David Lynch is about to unleash an 18-hour serial on the world. What are the chances of it being great?

    The fact that nobody has opined on this thread speaks volumes, doesn’t it?
    As a longtime Lynch fanatic, I’m hoping for the best, but prepared for the (absolute) worst.
    Truth be told, there isn’t a single movie opening this summer that I’m as enthused about as the tantalizing prospect of 18 hours of Lynch-directed cable television.
    Fingers crossed.

    It has a good chance of being great, I imagine, but I’d be more enthusiastic if it were going to be on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or HBO Now, because those are the services I’m paying for now, and I don’t really want to cough up for another one. So I expect I’ll come to it way after the fact. I’ll try to maintain my optimism until then.

    I feel your pocket book pain, Yancy.
    I purposely held onto Showtime after the recent “Homeland” season ended just for “Twin Peaks.”

    I’m excited as hell. I rewatched Fire, Walk With Me last night and it holds up. Also watched the pilot. It, too, holds up, although all the rotary dial phones, even in 1990, were funny. Gonna rewatch the whole series before this starts.

    As it stands this may be the last Lynch directed project we ever get so I’m gonna savor it and go into it with arms open.

“It’s a film festival’s job—and increasingly so—to create moments of recognition, of enjoyment, of shock, of learning. Not of consumerism. Not of implementing cultural policy. But moments without pretence, unclouded by vested interests, by intervention, by cynicism, by everyday business. Committed to nothing but the thing itself. Under obligation to nothing, to no one, not even to the filmmakers themselves. To basically seek access to a form that does not yet exist, a place no one has been to, a time that has not yet come. ’A form that thinks, and a thought that forms,’ as Jean-Luc Godard has it.”
~ Hans Hurch, late director of the Viennale

“There’s a mass belief that if you’re texting, you’re somehow not interrupting the conversation—you’re not being rude. It’s an illusion of multitasking. I started filmmaking when people didn’t expect to have a phone on set, when it would’ve been seen as unprofessional to pull out a phone. Phones have become a huge distraction, and people work much better without them. At first it causes difficulty, but it really allows them to concentrate on what they’re doing. Everybody understands. I’ve had a lot of crews thank me. With a set, we’re trying to create a bubble of alternate reality.”
~ Christopher Nolan
