Lynch's Next Film
26 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

What the heck. When you're a director of such bizarre content as David Lynch is, you can take your nightmares and throw them out there. I have contended that he does that. Waking up in the middle of the night, he jots down the strains of his mystic violin and reproduces them on a script upon awakening. Other than the beginning, where bad- Cooper is shot and then mended by wraiths, we are dealing in pure surrealism. We have some of the consummate fears produced: nuclear war, zombies, insects crawling into our mouths, dark shadowy figures in the woods, a moon shining through clouds, a house in the middle of nowhere. It's as if he wanted to find a way to get this all out without a whole new movie. Count me wrong if this somehow becomes connected with the town of Twin Peaks. The big thing for me is that when it comes to a traditional intertwining of events, forget it. Because this is unlike anything we've seen before, we may as well absorb it and enjoy it---or not!
