Peaks & Firs

So despite being a fan of David Lynch I had never actually seen Twin Peaks. I have to be honest only started to scratch the surface when it comes to his filmography; I’ve seen a handful of his films like Mullholand Drive, Eraserhead, Dune, and Blue Velvet. I’ve read(actually I LISTENED to the audiobook read by him) his book on transcendental mediation, I had never seen Twin Peaks. Honestly I think it was because it wasn’t accessible and I just didn’t have the time to commit to binge watching it… until recently.
With the release of Twin Peaks: The Return it seemed like the perfect time to get into it, also because now both series were available to stream.

I finished the first series in a few days… and I THINK… I THINK… I understand. Or at least that I understand as much as can be expected when one watches something made by Lynch. That being said I am halfway through the second series and sweet zombie christ… I am so lost.

I am hoping that by the end I’ll be able to make sense of it, regardless I am enjoying the ride. Just like the original the visuals are spectacular, the foreshadowing, and little easter eggs hidden about are brilliant. I whole heartedly suggest watching both series if you’ve got the time.

One of my favourite London designers Rosita Bonita has created a collection of jewellery inspired by the series that I’m now able to appreciate all the more having finally dove head first into Twin Peaks.

 

I wouldn’t suggest Twin Peaks as a place to start if you’re unfamiliar with Lycnh’s works, maybe Mullholand Drive or Blue Velvet as they’ve got at least one foot firmly in reality. Twin peaks has been hard to watch it times, but I’m glad I’m finally doing it.
