from really uncomfortable moments (especially couples fighting). One episode
ends with a 3.5 minute shot of a bartender sweeping up peanut shells from the
The whole series lasts 18 hours; Lynch exhausts the viewer’s expectation of
‘plot movement’ early on by shifting the pacing. Pacing and sound design really
put this in an ‘experimental’ space.
I know it’s not film, and I know it’s pretty easy to tag the whole thing
‘Brechtian’ and move on, but it’s remarkable that this ended up on Showtime
last year ... Every time an email comes through answering this question I think
about the remarkable slowness and prevalence of single camera long shots; I
need to say it :)
