Der US-Bundesstaat Washington im Nordwesten der USA diente als Naturkulisse für David Lynchs Kultserie „Twin Peaks“, die zu Beginn der 1990er Jahre auf Sendung ging. Sie zelebriert die großen Weiten des Evergreen States und natürlich Lynchs Vorliebe für alles Groteske und Beklemmende. „Twin Peaks“ erzählt von Frauen und Männern im amerikanischen Hinterland – und von einer Kleinstadt, die nur auf den ersten Blick ganz normal erscheint.

David Lynch’s Film Blue Velvet ist eine vielschichtige, in Teilen surreale Abhandlung menschlicher Konflikte. Die klassische Dichotomie Gut gegen Böse wird ebenso personifiziert und symbolisch aufbereitet wie das alles überragende Thema Traum gegen Realität.

Es zeigen sich schon Mitte der 1980er Jahre Stilmittel und Interessen Lynchs, wie sie später noch in Twin Peaks auftauchen sollen. Lynch demontiert durch geschickte und teils ironisch plakative Mittel die perfekte Welt der amerikanischen Vorstadt und lässt den Zuschauer durch Kyle Maclachlans Augen hinter die Fassade blicken… theblogcinematic.wordpress.com

What living director has drawn the descriptor “surreal” more often than David Lynch? If you’ve seen, or rather experienced, a few of his films — particularly EraserheadLost HighwayMulholland Dr., or Inland Empire, or even the first half of his television series Twin Peaks — you know he’s earned it. Like any surrealist worth his salt, Lynch creates his own version of reality, with its own set of often unfathomable and inexplicably but emotionally and psychologically resonant qualities. In 1987, the year after his breakthrough Blue Velvet opened in theaters, the BBC apparently thought him enough of an authority on the matter of cinematic surrealism to enlist him to present an episode of Arena on the subject.

Rabbits is a 2002 series of short video films written and directed by David Lynch. It depicts three humanoid rabbits in a room, played by Scott Coffey, Laura Elena Harring and Naomi Watts. Their disjointed conversations are interrupted by a random laugh track. Rabbits is presented with the tagline „In a nameless city deluged by a continuous rain… three rabbits live with a fearful mystery“. As with most of David Lynch’s films, the score was composed by Angelo Badalamenti.

Rabbits originally consisted of series of eight short episodes shown exclusively on DavidLynch.com, but is no longer available there. It is now available on DVD in the „Lime Green Set“ collection of Lynch’s films, in a re-edited four-episode version. In addition, the set and some footage of the rabbits are reused in Lynch’s Inland Empire.

The director made four mini episodes in an advertising campaign for Georgia coffee company

David Lynch is no stranger to a surreal commercial side-project. The Eraserhead director has already done much more than his fair share; shooting obscure advertising campaigns for pregnancy testsAlka-Seltzer and even Barilla pasta sauce. However, it’s his secret history with Japan’s Georgia Coffee that’s probably the strangest of them all.

Making the most of Agent Dale Cooper’s love for “damn good coffee”, the company commissioned Lynch back in the 90s to reimagine the Twin Peaks world for a special campaign. The four commercials, which were unearthed this week by Open Culture, act as a mini “season” of the show – reconstructing the old sets and reuniting the original cast (including the much-missed Log Lady). They follow Agent Cooper as he tries to solve the mystery of a missing Japanese woman called Asami, while gorging on cherry pie and endless cans of delicious Georgia coffee.- dazeddigital.com/

Lee Friedlander, born in 1934, began photographing the American social landscape in 1948.
In the 1960s and 70s Friedlander evolved an influential and often imitated visual language of urban „social landscape,“ with many of his photographs including fragments of store-front reflections, structures framed by fences, posters and street signs.

Who killed Laura Palmer? If the answer comes unbidden to your lips, you’re no doubt old enough to have spent much of 1990 glued to Twin Peaks, cult director David Lynch’s supremely creepy series. (Note: US-based viewers can watch the show for free on Hulu.) The name probably won’t mean much to those who entered the noughties with a wobbly toddle, and why would it?  Murder victim Palmer may have driven the original series, but she didn’t rank so much as a mention in Sesame Street’s 1991 parody, Twin Beaks, above.- openculture
