‘Twin Peaks’: Matthew Lillard on His Breakout Role and Joining David Lynch’s Dysfunctional Family

26 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last week’s premiere of “Twin Peaks” brought with it no shortage of surprises, but here’s probably the most unpredictable one we witnessed: a captivating performance by Matthew Lillard as William Hastings, a high school principal accused of murder, whose wife is tied up in the supernatural mystery surrounding Agent Dale Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) evil doppleganger.

Lillard’s career began in the early ’90s with roles in “Serial Mom” and “Hackers,” and his reputation is definitely rooted in some variation of comedy, from horror comedies like “Scream” to the live-action “Scooby-Doo” films (and subsequent animated projects, for which Lillard still provides the voice of Shaggy).

Twin Peaks,” while never lacking in funny moments, marks a bit of a departure for the character actor. That might be why, at the premiere last Friday, »

David Lynch Is Not Retiring From Filmmaking After All, But His Future Still Remains Unclear

26 May 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Lynch fans went into mourning earlier this month when the director revealed to the Sydney Morning Herald that his filmmaking career was over. When asked if “Inland Empire” was his last movie, the director responded with a point blank “yes,” and he cited the dominance of blockbusters and the growing lack of interest in art house films as the main reason why.

“Things changed a lot,” Lynch told the newspaper. “So many films were not doing well at the box office even though they might have been great films and the things that were doing well at the box office weren’t the things that I would want to do.”

Even though we’re lucky enough to have “Twin Peaks” back in our lives this summer, the thought of never seeing a new Lynch movie on the »

‘Twin Peaks’: Why It Shouldn’t Have Changed Its Opening Titles

25 May 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s more than a few cast members from the original “Twin Peaks” who did not return for the latest batch of episodes that dropped late Sunday night. Some have retired from acting, while a number of others are memorialized in the episodes’ closing scrolls.

But there’s one non-holdover from the original “Twin Peaks” run that might indicate the biggest change in what the show has become: the opening credits bird.

Read More: ‘Twin Peaks’ Bible: Here’s IndieWire’s Full Coverage of the David Lynch Revival

When Showtime unveiled the first look at the opening credits, gone was the unassuming footage of a quiet Washington logging town, replaced by a more overtly ominous intro. While the updated opening credits prime the audience for an aggressively weirder spin on this otherworldly murder mystery, it loses some of the subtle punch and the humble, twisted-fairytale rhythms that used to kick off each installment. »

'Twin Peaks': A Deep Dive Into William Hastings

23 May 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the two-hour series premiere of Showtime's Twin Peaks: The Return.]   The introduction of William Hastings (Matthew Lillard) in the Twin Peaks revival poses a very interesting new possibility. Could it be that Killer Bob and Mike aren't the only two demonic entities possessing people and killing in the Twin Peaks universe?   The murder of Ruth Davenport and discovery of her severed heard, along with a body that was definitely not hers, was a graphic way to kick off William's story. With his fingerprints in her apartment and »

Twin Peaks Season 3 Episodes 1 & 2 Review

23 May 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Twin Peaks Season 3 – Episodes 1 & 2…

Just over a quarter of a century – 26 years ago – Twin Peaks left our televisions with the deceased Laura Palmer informing both Special Agent Dale Cooper, along with the viewers of the show, that she will see us again in twenty-five years.  We didn’t expect this.  We received Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, a film which charted the final few days of Laura Palmer’s life (today people would dub it a prequel to the series) but we never actually expected Twin Peaks to return for a third season. But it has.

Episodes 1 and 2 were shown consecutively with no break bringing us the viewers into this more modern world of Twin Peaks.  If you’ve never seen an episode of Twin Peaks before and were hoping that this ‘return’ may actually be a ‘soft reboot’, expecting to be treated to perhaps a catch »

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 1 & 2 Recap: Do Not Drop Up

22 May 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.The world's gone mad. Fortunately for FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), he's been able to sit out most of the real-life insanity of the last 25 years. Unfortunately—as surely known by those viewers familiar with Mark Frost and David Lynch's singular television series Twin Peaks, which returned Sunday, May 21st for a limited, 18-episode run on Showtime—that's because he's been trapped in the unearthly purgatory known as the Black Lodge, all while his devilish doppelgänger, a mortal manifestation of the murderous spirit known as Killer Bob, runs amok among mankind.Already it feels like I'm speaking in tongues. But if Twin Peaks and Lynch (who directed, co-wrote, co-edited, and designed the sound for all of these new episodes) have taught us anything, »

‘Twin Peaks: Season 3 – Episodes 1 & 2′ Review

22 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Twin Peaks is finally back, and yes as almost every review is probably saying, it is worth the wait. What we have though is something a little different from the Twin Peaks we know. This is David Lynch giving us his full vision, and while special, don’t expect to understand everything you see. In many ways though, that is the point of the show.

