"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 »

Brigsby Bear Trailer Gets Trippy with Mark Hamill and Kyle Mooney

13 June 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the first trailer, poster and photos for the indie sensation Brigsby Bear, which the studio quickly picked up after its debut at the Sundance Film Festival in January. While we don't get to see much from this trailer, it certainly paints an intriguing picture of this world, which is seemingly set in some sort of post-apocalyptic desert landscape, where one family has managed to survive, portrayed by Mark Hamill, Kyle Mooney and Jane Adams. While there is certainly much more to explore than this first trailer has to offer, it certainly presents an intriguing look into this unique world.

Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children's TV show produced for an audience of one: James (Kyle Mooney). When the show abruptly ends, James's life changes forever, he sets out to finish the story himself and must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about. »

First Trailer for Sundance Breakout 'Brigsby Bear' Starring Kyle Mooney

13 June 2017 11:57 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"May our minds be stronger tomorrow." Sony Classics has revealed the first trailer for indie film Brigsby Bear, one of the breakout hits of the Sundance Film Festival this year. The film stars Kyle Mooney (from SNL) as a kid who has grown up locked in an underground bunker, watching one and only one TV show over-and-over - called Brigsby Bear. One day everything stops, and he has to deal with the real world. That's all I'll say, because this film is best experienced without knowing much more than that. The cast includes Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Ryan Simpkins, Andy Samberg, Michaela Watkins, Jane Adams, and Chance Crimin. The film played at Sundance and Cannes (read my glowing review) and it's a special film, for many reasons, but most of all it's a lover letter to the power of storytelling. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Dave McCary's Brigsby Bear, »

"Twin Peaks," Episode 5 Recap: I Love How You Love Me

6 June 2017 3:19 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.The key image in Part 5 of the revived Twin Peaks is of a woman in ecstasy. Recall, however, the subtitle that series co-creator/director David Lynch appended to his thorny 2006 masterpiece Inland Empire: "A Woman in Trouble." The line separating rapture and anguish is a blurry one, especially for Lynch's ladies, who are as likely to end up exquisitely chiseled corpses (the ubiquitous Laura Palmer; Part 2's doomed henchwoman Darya) as they are world-weary survivors. For the moment, let's focus on Rebecca "Becky" Burnett (Amanda Seyfried), daughter of Rr Diner waitress Shelly Johnson (Mädchen Amick), though Becky's last name—taken from ne'er-do-well husband Steven Burnett (Caleb Landry Jones)—obscures the identity of her father. (Dana Ashbrook's now-law-abiding Bobby Briggs is the most likely candidate, »

'Twin Peaks' Recap: Dougie, Fresh

4 June 2017 8:41 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

So it seems that Twin Peaks is gunning for being the comedy sensation of 2017.

Wild, right? It's funny to think about how just two weeks ago, a mainline dose of co-creator/director David Lynch's most abstract and brutal work in years made the goofball charms of Peaks 1.0 seem a million miles away – for three or so episodes, anyway. But then Dale Cooper reentered the real world in the guise of one Dougie Jones, a Vegas-area insurance agent with bad habits and worse jackets, and hilarity ensued. So now, we »

Guest Actress in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are a lot of returning faces in the guest actress category. Look for multiple Emmy winners Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf to repeat in this category for their work as the mothers of leads Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki on “The Big Bang Theory” — Baranski already has four noms for the role, while Metcalf has one. Three of the four times Melissa McCarthy has hosted “SNL” has led to a nomination here, and this year she has the bonus of her impeccable Sean Spicer imitation. Elizabeth Banks has also been nominated in the category before for “Modern Family,” but she faces serious competition from other “Family” guests like Dot-Marie Jones and Jane Krakowski. Another show with great guests is “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” which had turns by Laura Dern, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Amy Sedaris. And Carrie Fisher should lock a nod for her swan song on “Catastrophe.” Previous nominee Kristen Wiig had an entire episode »

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 3 & 4 Recap: Hell-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

30 May 2017 8:44 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.What's an FBI Special Agent to do after being locked away for 25 years in unearthly purgatory? Episodes three and four of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which aired on Showtime this past Sunday in a two-hour block (aside from September's two-part finale, it's all single, hour-long episodes from hereon out), follow our besuited, Black Lodge-incarcerated hero Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he reintegrates into modern terrestrial society. So this is basically Peaks doing Rectify, just with a sterile death row replaced by an infernal hellscape out of Clive Barker. Or David Lynch, really. What's becoming more and more evident as the new Peaks progresses is that the series is, in large part, a repository for Lynch's subconscious, past and present. »

"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, »

Jennifer Jason Leigh Retrospective Includes Films From the Coen Brothers, Cronenberg, Verhoeven, and the Woman Herself

31 March 2017 1:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After her break out role in the ’80s classic “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” the enigmatic and darkly charming Jennifer Jason Leigh has charted a course in film unlike any other. This month, the Alamo Drafthouse honors her varied and galvanizing career in a much deserved retrospective, aptly titled “Jennifer Jason Leigh!”

The series, which began last night and continues into May, spans Leigh’s decades-long career, which includes David Cronenberg’s “eXistenZ,” Paul Verhoeven’s “Flesh + Blood,” and Joel and Ethan Coen’s “The Hudsucker Proxy.” One of her most recognizable films opened the series, Stephen King’s “Dolores Claiborne,” in which she went head to head opposite Kathy Bates in a bear of a role.

‘Brigsby Bear’ Review: The Lonely Island’s Sundance Debut Is a Sweet Movie, But It’s a One-Joke Slog — Sundance 2017

26 January 2017 10:38 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s never a good thing when a production studio’s logo is the funniest part of a comedy, but, in fairness, the guys from The Lonely Island came up with a pretty good one. If only the rest of Dave McCary’s “Brigsby Bear,” a characteristically sweet and off-kilter vehicle for “SNL” star Kyle Mooney, were as amusing or subversive as we’ve come to expect from the companies behind it. (Sony Pictures Classics disagrees; it acquired the film today for worldwide rights.)

Mooney plays James, who initially seems like the son that every parent fears they might raise. An emotionally stunted 25-year-old man-child who lives at home and (literally) never goes outside, James sits in his room all day and obsessively re-watches VHS tapes of his favorite educational television series, “Brigsby Bear Adventures,” a new episode of which arrives at his house each week. And the strangest part »
