Twin Peaks season 3 episode 8 review: Gotta Light?

25 June 2017 11:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Matar Jun 26, 2017

And they said Eraserhead could never work as a series! Here's our Us chums' look at the latest Twin Peaks: The Return episode...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Twin Peaks season 3 episode 7 review: There’s A Body All Right Twin Peaks season 3 episode 6 review: Don’t Die Twin Peaks season 3 episode 5 review: Case Files

We must’ve done something to displease David Lynch, for now we are being punished. Has one of you been watching the series on your iPhone or something? Episode 7 was bordering on coherency and, frankly, that was Lynch being a bit too generous. “Now, survive this!” screams Part 7 at us long-suffering Twin Peaks fans.

We got to see a little bit of what’s going on with Evil Cooper, who gets double-crossed, shot, and then has his insides torn open by a bunch of painted vagrants so that he can »

Cannes Winning Best Actor and Lanthimos' Quirky 'Family' Thriller Academy Award Chances?

20 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'120 Beats per Minute' trailer: Robin Campillo's AIDS movie features plenty of drama and a clear sociopolitical message. AIDS drama makes Pedro Almodóvar cry – but will Academy members tear up? (See previous post re: Cannes-Oscar connection.) In case France submits it to the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, screenwriter-director Robin Campillo's AIDS drama 120 Beats per Minute / 120 battements par minute, about the Paris Act Up chapter in the early 1990s, could quite possibly land a nomination. The Grand Prix (Cannes' second prize), international film critics' Fipresci prize, and Queer Palm winner offers a couple of key ingredients that, despite its gay sex scenes, should please a not insignificant segment of the Academy membership: emotionalism and a clear sociopolitical message. When discussing the film after the presentation of the Palme d'Or, Pedro Almodóvar (and, reportedly, jury member Jessica Chastain) broke into tears. Some believed, in fact, that 120 Beats per Minute »

Great Job, Internet!: Explore what David Lynch’s films say about Americana

6 June 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

At this point, someone who hasn’t even spent much time with the films of David Lynch knows, roughly, what “Lynchian” means. It might just scan as “weird” or “dark,” but then, after watching a few films, the throughlines become clearer: noir surrealism, mundanity and the macabre, and those wonderful, ominous ambient drones. A new video from ScreenPrism buzzes through Lynch’s history, starting with his early work as a painter, providing a solid primer on his filmography as well as a thesis that the primary throughline is his take on Americana.

From the post-industrial wasteland of Philadelphia in Eraserhead through the cross-country odyssey of The Straight Story, and now, the many locations of Twin Peaks’ third season, Lynch has remained obsessed with the idea that there’s another America hiding beneath the surface. It helps to explain why his films have resonated so well, and why the term “Lynchian »

‘Twin Peaks’: The 6 Craziest Revival Fan Theories, Ranked

2 June 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

From the first glimpse of that weird bird that heralds the arrival of “Twin Peaks,” the television series plunged viewers into the palm of David Lynch’s hand. It’s a weird and wondrous place to be, which makes it prime fodder for fan theories. If ever a show’s symbology deserved an IMDb page, this would be it.

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

Thanks to Showtime, Lynch has free rein to complete the “Twin Peaks” story arc, a process that has him referencing his own “Lost Highway,” “Eraserhead,” and, most of all, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.” Of course, it’s Lynch so all of this effectively clarifies nothing  — but nature hates a vacuum, and that’s why we have ample fan theories to close the gap.

So, here are six of the best fan theories for the revival series’ first four episodes, »

David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’ Goes ‘Eraserhead’ & Absurdist Comedy [Episodes 3 & 4 Recap]

30 May 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

**Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the show.**

And you thought that last episode was weird. David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” goes off the edge in this week’s two episodes. Like a modern update on “Eraserhead,” the beginning of episode three, “Call For Help,” is some kind of spellbinding bewitchery, featuring easily the strangest, most unsettling images that Lynch has committed to celluloid since the rabbit scenes in “Inland Empire” or some of his early experimental short films, of which the opening scene of episode 3 is very reminiscent.

"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' Recap: Keeping Up With the Joneses

28 May 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

His name is Dougie Jones. He has a beer gut, a bad haircut, an even worse selection of sportjackets and a penchant for adultery in vacant development housing. And he does not exist.

Dougie is the mystical creation of Agent Dale Cooper's doppelganger – a living, breathing bait-and-switch brought into existence, somehow, to get sucked into the Black Lodge in the evil being's place. So when Coop returns to the real world, it's this poor sap who gets airlifted into the afterlife. The Bad Dale may vomit up poison and get himself arrested, »

9 Thoughts on Cannes 2017

27 May 2017 11:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Festival played host to some good movies this year (there is never a year when it doesn’t), yet throughout the 12-day event, there has been a pervasive feeling, shared by critics and distributors and publicists and audiences alike, that the festival’s been having a soft year, that the magic was tamped down. It had something do with the lack of a universally agreed upon home run, like “Toni Erdmann” or “Amour” or “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days” or “Breaking the Waves.” (There were a handful of doubles and triples, but more disputes than not about all of them.) It had something to do with the new security system (long, slow lines to get through metal detectors), which freighted the simple act of walking into a movie with a touch of that airport depression. For all that, Cannes is still Cannes: the most momentous film festival in the world. »

The Elephant Man

25 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Mel Brooks saw Eraserhead and perceived what few others could at the time, that David Lynch was an empathetic artist who, while fully capable of provoking nightmares, was just as able to move an audience to tears. That’s exactly what happened with Brooks’ 1980 production of The Elephant Man, a Frankensteinian parable about an outwardly ugly creature with a beautiful soul. Acted to understated perfection by Anthony Hopkins and John Hurt, Lynch’s commercial debut is also one of the most lustrously beautiful black and white films ever photographed, courtesy of Freddie Francis.