When the Log Lady’s (Catherine E. Coulson) has a message for Deputy Hark (Michael Horse) the case of Agent Cooper’s (Kyle MacLachlan) is examined. Is it time for the mystery of Cooper’s disappearance to be finally solved and could he be returning?

Presenting the first two episodes together is the perfect way to bring back Twin Peaks. It feels like an event, and for fans it is an event that has been waited for, for a long time. We finally get to see where Cooper is, »

TV Review: David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’

21 May 2017 10:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The stature of “Twin Peaks,” David Lynch’s two-season surreal murder mystery that ran on ABC in the early ‘90s, is such that its modern-day reboot almost defies interpretation. Showtime’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” picks up the story of Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) 25 years later, and attempts to be an homage, a sequel, and a standalone story. The unique nature of this revival is overshadowed by the fact that the show itself was always a surprising, weird gem in the otherwise predictable stable of broadcast television programming. It’s hard to know whether it is more surprising that “Twin Peaks” ever existed or caught in the first place, or that 27 years after its cancellation, it has returned on premium cable with so much of the original cast and crew preserved. Lynch brought auteur-ish filmmaking to television, which elevated the medium for many viewers. Now »

'Twin Peaks' Returns as Confusing and Terrifying as Ever -- Here's What Happened in the Premiere!

21 May 2017 9:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen Sunday's two-hour Twin Peaks premiere. ​

Twin Peaks returned to TV ​on ​Sunday ​after 27 years and it was every bit as scary, twisted and confusing as the original -- though we expected nothing less from David Lynch.

In the two-hour premiere, there were two distinct threads happening: one with the show's original characters and one featuring new faces and new mysteries. They eventually intersected, but for much of the first hour it was a lot of introducing seemingly unrelated things, most of which were happening outside the titular small Washington town.

'Twin Peaks' Season Premiere Recap: Into the Black

It's happening again.

It's the first time we've see the Twin Peaks logo and heard the opening notes of Angelo Badalamenti's unforgettable theme song in 25 years. When it happens, we're looking right at the face of Laura Palmer. Director David Lynch and his co-creator and co-writer Mark Frost could have chosen pretty much any image to pair with the kick-off of the show's almost manically anticipated return. But after a cold-open flashback that recycled footage from the original series – the sequence from the series finale in which she informs »

On May 9th, Scream Factory is going to remind viewers why you don't dare cross Beverly Sutphin with their Collector's Edition Blu-ray release of John Waters' Serial Mom, and we have high-def clips and a trailer that tease what to expect from the new home media release.

Along with her doting husband Eugene (Sam Waterston) and two children, Misty (Ricki Lake) and Chip (Matthew Lillard), she lives a life straight out of Good Housekeeping.

A Hilarious Video Essay on the Movie “She’s All That”

24 April 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you look back in the Pantheon of teenage movies from the 90s, She’s all That is Way up there. First of all, let’s get into the obscene amount of famous people cast in this movie. Freddie Prinze Jr, Rachael Leigh Cook, Matthew Lillard, Paul Walker, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Kevin Pollak, Anna Paquin, Kieran Culkin, Usher Raymond, Lil’ Kim, and Gabrielle Union.  So we’ve got that out of the way. Now let’s get into the film itself.  It’s absurd.  Mainly because Rachel Leigh Cook is portrayed as this weird, unattractive character which from the get go makes you just as

Bosch Season 3 Review

13 April 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

There are two questions a viewer might ask going into the third season of Bosch. The first is what Bosch offers that other television shows about homicide detectives do not, and the second is what a third season of Bosch offers that the first two seasons did not.

The first of these answers comes easily: Bosch offers one of the most patient, intelligent, intriguing police procedural narratives on television, eschewing cliffhangers and easy answers while embracing slow pacing, character development, and escalating tension. Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) is a compelling character, a far-from-perfect father chased by his childhood demons. The directing, the acting, and the writing all hold attention and merit high ratings. Even the cinematography deserves praise. Unlike many other mystery shows – think Foyle’s War or Sherlock – Bosch does not fall apart with hokiness when it comes time for a shootout or car chase. »
