I still want to see the extra hour of scenes with Twin Peaks regulars that were cut out, all the funny stuff with Pete, etc. Apparently all the goofy hijinks didn't mesh well with the deeply depressing Laura Palmer story.
For some reason looking at these posts clicked for me what's wrong with Lynch and tape - he was one of the directors who contributed a scene to a film, forget the title, wherein each director shot one roll in the original film camera, Lumiere something...
Asked why he made films, he said it was a great medium in which to explore the life of the mind, "Lost Highway" and "Mulholland Drive" being two brilliant examples. Both films are airtight, BTW, not willy-nilly like some folks think. Anyway, my mind doesn't live in tape land, and that's the problem as I see it.
How about you guys - do your inner visual thoughts look like video tape?
