Hello! Infrequent poster here. I wrote this article and thought you'd might like to read it. In it, I expand thoughts I expressed in the Speculation thread a while back, though the editorial is not connected to a theoretical season four. It is "my own ongoing personal investigation" into the meaning of The Return's finale. Cheers! Sidgwick https://whatculture.com/tv/5-years-later-twin-peaks-the-return-ending-finally-makes-sense

Three major Twin Peaks cast members will be attending Spooky Empire in Orlando, Florida as the organizers announce a Twin Peaks VIP package priced at $500. Sheryl Lee, Kyle MacLachlan and Ray Wise are to headline a Twin Peaks Q/A panel at the event. Dale Cooper star Kyle MacLachlan has cut a relatively elusive figure when it comes to fan conventions, with the bulk of recent appearances being in press tours for (or soon after) Twin Peaks: The Return's release on Showtime.

Here's something I believe: the summer of 2017, wherein David Lynch and Mark Frost brought Twin Peaks back to television, represents the last truly great summer on record. The next few weren't bad, per se (and were certainly more satisfying than the summers we've been handed during the COVID era), but none of 'em came close to matching the crackling energy of Summer '17, when you, me, and everyone we know was caught up in the immense gravitational pull of Twin Peaks: The Return. It was a...

Alexandre O. Philippe's doc explores some of the ways 'The Wizard of Oz' helped shape the Lynchian universe. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-reviews/lynch-oz-film-review-tribeca-2022-1235162572/ It shouldn’t surprise anyone that an artist who famously goes fishing for material beneath the surface of his conscious mind (via meditation) would frequently “catch ideas” with bits of childhood memories stuck to them, hard as barnacles. For David Lynch, whose films conjure some...

The singer blended dream-pop with Americana to eerie effect, and Lynch’s uncanny work elevated her songs to the sublime. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/jun/10/julee-cruise-died-david-lynchs-americana-twin-peaks-blue-velvet The celestial sigh that we think of as the voice of Julee Cruise was a collaborative fiction. In 1986 David Lynch was obsessed with This Mortal Coil’s version of Song to the Siren, sung by Elizabeth Fraser, and desperate to feature it in his movie Blue Velvet...

As we are increasingly fed fan service and nostalgia in our films and TV shows, Twin Peaks: The Return still leads a ferocious battle against it five years on. “Is It future? Or is it past?” When the One-Armed Man Mike (Al Strobel) posed that question to Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in the second part of Twin Peaks: The Return, he may very well have been echoing the thoughts of the viewers. After all, Mike asked that question while sitting in the Red Room, the...
INLAND EMPIRE David Lynch’s Unfathomable Masterpiece

A digital reissue of Inland Empire reveals the charms of the director’s inscrutability. By 4 o’clock, shooting had begun with the lumberjack, monkey, and one-legged woman all on set—they’re all prominently featured in the compellingly inscrutable final sequence of Inland Empire, which has been recently remastered and is now touring cinemas around the country. The anecdote is a testament to how classically “Lynchian” the film is, loaded with visual details that invite intense analysis but...
