On your recommendation, just finished season 1 of Twin Peaks.
Really good so far. I know there are a lot of cop dramas turned paranormal activities that were spawned from TP. Are any of the modern takes any good?
I'd recommend Eureka. Show on SyFy. Country sheriff's town is turned upside down after a secret DARPA research facility is built on the outskirts. soykafty special effects, but the plots are always fun and interesting.
>>5799 No, there's nothing to "get" but it's not a typical anything. It's one of the most unsettling films I've ever seen.
Lost Highway got me as well, though in a different way. I tried watching Twin Peaks with some friends who were obsessed wirh it when it was first airing and I just said "wtf is going here" to which I was told I should have watched it from the beginning. Then it got cancelled.
>>6616 No one likes Dune. Not Lynch fans, not Herbert fans. Lynch himself thinks it was a failure though he blames editors and others.
Alejandro Jodorowsky was supposed to make Dune, before Star Wars was even made. Imagine if that was the definitive modern space opera instead of Star Wars? It cost too much money and Hollywood distrusted him so it was canned. There's a documentary called Jodorowsky's Dune... the guy is a maniac. He talks about Lynch too. Definitely worth finding.
>>6619 Considering the people working for him including HR Giger, I'd say not. To see what it would have looked like, the general aesthetics and some pretty exact designs ended up in everything from Star Wars to Alien in the next few years as his team scattered to the four winds.
Absolutely love lynch even at his worst his work exudes creativity and that's really saying something. Mullohand drive is a favorite. Something about the tone, the sound, the look it all really clicks for me. And I love that film.
I like Lynch (really wanted to go to his festival in LA this last summer :( ) and I love Twin Peaks. The 2017 continuation of the series will prolly be a huge let down, but I'm hyped nonetheless. The guy exudes creativity and passion.
