If the first four parts of Cameron Cloutier’s extension of Twin Peaks mythology were great, this fifth visit to the world both wondrous and strange is simply sublime. It starts with familiar strobe effects, disconcerting slash cuts from one image to the next and a series of uncomfortable, awkward close ups that thrust us into […]

There’s been so much written in the wake of Julee Cruise’s passing that I feel quite superfluous, but it’s amazing how many people are saying the same things that I’m feeling.

Hi there, I’m just checking in to offer a few of my thoughts on Act IV of Cameron Cloutier’s Twin Peaks fan film, Queen of Hearts. And also to try to get “Groove is in the Heart” out of my head. This one took us to a number of places and in a number of […]

Hey everyone, Passing another milestone tonight: my 300th post on this site. I suppose its fitting that it should be about the same thing I usually waffle on about: Twin Peaks.

I’ve been thinking of doing something for Bobby Briggs for a while. I was lucky enough to meet Dana Ashbrook in 2014 and he was such a genuine, gracious chap that I grew in appreciation of his character even more.
