Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


When “bimodal town” was broadcast in 1990, David Lynch was already a geek director famous in the American film industry for his strong personal style, but it was not until 25 years later that I picked up this wonderful flower that often blooms in the American drama industry. It was really a pity. The first work I came into contact with Lynch was the famous muhiland road. This work, which should have been made into a TV play, has become a film for various reasons. The complex and strange scenes intertwined by dreams and reality let me experience Lynch’s skills for the first time. Coincidentally, bimodal Town, broadcast 21 years earlier than muhiland Road, was originally just another crazy personal experiment of Lynch’s film career, but it turned into a monument in the history of American drama after some remodeling.

Although according to the brief introduction of the plot, “Shuangfeng town” is an out and out suspense drama, and it can even be said that many American dramas have more or less used it for reference, David Lynch’s shaping of “Shuangfeng town” is not just weaving a complex and simple crime story, The introduction of mysticism is almost a rebirth of the core for Shuangfeng town. Those psychoanalysis and dream reproduction are like a veil that can never be opened, luring the audience to explore step by step.

As the core of the plot development, the story closely revolves around Shuangfeng town, a secluded and pleasant town close to the north of the United States. This kind of closed space setting can hardly be perfect for a suspense series: the size of the space is just right, The number of characters and the arrangement of scenes are in a good range of freedom and controllability. In the first season, in addition to the description of the murder, a large part of the writing was assigned to the display of the complex relationship between the characters. Therefore, details emerge in endlessly, suspense is numerous and confusing. Although the murder of Laura is the focus of the plot, in the early stage of the development of the plot, although the audience watched it carefully, It is also difficult to distinguish how a person or a branch line is related to the main line. Generally speaking, this large-area layout is difficult to master, and it is easy to ignore one and lose the other, leaving loopholes that affect the logical perception and overall experience of the whole play. In this regard, Shuangfeng town has a very good grasp of the fire. The promotion of the plot is not short of twists and turns, but the pace is steady. Only in the closing stage of season 2, even though Lynch has great skills, he has scattered his pen and ink because he takes into account some unfinished branch lines, resulting in a certain degree of “out of focus” in the plot. After the end of the main plot of the Laura case, for a while, the whole play seemed to suddenly lose its direction. Many characters and events set up in the early stage did not get their own “ending”. Therefore, after a little adjustment, the new main line “night gate” supported the trend of the whole play. Although the plot of the branch line has been gradually repaired, there is no lack of haste and carelessness. In this way, the direct response is that the level of “Shuangfeng town” has declined inevitably in the second season. Not only the wind review, but also affected the willingness of the producer to follow-up actions. Even the actors of the play have a lot of resentment about it, so that in the film version of the prequel “walking with fire”, the script was rearranged, Many roles have to be adjusted. Although the ideal is beautiful, in front of the film and television industry machine, no matter how exquisite works of art have to compromise for business, the biggest regret of Shuangfeng town is this.

Back to the plot. The most attractive part of Shuangfeng town is its unique style of skillfully combining suspense and magic. It is a mystical picture rooted in religion, philosophy, myths and legends and various metaphysical theories. If the display of strange and strange in season 1 is only the tip of the iceberg, season 2 has evolved into David Lynch’s vigorous stirring and fierce fire cooking of the pot, and walking with the fire is the last process of putting the experimental products on the table. In season 1, Laura’s murder made a crack in the peaceful shell of the town. With the tracking of FBI agent Cooper, the hidden darkness of the town gradually exposed. Without exception, almost every character has secrets to spy on. In the process of these secrets emerging step by step, the complexity and entanglement of human nature also appeared again and again, Although the audience understood that Laura’s death was not a simple murder, there was no clear reference to the unexplained mysterious phenomena such as agent Cooper’s dream and the true or false hallucinations of other characters. Cooper relies on the guidance of dreams to find clues and eliminate suspects. Although the investigation method is completely unreasonable, it is not so difficult to accept in Lynch’s carefully set environment.

