"Twin Peaks," Episode 7 Recap: …And That's Enough Said About That

20 June 2017 7:20 AM, 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.So that's how David Lynch does an info dump. First, with a cheeky, knowing scene featuring the brothers Horne: "Jerry, what's going on?" asks Ben (Richard Beymer) after his cannabis-infused sibling (David Patrick Kelly) phones him from the woods. "I think I'm high!…I don't know where I am!" Jerry screams, perhaps speaking for a good subsection of the Twin Peaks revival audience, who have, over the six prior installments, been given only glimpses of a larger picture. Narrative momentum comes in asides; the more prevalent longueurs are reserved for atmosphere and mood, for full immersion in apparent stasis.Part 7 shakes things up, following the brotherly freak-out with several story reveals that come in quick succession. But there's a niggling sense throughout all the »

Newswire: Ruh-roh: James Gunn says his Scooby-Doo movie was originally rated R

16 June 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This week marks the 15th anniversary of Scooby-Doo, a landmark of modern cinema that definitely earns the title, “A film that was made in 2002.” To commemorate the moment, Scooby-Doo screenwriter (and writer-director of noted indie films Guardians Of The Galaxy Vols. 1 and 2) James Gunn has posted a lengthy remembrance on Facebook, discussing the friends he made from the experience (Linda Cardellini, Matthew Lillard), late-night games of Celebrity with actual celebrities, and the joy of having a hit film that guaranteed him work for years to come. (And bought him a house. That’s probably a nice memory, too.)

But one of the first things he cops to is the admission that the children’s movie was originally rated R. Not only that, but the women in the starring roles had their cleavage CGI-ed away, “so as not to offend.” Fans immediately responded, wanting to know both the ...

Blu-ray Review: Serial Mom Collector’s Edition

15 June 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Is Serial Mom John Waters’ best movie?

On the bonus features of the new Scream Factory Blu-ray, the legendary writer/director says that it is. And who am I to disagree? While I think Hairspray is still his most commercially accessible film—there’s a reason it was turned into a hit broadway musical, then adapted for both the big and small screen—Serial Mom is, like Brian De Palma’s adaptation of The Untouchables, a brilliant marriage of a commercial aesthetic and the filmmaker’s true voice. It’s a movie that can appeal to everyone while still being very much a John Waters movie, and for that alone it must be considered a huge success.

Kathleen Turner plays Beverly Sutphin, an idealized 1950s-style housewife with the perfect American family: her husband (Sam Waterston) is a successful dentist and her two teenage kids (Matthew Lillard and Ricki Lake) are happy and well-adjusted. »

'Twin Peaks': How Michael Horse Learned to Embrace David Lynch's Mysterious World

14 June 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers through the first six installments of Showtime's Twin Peaks: The Return.]

Six hours into the new Twin Peaks, there's still no clear indication of why Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is now inhabiting the life of a doppelgänger named Dougie Jones. There's no telling what that ethereal purple ocean was all about. We still don't know why William Hastings (Matthew Lillard) can't remember murdering his lover. Really, we're no closer to comprehending virtually any of the mysterious happenings the David Lynch and Mark Frost series has lobbed in the air thus far »

‘Twin Peaks’: Naomi Watts Reunited With David Lynch After 15 Years, And It Was An Acting Powerhouse

30 May 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Four episodes in to “Twin Peaks: The Return” and one thing has become quite clear: David Lynch and Mark Frost are having no problem delivering some of the series’ most memorable scenes to date. From those vicious glass box murders to Agent Cooper, dazed from spending 25 years in the Black Lodge, making a fortune off slot machines at a Las Vegas casino (“Helloooo!” is already an instant classic “Twin Peaks” quote), the series is operating at the height of its powers right now. But while the revival has been an embarrassment of riches from scene to scene, one moment that has gotten lost in the conversation is the introduction of Janey-e Jones in Episode 4.

‘Twin Peaks’ Guide to Returning Characters and What Clues They Offer Parts 3 & 4 (An Ongoing List)

29 May 2017 5:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Twin Peaks: The Return” episodes as they’re released weekly.]

With a huge cast and 25 years intervening between the original “Twin Peaks” and “The Return” on Showtime, familiar faces may not be all that familiar anymore. While Parts 1 and 2 reintroduced many of the main returning characters, whom you can reference here, the next two episodes that aired Sunday trickled in a few more.

Here’s a breakdown of who’s who from the original series that showed up in Episodes 3 and 4:

Major Garland Briggs (Don S. Davis)

The Air Force officer had been part of a classified operation that was investigating the White Lodge and was the father of Bobby Briggs (see below). Although actor Don S. Davis died in 2008, an image of Briggs’ floating head is seen while Agent Cooper is in space. As the head, superimposed over the space landscape, »

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

28 May 2017 8:00 PM, 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.

Read More: ‘Twin Peaks’ Guide to Returning Characters and How They’re Helping – or Hurting – Cooper: Parts 1 & 2 (An Ongoing List)

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, »

‘Twin Peaks’ Episode 4 is a Gift Filled with Answers — and A Warning About Wanting More

28 May 2017 6:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the minds of its viewers, “Twin Peaks,” like many TV shows, is defined by its creator and its lead. There’s a magic combination of those two names when seen together: “The Sopranos” has David Chase and James Gandolfini. “Breaking Bad” has Vince Gilligan and Bryan Cranston. “The Leftovers” has Damon Lindelof and Carrie Coon. Ok, Ms. Coon ties with Justin Theroux, similar to how David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are co-leads (and requisite parts) in Chris Carter’s “The X-Files,” but the point remains: A creator and a lead are great signifiers for television fans, and their presence carries meaning.

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for “Twin Peaks” Episode 4, “Part 4.”]

Turns out, it carries even more meaning when you see them together, on screen, in character, having a conversation. Thus was the case for David Lynch and Kyle MacLachlan at the end of “Twin Peaks” “Part 4,” the most recent episode of the new season. In the final scene, »

David Lynch Guides Us Through the First Four Episodes of ‘Twin Peaks’: ‘Ideas Take You to Places’

27 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While the rest of us were watching “Twin Peaks” on Sunday night, David Lynch was at home building a table in his woodshop. He spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the first four parts of his and Mark Frost’s revival series the next day, offering a slightly more candid take on his approach than he’s known for.

“It’s not whether you like something. Ideas take you to places,” Lynch said of the fact that much of this new “Twin Peaks” doesn’t actually take place in Twin Peaks. “There were just things going on in places other than Twin Peaks. Sometimes you get a need to travel from Los Angeles to New York for a meeting. So there you go.” That said, Lynch also assured readers that Twin Peaks is “a place that is, »

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.

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

[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.

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.

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 »
