TWIN PEAKS

Recommended Posts

Since Fire Walk With Me has a completely different actress in the roll of Donna, I can't imagine he didn't notice that. Doubt he watched the actual movie.

But will he ever admit to it?

Cremers on Blade Runner 2:

"Well, that was a disappointment. I don't know who did the editing on this, but that was a mess. Every minute or so, you had some guy popping up on screen, talking about how they made the film, how they did the special effects, etc. I didn't understand what was going on. What was Villeneuve thinking?"

That was weird too but I was more puzzled by the text that said: 'Made from cut scenes and alternate takes'. Funny that Jason never noticed that. I guess he also didn't notice how very different Fire Walk With Me was filmed and how unfunny it was.

You're right about one thing without even seeing the movie, though - the humor of the series is, for the most part, not found in it. It was one of my biggest complaints at the time, although now I enjoy FWWM for what it is.

It's not so funny if you realize that there is indeed a film consisting of cut scenes named Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me: The Missing Pieces...

OK, to make things clearer for you, because I'm not sure you understand what we're talking about. There are two different things:

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me => a movie that is a prequel to the show and which was released theatrically.

Fire Walk With Me: The Missing Pieces => a bonus feature on the Blu-Ray that presents the deleted scenes of Fire Walk With Me in the form of a film. This was not released theatrically, and was just presented as a film on the Blu-Ray probably to make for an easier watch, rather than having to go through the Blu-Ray menu to select each scene (because there is a shitload of them).

Fire Talk With Me is probably my favorite Lynch movie and it is, IMHO, quite essential for the whole Twin Peaks experience. As for the missing pieces, which aparently someone mistook for the feature film, does have some really scary stuff in it, like Laura staring at the ceiling fan or seeing her father arriving home

Wasn't that in the film proper?

No, only in the missing pieces.

And the film also has the very best soundtrack of the whole series. It's an incredible cd

I was talking about these two scenes

And I can't seem to find the clip of Laura, hidden in the bushes, seeing her father arrive home

OK, I'm not sure if this ceiling scene was in, but I'm pretty sure the one with Laura hiding in the bushes was.

And I'm also sure I didn't watch The Missing Pieces because the movie was more than 2 hours long, and The Missing Pieces is only 90 minutes long.

EDIT: OK, look at this: http://thedancingimage.blogspot.fr/2015/01/twin-peaks-untangling-fire-walk-with-me.html

Below the Missing Pieces section, there is a description of the theatrical cut. The ceiling scene definitely is in, as well as the scene with Laura hiding in the bushes. I didn't remember wrong after all!

Yeah, but the ceiling fan is hardly as memorable in film as the in the missing pieces. The addition of the smile makes it all the much creepier. That page confirms that the hiding in the bushes segment was only on the missing pieces.

Laura sneaks out and Leland watches from the window

(The Missing Pieces includes an extended middle section, showing Laura hiding in the bushes while Leland stares in her direction)

Nope. At least, not the one I'm talking about, which is a daytime scene (yours is a nighttime scene).

In the theatrical cut section:

Leland exits the house while Laura hides in the bushes

So it looks like we were not talking about the same scene.

It means Lynch made another movie from a lot of stuff that didn't make the actual movie. Have you seen it? It's not a bunch of 'deleted scenes' like you would normally find in the bonus section.

I've seen it, and while there's a certain narrative to it (because many scenes are actually extended scenes from the film, many of them are very long, and it's chronological), I didn't have the feeling that it actually was so cohesive that it could be viewed on its own.

So who has actually seen Fire Walk With Me?

I have.

Damn. I heard they had planned for her to return in a small cameo in the new series. Alas, that never happened. What an iconic figure! (I must admit, though, that I don't know anything else about her other than that she was Jack Nance's wife).
