It hasn’t been the greatest week to be a David Lynch fan. He hasn’t shot anything substantial since “Inland Empire” in 2007, and has focused his time and energy on ropey albums, Parisian clubs, fragrances and cameos in “Louie,” each to varying degrees of reward. But it was announced last fall that the 69-year-old filmmaker would helm a revived “Twin Peaks” for Showtime, and the internet seemingly rose as one and rejoiced. Sadly, this past Sunday news emerged that negotiations between the director and network had fallen apart, and if the continuation moves forward, it appears it’ll be without Lynch.
As such, Lynchians are probably drowning their sorrows in Pabst Blue Ribbons and cherry pie, but to allow some hope that we’ll see some kind of moving image from the director before too long, below you can find a supercut/video essay/tribute to his work from Martin Kessler.
But that’s not all! Lynch fans will also be pleased to learn that the director’s surreal sitcom/web series “Rabbits,” as featured in “Inland Empire,” is now available to watch all the way through, both in its original form and with a live improvised soundtrack. “Rabbits” marked an early venture into the web series genre for the director and features Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Hanning, although both are unrecognizable under bunny heads.
