belated December 2021 Patreon podcasts: LOST IN THE MOVIES #86 - Twin Peaks Cinema: Mysterious Skin (+ old/new Dune archive reading/capsule, Twin Peaks Reflections: Pinkle, Mayor, Lana, Big Ed's Gas Farm and house, Who's Donna's father?/Eraserhead & more) plus TWIN PEAKS CONVERSATIONS


The last new "Twin Peaks Cinema" topic of 2021 was actually, in terms of publication, the first of 2022, since it went up on New Year's Day. I've had Mysterious Skin in mind for a long time, as it's probably one of the closest films to Fire Walk With Me both in terms of its subject matter and how it chooses to deal with the heavy theme. This makes for a wide-ranging discussion, with a long aside on Parts 17 and 18 of The Return and the question of how it relates to the seemingly unsurpassable conclusion of Fire Walk With Me (also a major topic in recent Twin Peaks Conversations, including one linked below). Other parts of this main podcast episode use the "Miss Twin Peaks" episode as a springboard for lighter aspects of Peaks - particularly a trio of goofballs from the second season - as well as thoughts on old and new Dune alike in the wake of my first trip to a movie theater in nearly two years. I wasn't able to include the various bonus sections - feedback, podcast recommendations, etc - this time, and they'll probably have to wait until my Olympics series is over (if all goes well, I'll be resuming that in a week and a half; if all doesn't go well, it will go the way of other recent abandoned projects). But I did want to make room for that one film capsule since it ties into my choice of archive reading. It's also interesting to consider that despite their many differences, both Dune and Mysterious Skin belong to the science fiction genre...after a fashion.
