David Lynch Playlist: The Director’s Favorite Bands and Singers Perfect for ‘Twin Peaks’

20 July 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If someone found a TV network willing to give them 18 hours of original programming all under their domain, it makes sense that person would want to bring a bunch of their favorite bands along with them.

Over the run of “Twin Peaks: The Return,” David Lynch has used the close of every episode as a showcase for past collaborators. Some of these acts have been household names – who could forget Nine Inch Nails rounding out the infamous Part 8 – while others have been more under-the-radar favorites.

These are artists that not only fit thematically with each individual episode, but also hew close to Lynch’s personal fandoms. The director has been open about it in the past, including his appreciation for Au Revoir Simone. Moby, for whom Lynch directed a music video in 2009, popped up this past week and longtime collaborator Chrysta Bell recorded multiple albums with Lynch before taking »

The 50 Best Films of the ’90s, From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Groundhog Day’

14 July 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The ’90s were a moment of tremendous upheaval in international cinema.  Here in America, the revolt against Hollywood’s bland output a decade earlier had resulted in a small window in which American independent cinema became commercially viable and started seeping into more mainstream fare. Young and exciting directors, most of whom are now A-listers, were given resources and able to make multiple films. Meanwhile, Hollywood’s big commercial films were in the hands of directors like Spielberg, Bigelow, Verhoeven, Woo and De Palma, as franchises continued to be invented rather than recycled.

On the international scene, the Iranian New Wave unloaded a treasure trove of new films, the great run of Hong Kong cinema was peaking and maturing, three great autuers completely upended how films in Taiwan were made, and a pair of Danish directors with a dogma wanted to change how every film was made.

"Twin Peaks," Episode 9 Recap: Whatever This Is

11 July 2017 7:36 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.There's a brief, very beautiful moment in Part 7 of the new Twin Peaks, during the scene in which hotelier Benjamin Horne (Richard Beymer) and his secretary Beverly Paige (Ashley Judd) are investigating a strange sound emanating from the walls of the Great Northern. Ben points in the direction that he thinks the soft, soothing tone is coming from, and for a second he seems to be pointing right at the camera—past it, really…toward our world, at those of us on the other side of the fiction/fact divide. A blink-and-you'll-miss-it breach, but it lays some subtle groundwork for what follows: The aesthetically and thematically provocative Part 8 fitted the Twin Peaks mythos into our very real history of atomic destruction. And this week's »

Twin Peaks: Who are Phillip Jeffries and Blue Rose?

28 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It doesn't seem possible, but Twin Peaks gets even weirder and more bizarre with episodes three and four. However, beyond the "normal" David Lynchian aspects that will all make sense as the show unfolds (or not), there are a couple references that may have had you wracking your brain to remember just exactly what they mean in the Twin Peaks universe: Phillip Jeffries and Blue Rose. If those mentions leave you a little befuddled, we're here to help. Phillip Jeffries Understanding this reference is based entirely on having seen the 1992 Twin Peaks prequel movie, Fire Walk With Me. In the film, Jeffries is an FBI agent played by David Bowie. (It was rumored that Bowie was going to shoot some scenes for Twin Peaks: The Return but didn't get a chance to before his untimely death in early 2016.) In the film, Jeffries is an agent who suddenly appears to Gordon Cole »

'Twin Peaks' Revival Delves Deeper Into 'Fire Walk With Me' -- and It's Absolutely Insane (Hi Naomi Watts!)

28 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Woo boy, Twin Peaks fans.

If you thought the first two hours of the Twin Peaks revival were weird, you haven't really seen anything yet.

Let's start with what is easily the David Lynch-iest sequence of the show so far.

The Purple Spaceship

After being expelled from the Black Lodge and taking a quick pit stop in the glass box in New York City, real Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) finds himself in a weird purple spaceship thing with a woman who is listed in the credits as Naido (Nae Yuuki). Her eyes are melted shut, which lends some weight to the idea that eyes are important in Twin Peaks -- Ruth Davenport (Mary Stofle) was missing an eye and it also appeared that Evil Cooper (MacLachlan) shot Phyllis Hastings (Cornelia Guest) through the eye.

The woman eventually disappears and Cooper encounters the shadowy head of Major Garland Briggs (Don S. Davis), who utters the phrase "blue rose »

Notes On The Breaking Point, Alien: Covenant And The Return Of Twin Peaks

21 May 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

God bless the Criterion Collection for their forthcoming Blu-ray of a nifty 2K restoration of The Breaking Point (1950), the second swipe at Ernest Hemingway’s novel To Have and Have Not, which is on the company’s release schedule for August 2017. You may have heard of the first version… Bogie, Bacall, Hawks, “You know how to whistle, don’t ya?” Remember that one? Well, this one, the story of a down-on-his-luck charter boat captain Harry Morgan (John Garfield) who gets manipulated into a deadly smuggling run to help make ends meet, is directed by Michael Curtiz, and it trades Hawks’ larky, Casablanca-derived vibe for something decidedly darker, a daylight-splashed noir that somehow ferrets out all the chiaroscuro shadows in Hemingway’s material nonetheless. Throughout The Breaking Point, but especially in the movie’s riveting second half when Morgan allows himself to get roped into a second, even more dangerous scheme, »

David Lynch on 'Twin Peaks' Revival: 'The Woods Are Full of Mystery'

17 May 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The season premiere of Twin Peaks is days away, and there is hardly any information about its episodes available. The synopsis for the first two episodes quizzically reads, "The stars turn and a time presents itself." Naturally, this is exactly what filmmaker David Lynch wants.

