I am sure I will continue to have scintillating thoughts as I continue to endure this show, so I may as well start a thread here rather than throw them away on Twitter & Faceborg.
The best way to comprehend what mathematicians mean by Infinity is to contemplate the weirdness of the new Twin Peaks
The show is like what aliens from another galaxy would make, if they tried to imitate our TV & got everything wrong.
With Twin Peaks 2017, I think Lynch takes the point of view of his inter-dimensional predator, decimating humankind while viewing them as stupid, bumbling puppets incapable of grasping the reality they are lost in.
The funniest thing about Lynch’s new Twin Peaks is imagining the expressions on the faces of the show’s money men when they first saw it.
Does #DavidLynch care how bad #TwinPeaks is as long as it’s weird? He takes badness to surreal levels, and vice versa.
After watching episode 4 of #TwinPeaks, I was compelled to report Lynch to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Actors.
I was also compelled to start my own “fan-edit”: to rescue Lynch’s genius from his willed perversity and asininity. Watch this space.
I don’t think I have ever had the experience of feeling compelled to go on watching a show that at the same time I find almost unwatchably awful. That’s a feat in & of itself.
Is Lynch’s point with Twin Peaks to show us just how distorted, pointless, and grotesque our addiction to pop culture is?
The show creates a new medium: aesthetics as torture.
