Twin Peaks” is most often linked to David Lynch, but it was the show’s co-creator, Mark Frost, who felt a personal connection to Drew, Alfonsi explained.

Review: David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s ‘Thought Gang’

Review: David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s ‘Thought Gang’
For more than a quarter century, filmmaker David Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti have been sitting on some of the most compellingly bizarre creations either had worked on — even by David Lynch’s standards. Now they’ve finally released Thought Gang, a project that has only previously surfaced on Lynch’s soundtrack to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and in the backgrounds of his works like Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire. A far cry from the hipster, cool jazz of Twin Peaks or the dreamy pop of their work with singer Julee Cruise,

Podtalk: Kyle MacLachlan at Michigan Avenue Magazine 10th Celebration

Chicago – At Chicago’s Michigan Avenue Magazine 10th Anniversary Issue event on September 11th, 2018, a surprise visitor joined cover celebrity Darren Criss, and his low-key appearance brought a stir of excitement to the room. Actor Kyle MacLachlan, best known for the extraordinary work in “Twin Peaks,” was in the house.

MacLachlan of course was Agent Dale Cooper, in the original run of “Twin Peaks” in 1990-91, the movie prequel “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” and the unforgettable 18 episode revisit to Tp by director/creator David Lynch, that played on the Showtime Network in 2017. But that’s not all for the Amazing Mr. MacLachlan. He is a prodigy of David Lynch, having made his debut in the director’s film version of “Dune” in 1984, followed by his godly turn in “Blue Velvet” (1986). He is also memorable in so many other roles, including Ray Manzarek in Oliver Stone’s “The Doors

Could Miguel Ferrer earn a posthumous Emmy nomination for ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’?

Could Miguel Ferrer earn a posthumous Emmy nomination for ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’?
Could Miguel Ferrer become a posthumous Emmy nominee for “Twin Peaks: The Return”? The veteran character actor died of throat cancer in January 2017 after he shot the Showtime revival, in which he reprised his role as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield. The TV academy often rewards stars who have died with nominations for their final performances, so could Ferrer compete for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor? Despite a long list of TV credits including “The Stand” (1994), “Crossing Jordan” (2001-2007), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (2012-2017) and many more, he never earned an Emmy nomination during his lifetime.

Ferrer first appeared in the original “Twin Peaks” in a recurring role as an abrasive and sarcastic FBI forensics specialist assisting Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in his murder investigation in the title town. And he also appeared in the 1992 prequel film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.” The 18-episode limited run in 2017 found him

Kyle MacLachlan Was Confused by ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ Too: ‘I Couldn’t Believe the Premises’

Kyle MacLachlan Was Confused by ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ Too: ‘I Couldn’t Believe the Premises’
If “Twin Peaks: The Return” left you a little baffled, you’re not alone. The 18-episode revival was enigmatic even by David Lynch’s standards, so much so that even its star had difficulty following the surreal goings-on: Kyle MacLachlan tells TheWrap that, when he first read about what his character(s) would be doing, he “couldn’t believe the premises.”

“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

Kyle MacLachlan: Yes, Even I Was Confused by David Lynch’s Return to ‘Twin Peaks’

Kyle MacLachlan: Yes, Even I Was Confused by David Lynch’s Return to ‘Twin Peaks’
This story about Kyle MacLachlan first appeared in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

Anybody who watched TV in the early 1990s remembers Agent Dale Cooper. A quirky but buttoned-down FBI agent with a taste for damn fine coffee and apple pie, he led an investigation into the murder of high schooler Laura Palmer in the town of Twin Peaks, Washington, population 51,201.

Strange things happened to Agent Cooper and everyone around him in David Lynch’s groundbreaking series “Twin Peaks,” which ran for two seasons and later gave birth to the 1992 film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” and, last year, a much-delayed third season that ran for 18 hour-long episodes on Showtime.

David Lynch Compares His Two Biggest Film Failures, Still Prefers Movie Theaters Over Television

David Lynch Compares His Two Biggest Film Failures, Still Prefers Movie Theaters Over Television
David Lynch knows a thing or two about bombing with critics and audiences. The director’s 1984 “Dune” adaptation was fraught with tension behind the scenes, so much so that Lynch tried to take his name off his own film. The science-fiction epic was a notorious box office failure, but its poor reception was nothing compared to the vitriol Lynch faced at Cannes 1992 with the debut of “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.”

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

With co-creator Mark Frost (“Hill Street Blues”), Lynch brought the surreal sensibilities of his films “Eraserhead” (1977) and “Blue Velvet” (1986) to the TV masses with the story of an FBI agent (MacLachlan) investigating the murder of a homecoming queen (Sheryl Lee) in a small Pacific Northwest town.

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘First Reformed’ Origins, the Caan Film Festival, ‘Twin Peaks’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Films by Ozu, Bresson, and Dreyer are among the selections in Paul Schrader’s lead up to First Reformed.

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Francis Ford Coppola, David Bowie & More

It’s been a stellar year of cinema and pop culture-themed books, and the texts (and Blu-rays) in this round-up all make fine gifts. One additional book that should be on your year-end list is Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier. It’s a satisfying companion to season three of Peaks, not to mention Frost’s own Secret History of Twin Peaks. So be sure to check out Nick Newman’s recent interview with the Peaks co-creator.

Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola (Liveright)

The legendary Francis Ford Coppola has spoken of “live cinema” with regularity over the years, specifically with respect to 1981’s One From the Heart. That film, a box office flop now held in some regard, is an essential part of Live Cinema and Its Techniques, a fascinating new book authored by Coppola himself. The lessons from that experience, Coppola says,

New to Streaming: ‘Logan Lucky,’ ‘Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,’ ‘Mudbound,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis,

Doc NYC 2017: Peter Braatz on Blue Velvet Revisited

The past year has proven to be a uniquely rewarding time for David Lynch obsessives, with the Showtime revival of Twin Peaks being the obvious highlight, but also marked by recent Criterion Collection Blu-ray/DVD special editions of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and the new documentary, David Lynch: the Art Life, focused on Lynch’s painting roots. However, one of the most fascinating Lynch-related features in recent memory has yet to receive the widespread U.S. exposure it richly deserves, and it reflects back to a more traditionally structured Lynch favorite (indeed, still the film that some cite as his key work) that those […]
