I've always assumed Cahiers counted the entire run of the TV series plus FWWM as a film, considering that all of it was overseen by Lynch even if he didn't direct every episode.

I'm with you, Finch. That being said, if anyone (without the level of OCD I have re: breaking up box sets) plans to buy this and doesn't plan on doing anything with the UHD disc, reach out to me and I'll pay a nice chunk of change for it. Having that episode from The Return in that resolution is worth it to me.
Reminder - if you get this set and don't need the UHD disc, I'll send you... oh, let's say $20 for it - just slide into the PMs

I'll be glad to have the pilot and episode 8 in UHD just wish they could've expanded that to UHD's of all Lynch-directed episodes of seasons 1 and 2 (he only directed six episodes total, including the pilot) and the season 3 finale which I think was even better than episode 8.

That's the reason I can't bring myself to buy this set, because I'm holding out hope that the entire series will be restored in UHD and released as a box set. In fact, I'm almost certain this will happen eventually. That said, my temptation to see this stuff is too powerful not to want to get my hands on this disc from someone who's UHD-agnostic and has completely written off the format, which is a surprisingly strong contingent on this forum

This is exactly my thought too. Although I wanna own the third season mostly so if the current blu set drops in price during black friday I'll snag otherwise I'll wait for the inevitable 4k box.

Discussion of The Return topping the Cahiers decade list begins here, with the posts from this thread about this moved because it quickly veered off topic to discussing other films on the list, etc.

Janus tweets The Return image with FWWM quote

Odd Janus would tweet this. Can't imagine anyone but the hugest Peaks fans wanting to triple dip on a Criterion release of The Return. And an image from The Return would be weird to use to remind people that there's a Criterion edition of FWWM (though it does quote from the film).

I got the original blu release of The Return at an insane sale price and wouldn't mind a double dip if they pretty this up features wise but this is actually one of the few things I'd like to see a UHD release of down the line and Criterion will more than most likely not do that.

Also wasn't there talk that Lynch reedited the entire thing into whole new (and shorter) version? Maybe this will be a very odd move to do a standalone release of it it in fact Lynch did do a new editm

Isn't it usual for Janus to tweet things with no particular meaning except a more general link towards a director ?

So there's this 4 1/2 hour "explanation" video for Twin Peaks that's nearing a million views; right now it's the very first thing that pops up if you type "Twin Peaks" into youtube. I think it's a shame that it's become such a popular interpretation because I think it approaches Twin Peaks in entirely the wrong way, but other people may feel differently so I thought I'd post it here.

What's the right way and how does this approach diverge from that way?

I'd rather watch the videos by Lost In The Movies than the one linked to above. The guy is a bit full of himself and his Lynch impersonation is cringe worthy. I tuned out after 15 minutes.

I think this post on Reddit puts it better than I could. "Worldfaraway" is sometimes too personal in his criticism, but overall I think that in both the OP and the comment section he does a good job articulating what I think the problems with this video are. But people can check out the video themselves and make up their own mind.
