In the words of Lynch kindred spirit Kate Bush, “Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Unbelievable.” Discussed: Lynch's new way of problematizing 1950s “innocence” in the course of opening up Laura Palmer's story to a broader social and metaphysical world. Elise talks Lynch's psychosexual biography and advances her “Laura Palmer c'est moi” theory. Dave talks Calvinism and superhero comics. We agree that Laura Palmer is both Christ and Superman, like a Buffy that doesn't kick ass. Dave rejects therapy as a solution for Lynch protagonists.