"These days, movie trailers practically tell the whole story," he says in his nasal, matter-of-fact, plainspoken manner. "I think it's really harmful. For me, personally, I don't want to know anything when I go into a theater. I like to discover it, get into that world, »

‘Big Little Lies’ Finale: Director Jean-Marc Vallée on the Long-Awaited Answer to the Mystery

2 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched the finale of “Big Little Lies,” which aired April 2.

The mystery is finally solved: Not only do we know who did it, we also know who the victim is, too. And we know who the father is of Jane’s son, Ziggy — the man who assaulted her that horrible night seven years ago. And thanks to director Jean-Marc Vallee’s visual storytelling style, it was all delivered without a single word spoken.

It was justice a long time coming for Celeste’s abusive husband, Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) who suffered a fatal fall at the hands of Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz). The women bonded together to keep the secret, refusing to tell the authorities the truth — but they’re each finally unburdened of the painful, deep secrets they’ve been keeping all series long.

Vallée and writer David E. Kelley nudged the significance of the ending to be a slightly »

Newswire: Showtime will stream Fire Walk With Me ahead of the Twin Peaks revival

1 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Grab your garmonbozia and prepare yourself for David Bowie’s Southern drawl: Showtime has announced that it’ll soon be streaming David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. The frequently confusing (and critically contentious) prequel to Lynch’s frequently confusing hit TV show, Fire Walk With Me recounts the last week of teen beauty queen (and eventual plastic-wrapped murder victim) Laura Palmer’s life.

Showtime will start streaming the film on March 1, ahead of the May 21 arrival of Lynch’s revival of the show. The film stars the show’s Sheryl Lee, Kyle MacLachlan, and Ray Wise, plus some suitably weird appearances from Chris Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland, and the aforementioned Bowie. Also, it’s full of spoilers for Twin Peaks proper, so if you’re still getting caught up on the series—also streaming via Showtime—steer clear until you’re done.

Coming Distractions: Rachel Weisz plays a wicked game in this trailer for My Cousin Rachel

25 January 2017 1:25 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Daphne du Maurier’s 1951 novel My Cousin Rachel is a mystery-filled romance, with upper-class British people wondering just how trustworthy other upper-class British people are when one of their own becomes hopelessly infatuated with his cousin, a woman who may or may not have murdered her previous beau. This trailer for Roger Michell’s adaptation of the book leans harder on the romance angle than anything else, but the cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” and all of the yelling going on make it pretty clear that there’s some heavy stuff going on behind the sweeping vistas and outdoor sex. The film stars Rachel Weisz as the eponymous Rachel, as well as Sam Claflin, Holliday Grainger, and Iain Glen.

My Cousin Rachel will be in theaters on July 14, 2017.

Rachel Weisz is a Saucy Minx in New Trailer for Daphne du Maurier Adaptation ‘My Cousin Rachel’

25 January 2017 12:31 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin court disgrace (and each other) in the first trailer for Roger Michell’s “My Cousin Rachel,”  an adaptation of the 1951 novel by Daphne du Maurier, most famous for penning “Rebecca” and “The Birds.” A lesser known work, the last time “My Cousin Rachel” made it to the big screen was in 1952, starring Olivia de Havilland and Richard Burton.

The novel centers around a young man named Philip (Claflin) as he plots against his mysterious and beautiful cousin, Rachel Ashley (Weisz), whom he suspects of poisoning his guardian. Philip falls under the beautiful Rachel’s spell, losing his resolve as his infatuation grows — and maybe even endangering his own life in the process.

A Forbidden Romance Blooms In First Trailer For My Cousin Rachel

25 January 2017 7:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin indulge in a forbidden romance in the stirring first trailer for Roger Michell’s period drama, My Cousin Rachel.

Set against a suitably shrill cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” the snippet above introduces us to Claflin’s dashing Englishman Philip, who seeks out his distant cousin Rachel to enact revenge. Those feelings of contempt and loathing soon dissolve before his very eyes when he comes into contact with Rachel Weisz’s titular, alluring lead, sparking a forbidden romance that ruffles feathers all across the West County. Lifting inspiration from Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name, there’s a touch of Jane Austin to be found in My Cousin Rachel. Couple this with the gothic aesthetic and Michell may well have a sleeper hit on his hands.

Here’s the official logline:
