Laura Dern Has High Praise for David Lynch's New TWIN PEAKS Episodes
Jurassic Park star Laura Dern is currently making waves on HBO's Big Little Lies, but she'll soon be a part of a different limited series that's far more mysterious. Dern is one of the new members of the incredibly eclectic cast of David Lynch's Twin Peaks revival, and in an interview with Vanity Fair (via Uproxx), she had some high praise for what Lynch has done with the new episodes:
“It’s brave and fiery and deep, poignant and hilarious...You must always watch when David Lynch makes anything. I believe it’s what keeps art going. It should be a prerequisite.”
I'm watching the original Twin Peaks for the first time right now in preparation for the new episodes, and man, it's such a weird show. I'm about eight episodes into season two, and after every episode concludes, I find myself baffled that this was on a major TV network during prime time in the 1990s. People must have been losing their minds at the sheer strangeness of it. But I'm with Dern on this one: Lynch may be a bizarre filmmaker, but he's definitely a guy who always creates compelling material — even if I can't quite wrap my head around all of it sometimes.
Twin Peaks returns on Showtime on May 21, 2017 at 9pm.
