Twin Peaks Season 3 (May 21st)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Still looking for the article but this was sort-of my take on it:

Davies has always been a character from a Lynch film and I'm glad he finally self-actualized in front of us. Naomi Watts continues to amaze. Her dialogue about the 99% seemed an update on the original's seriocomic send-up of soap opera tropes and her delivery was pitch perfect: exaggerated, dramatic, ridiculous, and affecting. Similarly, the extended shots of the bystanders' reactions to the kid's death seemed to spit in the face of the scene's unearned sentimentality. We didn't know the kid. He had no character development. It was suuucchhh an obviously cheap plot device used to further Richard's character (while establishing Harry Dean Stanton) and one that everyone could see coming from a mile away. The fact that Lynch interspersed some stunning cinematography/framing during that scene while continuously cutting back to a bunch of community college actors standing around REACTING without helping was great. For HDS to come in and inject that kinda emotion into the thing on top of all that was next level.



Doesn't quite sum up what I was trying to say, which is that Lynch expertly grafted layers to what is typically a very one-note sort of plot device in this kind of storytelling. He managed to simultaneously mock the convention by showing us the seams and how we look to the chorus for our emotional cues while also somehow simultaneously landing an emotional punch, undiminished (and perhaps even bolstered) by the sheer tonal chaos of what's happening. I think he achieves this by misdirecting the emotional core of the scene which would typically be about the tragic loss of the little boy. By taking the piss out of that unearned sentimentality over a character who existed for ten seconds specifically to propel the narrative, the emotional core of the scene comes from Harry Dean and his processing of the world and what is happening all around him and HDS just nails it.

I'm just catching up on reading the last several pages but I wanted to add that my gf also needed big breaks between episodes because of the violence towards women.

i normally hate when directors try to do what lynch does in this scene because so few ever manage to pull it off without undermining the genuine emotions that underline scenes like this. lynch understands that the scene is a hammy, overused trope but doesn't just wink at the audience to undermine it- he somehow manages to hit both notes simultaneously- and i can't think of anyone else who manages that but admittedly i'm probably the least educated on film history of anyone in the thread so take that with a grain of salt.

this is probably a really elementary observation, but when i think of "lynchian" as an aesthetic or tone or whatever, i think of the sense of confusion and unease at being forced to feel multiple contradictory emotions at once without the show or movie giving you any indication of which of those feelings is supposed to be dominant or correct. the disorientation doesn't come from the whiplash of doing a bunch of things in succession but from the tension of feeling multiple emotions simultaneously and having no clue how to reconcile them with each other. he plays the space between these emotions really well by sitting the audience directly in that space rather than inside the emotions themselves.

did we get reactions to sarah's final piece for artforum
cause it was a doozy
Flutehampton will turn out to have always been relished by women who dwell in or near to the past. This is where The Little Reptiles were digitally collected. In recent decades it has become a popular photographic background whenever a maverick cop marries a hooker with a heart of gold.

both post dapped

lynch is extremely good at straddling between sincerity and irony and managing to hit both at the same time. see also: every scene in blue velvet.

I know this has been said in this thread before, but it feels like a dream that there was a time that we got to watch this week by week. Where I would look forward to it and make sure to carve out time and turn off all the lights and have a new and amazing hour long movie every week.

I was just watching the BTS stuff and in one of the production meetings an assistant is flipping through the script and it's fuckin a ream of paper. Would love to browse through that bad boy on a winter's night.

she's got a still of lynch and her in her twitter banner from the BTS docs when they were smoking so it would seem odd if she was out for lynch. was also just at a TP-related san fran thing (a comedy fest?) with other cast

if it's TP-related i'd guess it's probably something to do with this

I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't going for anything and they were just thrown in quickly without much direction.

Yea it's kinda weird showtime is running the pop up shop into the ground but they did give big Dave a blank check & total creative freedom so I'd say it's an even trade off. Last week they had rebekah del rio performing I woulda gone to that if I was in LA.
