最后一集《双峰》让我们坠入深渊，对它的讨论永远不会停止。“发生了什么？” 这个问题的关键并不在于这是个结局悲惨与否（我们近乎绝望地期待着happy ending）。这个结局成功了，以一种不可思议的方式：令我们在世界的角落下沉。它刺穿了表象。它触动我们，让我们在身体中感受到它，感觉到那种创伤，林奇的目的是让我们在现实中有所反应。于是，他有必要让作品变得“真实”。这个伟大的结局做了些什么？在一场非常非常漫长，可以消除一切的行程后，我们进入了看上去真实的双峰镇（Double R餐厅以一个特别的角度出现）。两位演员历经许久，从一个荒废的世界归来，发现自己面对面站在Sarah Palmer家现实中的主人（不过在剧中有个令人熟悉的名字，Tremond）面前。林奇把我们扔在这一刻，在一条路中央，如Cooper和Laura一样不知情，于是一种罕见的效应发生了，我们的感官更加敏锐，听着寂静的夜晚。就这样，我们呆在这条街上，不论有什么意义，也不论是否能去理解发生了什么。这些角色被投射到了我们的现实中，而我们观众则被投射进了剧集中，打开了另一个世界。林奇不想抛弃我们，与此相反他让观众面对自己，“今夕是何年？” 轮到我们来回答：2017年，而一切都可以从新开始。
人们可以说林奇的目标是关乎道德的（内心善恶的战斗）或者抽象的（探讨邪恶的存在形式），但这部《双峰》的挑战在于转移到政治上，这是林奇之前未做过的事。我们从没见过他在作品中展现对这个时代、这个美国的担忧，用一连串关于令他作呕的“红脖”白人垃圾、对愚蠢的持枪暴力的讽刺；以及反过来，对住在拖车中，被迫卖血生存的穷人的关注（“fucking government”）。这个世界活在暴力的危害下，就如某一位Mitchum兄弟，在见证了一位开面包车的会计师的暴力后说的：“大家现在都饱受压力。” 但这并不是简单的谴责，这部《双峰》就是一位社会运动家的“天启”传单，希望一切都能在灭亡前改变。林奇相信我们能改变这个世界，而他用一切力量去触动和引导我们。
The last episode of Twin Peaks has plunged us into abysses and since the discussions never end. What happened ? The question is not whether it ends badly or not (that desperate attempts to believe in the happy ending!). The end succeeds. She succeeds in something incredible: to sink a corner in our world. She pierces appearances. It touches us deeply in our life. We feel it in our body, we feel this wound on our side. Lynch's goal is to make us act in the real world. It was therefore necessary to make the film "real". What does this extraordinary end do? After a long long night crossing, which gets rid of everything, we enter the Twin Peaks city, as if it were the real one (the Double R seen from a new angle), the two actors coming back so far that the world seems deserted, and they find themselves face to face with the owner, in the life, of the house of Sarah Palmer, but decked out with a name of fiction that we know too well (Tremond), and Lynch leaves us there, in the middle of the street, as obsolete as Coop and Laura, with an effect of real rarity, the senses sharpened, listening to the silence of the night. There we are, in this street, and we stay there. Whatever the meaning, what matters is to stay there to understand what happened. The characters are projected in our world, we are projected into the show: this conflagration opens a door to a new world. Lynch does not want to lose us, on the contrary he puts us in front of ourselves. What year is it ? It's up to us to answer: in 2017. And everything can start from there.
It is no exaggeration to say that Twin Peaks is the great political work of our time. Lynch built his Tower of Invincibility, the one he tried to build in vain in real life: he did it in fiction, an 18-episode Babel Tower, to change our lives. This tower is not a flooded lodge nor a paradise where everything is fine, and it is not populated only by guards armed with a green glove of superheroes. This tower rises in the dark of the Dark Age and its fighters support as many victories as defeats. We are devastated by the end of Twin Peaks. But, according to the good old precept of Eisenstein, a film that ends badly is more likely to provoke revolt. This open end, as in all the great modern works, gives us room, welcomes us: not only to pick up the pieces from a hermeneutic point of view, which is already exciting and funny, but because it it's up to us to do it. Lynch passes the baton. The green glove is given to us. " Why me ? Why not you ?"
