced.

i'm sure the green glove dude is Lynch's jab at superhero movies (green glove = hulk). that guy just comes out of nowhere, has some ridiculous origin story, then just wipes out the main bad guy with a gimmicky superpower. i have no doubt that Lynch hates superhero films & especially how they have taken over mainstream cinema for years now. he also wraps up the story in such a hokey, fake way, bringing attention to its artifice, before crossing over into the 'real' world with episode 18. illustrating how all those characters 'live inside a dream'.

brilliantly sarcastic cultural commentary whose time had finally come or just the tacking on of some old random idea that had been conveniently lying around?

 

or maybe both... or even neither?

 

or should we ask? oh wait...

anyway if it was the former i still think he could have made it using what was at hand, too, but yeah. at least the character was mildly amusing as opposed to, say, diane *ugh*. yeah we get it, dern's your muse, but the way he tried to inject some life into her with that forced grumpiness... plain awkward. (the confrontation scene with mr. c was quite intense, tho.)

 

 

Lynch.lynch.lynch... Mark frost?

 

took the back seat for the worse? haven't read the book. is green glove guy (ggg) in there?

For a sec thought those were christmas tree decorations. But apparently, some people enjoy walking around as decorated xmas trees as well. Would enjoy them more in a tree though. Out of sight preferably.
