Re: Press Review

‘Twin Peaks’ is Flying Into Its Finale: Why All That Action Could Lead to a Definitive Ending (Ben Travers / IndieWire) What Cooper went through as Dougie still matters. That life isn’t one to be tossed aside in favor of a larger plot. As much was made clear when he knelt down with Janey-E (Naomi W...

James IS still cool (Darren Franich | Entertainment Weekly) An arm-wrestling match! A sparkling gym set! A conga line! A back massage! The thirteenth part of the revival season of Twin Peaks had all that and a bag of chips, plus a returning character from the original series, plus a frank conversat...

The two scenes that say a lot about The Return (Nick Mitchell | The i Paper) Other (lesser?) TV shows deal in neat character arcs, set-ups at the beginning that lead to pay-offs at the end, bad characters who are punished, good characters who are rewarded (eventually at least); an overall sense of ...

Re: Press Review

There’s No Backup for This (Scott Tobias | The New York Times) the 11th episode was a bracing reminder of how much Lynch’s characters — and, by extension, us — accept the premises they and we are given. When Hawk presents Sheriff Truman with a map “that’s very old but always current,” he accepts th...

Re: Press Review

A Game of Opposites (Clarisse Loughrey / The Independent) this episode bears perhaps one of the first examples of Lynch’s distinctive approach not being entirely successful, specifically in one scene that sees a violent rampage against a woman by a hitman, with Dougie next on his list of targets. h...

Re: Press Review

Grab a golden shovel and dig through part 5 of Twin Peaks (RoundTable / The AV Club) One of the biggest questions I had going into a new season of Twin Peaks was how the show would fare against the instant scrutiny of the recap age—whether the ambiguity that made the original series so memorable co...

Re: Press Review

Keeping Up With the Joneses (Sean T. Collins / Rolling Stone) The Wally Brando scene teaches us something else about Twin Peaks 3.0. With four hours of the The Return under our belts, it’s getting a bit easier to understand its overall approach. Is it leaning hard on all of the original’s most esot...

A Cry for Compassion (David Johnson /Cinematic Detective) “We’re Going Home” Why did Cooper choose the night of Laura’s death to intervene? He could’ve gone back years earlier and prevented her suffering. He could’ve exposed Bob before he did so much damage. https://cinematicdetective.files.wordpre...

2 Peaks 2 + 1 (David Phelps / Mubi) Changes to the past create ruptures into the present that result in multiple, simultaneous timelines in parallel universes. Just as different versions of Cooper can inhabit the same universe, the same version of Cooper can inhabit different universes simultaneous...

Re: Press Review

We're Noticing A Pattern With Twin Peaks & Sexual Assault (Rebecca Farley / Refinery29) In the Lodge, the alter-ego Diane literally rips to pieces and then disappears, leaving behind her seed. It's an unnerving metaphor for the reverberations of rape; the implications are that Diane, after being vi...
