Hopefully, David Lynch will make another movie after that. There are only nine real Lynch movies, which is very tragic.

 

I'm assuming Fire Walk With Me is the one you consider not a real movie? Or did you miscount?

No, it's "Dune", as it is more like a struggle between the director and the producer. The result is the movie being a chaos and by far the worst of the director (though it's more the producers movie).

It's like "Poltergeist" which is undeniably directed by Steven Spielberg.

 

"Fire Walk With Me" is a typical but a great movie, although many fans were disappointed, because the movie was too sinister and brutal in comparison to the series.

Hmm, we still haven't seen that movie...

Some things are better left for the imagination. Laura Palmer's final night on this mortal coil included.

If Lynch had gone Lucas, we would have seen the origins of Agent Cooper's love for cherry pie and Audrey's mole, and we would have found out how Dick Tremayne got his job at Horne's Department Store.

 

Fire Walk With Me is a difficult movie, and I don't really view it as "a part" with the series.  Especially not tonally - gone is the defining humor of the series and the delve into the dark side of small town lives.  But as a companion piece (something that gets across the horror of what actually was happening to Laura Palmer much more than a bunch of after-the-fact reveals and forensics reports in the series), I think it's vital in a way.

I hope we don't see her on the new show!

Hmm.  You know, maybe we'll just NEVER watch FWWM.

By all accounts reactions to it are total marmite. I wish I'd never bothered to watch it (although luckily I've forgotten pretty much everything about it).

I'd watch it.  There's a lot of "Twin Peaks mythology" stuff.  Even if it's not particularly Twin Peaksy, it's an interesting thing to sit and watch.  Also, as a David Lynch movie, it serves as kind of a gateway - from his earlier, typically more linear stuff, to his later-career weirder stuff to come (Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire).

I love Mulholland Dr!

I'm actually more curious about the 90 minute deleted scenes montage with all the cast members than I am the final theatrical movie, I think.

I still haven't watched that...yet.  I plan on doing a slow rewatch of the series, including the movie and the missing pieces, sometime before May.

Apparently once you watch them you can see why they were cut. 

 

It all got a little bit exhaustive in the end didn't it, the desperation for anything more from Twin Peaks.

Fire Walk With Me is a stand alone movie. I've never seen the series and I like it more than most Twin Peak fans.

In comparison to his other stuff it's not as good as his 4 surreal masterpieces and his 2 emotional dramas, but you can compare it with Inland Empire and Eraserhead.

So Lynch went Lucas?

 

No. You mean you never heard the tale? How Lucas took Lynch out for salad and tried to get him to direct Revenge of the Jedi? It's a shame. It might have been a great film.

I thought Laurie was no longer with us if I'm honest. My bad. 

 

I definitely liked her character and it would have been nice to see her return. 

 

Just re-read this because of Jay's link. After watching the whole thing again, I'm sad Laurie isn't returning. She's one of my favourite characters. 

 

"Sigh" implies mild irritation. What's up?

I liked the actress far more than the character.

The character is dazzling!

 

If you're into gay icons perhaps. Which I guess explains your affection

Catherine Martell was an awesome character, I forgot she wouldn't be in the revival, that's too bad

I think Josie killed a lot of that story thread for me. Just her precence there.

 

James with the femme fatale bad!

Without Josie and Pete, maybe there wasn't much left to do with Catherine's character

Pete was great! Legendary even in his first scene!

Although he was never quite crucial to the main storyline, he was absolutely essential in establishing that very peculiar Twin Peaks atmosphere. His character was gold
