Twin Peaks (1990–1991)
It was one thing for Laura Dern to play a woman who suppressed the memory of her first sexual experience for years in HBO’s “The Tale.” It was another to have the woman who lived through those circumstances in real life sitting in the director’s chair.
“In a word? Weird,” Dern said when asked what it was like playing out director Jennifer Fox’s personal experience with Fox directing. “Super odd. Helpful, healing, weird, confronting, delicate — it was all those things.”
In order to “make it feel just right,” Dern said, she and Fox had had lunches, dinners and phone conversations. “It’s her truth, yes, and I have to play her, but I also have to feel it in my bones and understand it, and that takes its own journey
When “Genius” producer Kenneth Biller went to the Spanish town of Málaga to visit Antonio Banderas, he quickly learned the hierarchy. The Andalusian coastal city, he was told on his way in from the airport, has two local heroes who are particularly esteemed by the town in which they were born.
“They explained to me, in Spanish, ‘El primero is Picasso,'” Biller said. “‘El segundo is Antonio.'”
And No. 2 played No. 1. In “Genius: Picasso,” Banderas takes on a role that had long haunted him, and one he’d spent years avoiding, of the protean artist who cast a huge shadow in his hometown, where he grew up during the reign of dictator Francisco Franco.
“Picasso was enormous in Málaga,” Banderas said. “We didn’t have many heroes.
“At first I imagined that David was going to be doing something along the lines of what he did before,” said MacLachlan, who worked with Lynch on “Dune” and “Blue Velvet” in addition to the original “Twin Peaks.”
“But very early on, he gave me some scenes to read at his house, and I couldn’t believe the premises. I was really excited and challenged by what I was being asked to do — because these are characters that I had never done before, and if I don’t deliver
Based on the acclaimed 1910 novel by E.M. Forster, this new spin on the timeless classic was adapted by Oscar champ Kenneth Lonergan (“Manchester by the Sea”). It stars Hayley Atwell and Philippa Coulthard as the independent and unconventional Schlegel sisters navigating their way through turn-of-the-century England, whose lives become intertwined with the wealthy Wilcox family and the working-class Bast family. The series also stars Emmy winners Julia Ormond and Tracey Ullman, alongside Matthew Macfadyen, Joseph Quinn and Alex Lawther.

Yet it’s a mistake to assume that Lynch and co-writer/co-creator Mark Frost’s 500-plus-page script for the third season was simply the canvas on which Lynch painted. For four-and-a-half years the two longtime collaborators painstakingly wrote 18 new episodes that balance the continuation of all the old characters’ storylines, while exploring a vast and layered world that flowed from the first
Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” prequel film was ripped to shreds by critics at the time of its premiere. Even some of the director’s most ardent supporters found themselves questioning their love of the auteur. Quentin Tarantino reacted to the film by famously saying, “David Lynch had disappeared so far up his own ass that I have no desire to see another David Lynch movie until I hear something different.”
In a new interview with Deadline, Lynch looks
“Well, for right now, you could say I don’t want to talk about that.”
Hinting at something more but keeping details under wraps is almost always a tease that talks are underway, and while I have no way of confirming that, I'm not why Lynch would tease people if there's no shot at the series returning. Lynch added later some high praise for cable television, and mentioned that whatever his next project may be, it'll likely be on TV:
“Feature films have fallen on hard times these days. And it’s sad, but it’s the reality.

The shirts feature the artwork of Lynch, which means they are all as weird and transfixing as you’d expect from the mind behind “Inland Empire,” “Mulholland Drive,” and “Rabbits.” Some of the shirts feature doodle designs Lynch drew of animals such as a dinosaur, an octopus, and a dragonfly, while others are the kind of creatures that feel like only Lynch could dream up. The “Turkey Cheese” and “Chicken Head Blue” shirts, for instance,
Reacting to Ari Aster’s “Hereditary” on social media, Barry Jenkins noted that the film included “one of the most visceral moments” he ever experienced in a movie theater. The “Moonlight” director did not mention which scene he was talking about, but anyone who contributed to the film’s $13 million opening weekend knows there’s one specific event that leaves you so shocked it’s hard to pick your jaw up off the floor. It occurs at the end of the first act and marks a horror movie twist to rival “Psycho.”
Annie Graham (Toni Collette) has forced her teenage son Peter (Alex Wolff) to bring the family’s youngest daughter Charlie (Milly Shaprio) to a high school house party. The emotionally detached Peter leaves his sister alone at the party so he can go off to smoke weed with a girl he’s trying to impress. Charlie ends up

2018 certainly got off to a slow start in the realm of high-quality TV. With years past treating us to some phenomenal offerings early on in proceedings, 2018 has seen a number of these shows pushed further down the line, leaving the opening months of the year rather baron by comparison. It was indeed looking rather bleak for a while but eventually things started to pick up, eventually, quality products arrived and audiences have since been treated to some truly excellent TV. Now that we are well into the sixth month of 2018, I suppose it’s as good a time as any to consider what has so far been and to try and present a look at the best of what’s been conjured by some of the brightest talents in the industry. So, without any further delay, here are the
“That was one of the worst notes I think I’ve ever received,” Harbour said. “I had one scene, and I came in on coverage, and he was like, ‘more handsome,’ and I was like, ‘Wow.’”