One could say that Lynch's aim is ethical (the eternal fight of good against evil) or metaphysical (the question of the existence of evil), but the challenge of this Twin Peaks is to switch to politics, what he had never done. Never had we seen this concern to speak of his time, of America, with this litany of beaufs white trash that he vomits, and that he can not help each episode to show in their armed violence and their stupidity, and conversely these poor people, in caravans, forced to sell their blood to survive ("fucking government"). It is the world as it is that engenders violence: "Everyone is under a lot of stress now," said one of the Mitchum brothers, scared by the violence of a chartered accountant. But the series far exceeds the simple denunciation. Twin Peaks is an activist leaflet for everything to change, an apocalyptic work. Lynch believes we can change this world. And he does everything possible to touch us and get there.
The immense beauty of Twin Peaks is that Lynch is leading the way. This is his gesture that must be watched. He who does everything possible, who braves the time, creates a bridge with the past as never in the history of cinema, invents in a handful of years an odyssey of 18 hours, which shows that the unimaginable is within reach of hand, he who gathers his friends, invites strangers, takes care of everyone, he who accompanies us for 25 years at least (it is definitely the filmmaker of a whole generation) and who comes to talk to us in the secret of the ear: it creates what some would call an oasis, a utopia or a community - but these words connoted, tired, folded, lack the power of manufacturing reality, global reality, that Twin Peaks. Is all this just a dream? To us to see.
When Dale Cooper finally comes out of the Black Lodge and falls into infinity, the tree shouts: "Non existent!" Yes, what we see is non-existent. What an unexpected gift makes us David Lynch, 25 years later! Season 3 of Twin Peaks, entirely made by him, is a fireworks display. In one of his rare interviews, he says that he has designed a series less than an 18-hour film, to be discovered every week (18 parts, until September 3). A film that does not stop repeating and that multiplies the peaks. It's hard to be astonished at the New York episode that Part 3 comes with his head of Eraserhead, then Part 6's hyper-violent, then Part 8. Two pictures interviews in the office of Gordon Cole, Kafka and the atomic bomb , And BOUM, five episodes later, the bomb exploded in 1945 and created the metamorphosis of a mutant insect. Every time he takes a step towards the old world of Twin Peaks, a leap back always sends us back further. Lynch knows he has captured a "big fish," as he says in his poetic art Catching the Big Fish. Gordon Cole confirms it when he repeats (like Dougie) what Denise tells her: "You are on something Big - He agrees: Big".
Season 3 is an immense gesture as if Lynch wanted to communicate all his ideas. Create the great work, synthesis, while avoiding compilation. And at the same time that he ventures farther, he does not forget Twin Peaks. The season is done without some characters, it's not their story, and yet these reunions are expected, Lynch offers them: James, Bobby, a sequence is enough. It barely supports and is devastated. He knows he's driving a Rolls. But even a Rolls purrs. Then he jumps elsewhere, constantly changing ladder, but without spice. It is enough for a beast that slowly enters the mouth of a teenager so that all the cinema of horror starts again from scratch. The absence of immediate explanation drives our mind, we seek, we think, we imagine. He plays with the cat and the mouse, but we are in good hands, filled with signs and emotions. What the periodicity allows precious is to see a work of art create before our eyes.
An unprecedented emotion also arises from these reunions with the actors. The three roles given to Kyle MacLachlan (exceptional) recall Laura Dern's role in the Inland Empire. Both times it is the impulse of an actor, a friend, who gives the green light. These two actors he discovered when they were 20 years old, they loved each other in Blue Velvet and in life: she alone could inevitably play Diane. There is also the dedication to the missing actors, even though they appear in the series: Catherine Coulson (Woman with the Log), Miguel Ferrer (Albert), Warren Frost (Dr. Hayward) are filmed for the last time. The series takes the form of a farewell to friends. Nothing but the plan of Harry Dean Stanton on his bench! We find him where he'd been staring at the stars at the end of A True Story. All these ideas are overwhelming. Even on the screen, under the guise of Gordon Cole, Lynch always walks with Albert and new recruit Tammy, and he needs besides Diane. He wants to gather everyone in his Noah's Ark.
Talking about a current film is a perilous exercise, especially when it takes on such a fragmented form. Our equally fragmented ensemble replaces the work, multiplies entries and celebrates ideas (hence "The Alphabet" in homage to its short film of 1968). Our wish is to accompany the readers whom Lynch will certainly have in the meantime brought to other worlds. To give also want to review the first episodes of the season because each is so new that it tends to erase the previous one. Now it is indeed a whole that presents itself, piece by piece. Review episodes reserves a different experience. It is an icy world, and yet it is well, because intelligence, curiosity, beauty, love, if they threaten to disappear, are everywhere in Lynch's eyes. In the old Twin Peaks, Gordon Cole, the filmmaker's spokesperson (or rather loudspeaker), was shouting in the middle of the chaos: "Let your smile be your umbrella." Let your smile be your umbrella.
