Inland Empire (2006)
Willard died on July 13, but news of her death was recently made public.
Champion is the one word that comes to mind when remembering Mary Willard and she wasn’t just Fred Willard’s best cheerleader, but she also mentored and nurtured a number of creative comedic writers and actors through the Willards’ Los Angeles-based comedy sketch group The Mohos over the last two-plus decades (which anecdotally I was a part of some years ago).
‘Let’s put on a show’ was an unofficial mantra, and within less than two-weeks time, the troupe would pull wigs out of the closet and brush up pages for performances at the Io West and The Bang Theater and even as far as the Inland Empire. Those trying out sketches at Mohos had the opportunity
“Cinema is a language. It can say things, big abstract things, and I love that about it,” Lynch says as the short begins. “Some people are poets and have a beautiful way of saying things with words, but cinema is its own language and so you can express a feeling or a thought that can’t be conveyed any other way. It’s a magical medium.”
Lynch also ruminates on the ways in which painting inspired his love of film, how ideas are like fish,
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,

A great sense of mystery surrounded “The Return,” which picks up 25 years after the original series left off. Details were kept tightly under wraps, especially the shocking conclusion. “I was thrilled at the ending,” revealed MacLachlan, who reprised his iconic role as Dale Cooper, an FBI Agent investigating the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) in a small Pacific Northwestern town (he also managed to play
“Who killed Laura Palmer?” was the question on everyone’s lips when “Twin Peaks” originally premiered on ABC in the spring of 1990. 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. The show was a success,
On 10 June 1991, in the chilling finale of the second season of Twin Peaks, Laura Palmer – or someone who looked like her – tells special agent Dale Cooper: “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” As promised, a quarter of a century later, the show written by David Lynch and Mark Frost returned with a boundary-pushing third season. It launched a thousand thinkpieces and fan theories; controversially, it was ranked second in Sight & Sound’s best films of 2017 list. At the heart of the show was new character Tammy Preston, an impossibly glamorous FBI agent played by relative unknown Chrysta Bell.
The musician and sometime actor has often been referred to as David Lynch’s muse: one of her songs appeared in his 2006 film Inland Empire,
The massive Doc NYC festival continues this week in New York City until the 16th, showcasing over 250 films and events. We have one more capsule collection to go up the coming days to close out the festival, but today we're entering the wonderful and strange world of David Lynch in Blue Velvet Revisited, which screens tonight at Cinepolis Chelsea at 9.30pm.
I don’t know about you, but 2017 hasn’t been the strongest year for movies in my eyes. Part of that may have to do directly with the product itself. But a more significant part is that quite literally no movie I have seen this year has had quite the gravitational pull of Twin Peaks. The return of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s classic 1990s television series was maligned by many, but found a dedicated collection of fans for whom it was 18-hours of pure Lynchian madness,

Lynch made no feature-length films or TV series in the 11 long years between the release of “Inland Empire” and this new “Twin Peaks,” but he did grace us with his presence onscreen several times. Most prominently — and weirdly, and hilariously — that
“We also shot it like a feature film,” said Deming in an interview with IndieWire. “When you went to a location, you shot all the action that took place at that location. It’s different than TV – there’s no episode scripts, there’s one director, there’s one crew. So we broke it down and scheduled it like a feature film.”
This “block shooting” approach is impossible for most television shows, which are still being written when production begins on the first episode of the season. It’s a far more efficient approach,

Harry Dean Stanton was born in Irvine, Kentucky and raised with a musical background while attending Lafayette High School and the University of Kentucky in Lexington. Stanton sings, plays guitar, and plays the harmonica. After performing theater in college, Stanton said that he had to choose between being an actor and a musician while also mentioning that he could have been a writer as well after studying journalism. He was convinced to get into acting and the rest is history.
He was the son of a cook and a tobacco farmer, a Kentucky boy who took a big risk by dropping out of university to pursue an acting career, but by the time he died on Friday at the age of 91, Harry Dean Stanton had appeared in more than 100 films. They include a host of hits: The Last Temptation Of Christ, Cool Hand Luke, Pretty In Pink, The Green Mile, Inland Empire and more. He had bit parts in the likes of The Godfather 2, In The Heat Of The Night and How The West Was Won, though sadly his scenes in Cheech and Chong's stoner classic Up In Smoke went up in smoke themselves. But some of his work was truly unforgettable. If you see nothing else, you have to check out these.
