“This is American darkness - darkness in color,
darkness with a happy ending. Lynch might turn
out to be the first populist surrealist - a Frank
Capra of dream logic.“
"Maybe I'm sick, but I want to see that
again." (audience member overheard by Kael
after a screening of Blue Velvet)

“I have never been able to sit
through a whole episode of
Twin Peaks. It's a postmodern
soap opera, which means that
every time someone on
screen eats a piece of apple
pie, you can hear a thousand
students start typing their
doctoral dissertations on
‘Twin Peaks: David Lynch and
the Semiotics of Cobbler.’”

Lynchian. David Foster Wallace on
Lynch’s style as a filmmaker:
“both extremely personal and extremely
remote”
“the absence of linearity and narrative
logic”
“the heavy multivalence of the symbolism”
“the glazed opacity of the characters’ faces”
“the weird ponderous quality of the
dialogue”
“the regular deployment of grotesques as
figurants”
“the precise, painterly way scenes are
staged and lit”
“the overlush, possibly voyeuristic way that
violence, deviance, and general hideousness
are depicted”
Movies vs. Television
Twin Peaks DNA: “dreamy,
cinematic (rather than televisual)
style, slow pacing, extreme
violence, emotional excess,
disturbing sexuality, strung-out
narrative, accentuation of subtext,
controversial subject matter, lush
scoring, uncanny dream
sequences, the demand for
complete attention it placed upon
television viewers accustomed to
distraction,” its reliance on “a
particular kind of irony where the
very macabre and the very
mundane combine in such a way
as to reveal the former’s perpetual
containment in the latter” (David
Foster Wallace).