Eraserhead

23 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

David Lynch’s visionary black comedy was shot in sunny California but the bleakly surreal black and white imagery, full of smoking chimneys and dilapidated walk-ups, suggests a nightmare factory town by way of Diane Arbus. The film has such a uniquely grungy beauty (courtesy of Frederick Elmes’ photography) and featured such eccentrically empathetic characters (in particular the woebegone hero played by Jack Nance) that the prescient Mel Brooks took a chance on the unknown Lynch and hired him to direct The Elephant Man. Commensurate with its “hand-made” origins, Eraserhead never had a proper theatrical release trailer, so we’re presenting the trailer for the dvd release.

David Lynch’s Glass Box Murders in ‘Twin Peaks’ Are a Key to Understanding the Revival Series

22 May 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Just 35 minutes into the new “Twin Peaks,” the woman sitting next to me looked over and said, “Holy shit.”

We’d never met before, but I responded in kind. The two of us were far from alone: Everyone at the “Twin Peaks” world premiere had just let out a collective gasp after witnessing one of the most unsettling moments in David Lynch’s oeuvre. Considering the Winkie’s Scene in “Mulholland Drive,” the hallway phantom from “Inland Empire” and pretty much every moment of “Eraserhead,” that’s no small feat.

We were all at downtown Los Angeles’ Theatre at the Ace Hotel for the long-awaited return to “Twin Peaks,” which up until that moment I wasn’t fully onboard with. I found myself resisting the extended sequence, which takes place in New York and features characters (played by Ben Rosenfield and Madeline Zima) we’ve never met before. I kept »

The ‘Twin Peaks’ Log Lady Is the Series’ Wisest Character, and Could Save Them All

22 May 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first two parts of the “Twin Peaks” revival series.]

On Sunday’s premiere of “Twin Peaks,” fans reunited with beloved character Margaret Lanterman, better known as the Log Lady. The reunion was bittersweet, though, since actress Catherine Coulson had died from cancer shortly after shooting her scenes for the revival series in September 2015.

In the two scenes in which the Log Lady appears, the evidence of Coulson’s battle with the disease is evident: She’s weaker, speaks haltingly and breathes with the aid of a nasal cannula. Despite this obvious infirmity, though, it was heartening to see that the Log Lady is still on her game and possibly sharper than ever. In these first two episodes in which the women are treated viciously on screen, it was inspiring to see that one woman isn’t beaten down or cowed, and in fact provides guidance and offers sustenance.

The Twin Peaks revival is "pure heroin David Lynch" and all the good and bad that comes with it, say our Us chums...

This review contains spoilers.

I knew it was going to be tough to review the new series of Twin Peaks as if it were any other show. There was a period, in the original series, where it fell into clear rhythms—developing and twisting its various storylines about affairs, criminal activity, and supernatural gubbins—but this was also when the show was at its absolute worst. Its best episodes featured some of that stuff combined with unknowable David Lynch horror and oddness.

Fire Walk With Me immersed itself completely in the Lynchian side of Twin Peaks. I enjoy that film a great deal, »

The Straight Story

21 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

As sunny as Eraserhead was dark, David Lynch’s The Straight Story tells the tale of Alvin Straight’s (Richard Farnsworth) journey to visit his estranged brother. This being a Lynch film, Alvin makes the cross-country trip on top of a John Deere lawnmower, clocking in at a steady five miles an hour. It’s also a true story (as Mark Twain said, “It’s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.”) Co-starring Sissy Spacek and Harry Dean Stanton and photographed by Freddie Francis.

‘Twin Peaks’ Original Series in 1990: Oddball, but ‘Brilliant Television’

20 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Sunday, Showtime debuts “Twin Peaks,” a continuation of the 1990 series that is unique in TV history — the show has maintained a fan base after a quarter century, even though there were only 30 episodes, most of them low-rated.

Like the new incarnation, the original “Twin Peaks” was kept in secrecy, but media (and audience) anticipation was high. ABC premiered the two-hour pilot on April 8, 1990, and it was an immediate hit. However, the show quickly faded from view.

Even before it started, Variety predicted it would be a challenge. In a story on Feb. 28, 1990, a few weeks before the debut, Elizabeth Guider wrote that it was much hyped, but “the series represents a ratings risk: It has no big names, no car chases, no glitz, no overt sex or violence. What it does have is an offbeat intelligence at work on a very American kind of story — murder in a small town.”

David Lynch Travels Back To ‘Twin Peaks’: “The Story Was Not Over” — Deadline Disruptors

19 May 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In the 40 years since his twisted debut Eraserhead, David Lynch has established himself as the godfather of the cinema of the strange. Creating directly from the depths of his subconscious, Lynch challenged accepted notions of realism in the thriller genre with his breakout 1986 hit Blue Velvet, a psychosexual neo-noir, then did the same for serial TV in 1990 with the ABC show Twin Peaks, in which the murder of a small-town beauty queen opened a festering can of… »