In season 2, the development of the plot obviously began to accelerate, Cooper’s dream became more and more strange, and Maddy’s illusion became more and more real and terrible. Until the case was solved, the impact of the sudden change of the plot on the audience was still shocking and strong. If Lynch himself was willing, Shuangfeng town could end Episode 9 of season 2 in another way. Later, the story of “night gate” and yunton Earl and the prequel of walking with fire are actually two-way complements to the previous part, so as to make the whole story more complete.

What impresses me most about Shuangfeng town is that “evil” and its irresistible fatalism pressure run through the role and even the course of human life, giving people an unspeakable sense of sadness. In the story of Shuangfeng town, “night gate” is a den of evil. The red curtain at the entrance is like a big mouth, swallowing all the goodness and light of human nature and releasing endless darkness and evil. Bob symbolizes the endless greed and killing of human beings. He invades people’s hearts and leaves a black hole that can never be filled. In addition to the disaster host, he also makes it difficult for people around him to escape. In the shadow of her biological father, Laura had no way to resist and had no choice. Even if she tried her best to preserve her personality, she could not avoid negative self degeneration in the end. The theory of “evil outweighs right” is not an iron law to Shuangfeng town. The ultimate embodiment of this fatalism is even more desperate in the ending of season 2. Even agent Cooper, the embodiment of justice, lost his way because he fell in love. Although Bob said to him “wrong, you are not the one I want” and promised to let him go back to the real world, in the end, Cooper was bound by another self incarnated by evil in human nature and trapped in the night gate. He walked through the maze like red curtain, and his ferocious face pursued him. It has also become one of the most classic and creepy scenes in bimodal town. The Movie Prequel “walking with fire” focuses on restoring the whole process of Laura’s murder. The power of evil has reached another extreme here. The audience clearly knows what the final outcome of the film is, but they have to watch the evil devour an originally pure and lovely person. In the second half of the film, the switching between day and night is extremely frequent, and the passage of time is crazy. Laura watched her biological father show his original shape step by step, but she could not avoid it. The seemingly absurd reality happens every day, but no one knows and has nowhere to tell. The scene in which the psychological activity of fear is alienated into reality is more shocking than the drama version. There are a lot of regular characters missing in the drama version, but the frequency of ghost ghosts in the “night gate” has greatly increased. Although at the end of walking with the fire, Laura, who was relieved by death, was finally able to break her tears into laughter, the angel guarding her floated low in the room of hell, and her eyes didn’t know where to look. This strong contrast brought an extremely strange beauty, or maybe, This is Lynch’s alternative compensation for the shocking anti idealistic ending of season 2, and it is unknown. In addition to Laura’s story, the lives of others in bimodal town are not nothing. The martels, Donna and James, Audrey and her father Benjamin, Sheriff Truman and Josie, Shirley and Bobby, Norma and ED, Andy and Lucy The ending of these characters is only rarely satisfactory. In the coming and going of those intrigues, love and hatred, their joys and sorrows, to some extent, outline the group images of the survival of American society at that time: chaotic family and neighborhood relations, intriguing interest struggle, young people’s brave efforts to pursue themselves, sadistic love between men and women Although these trivial details and life fragments distract the attention of the whole play, without them, there would not be such a bimodal town full of human evil and human beauty pulsating in the land and jungle of the United States, nor would this play stand in the classic forest of American plays for so many years.

In 2015, David Lynch announced that “bimodal town” will restart the third season, which also means that the actors of that year will return to this stage after years of baptism. At the end of season 2, Laura Palma said to Dale Cooper, “I will see you again in 25 years”. Now, the agreed deadline is coming, and time will take us back to the town in our memory again. Some unsatisfactory things may be completed again. In the current American drama industry, it is common to continue or remake old dramas. Some people do not agree with this, and others strongly support it. In my opinion, the classic freeze frame is certainly a beautiful scenery in film history, but many years later, it is a blessing for old friends to meet again and play in people. Twin peaks, see you in 2016.
