Familiar Strange Beginnings
June 4, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
While much of the criticism of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return focuses on its non-sequiturs, time shifts, and general incomprehensibility, it’s probably wise to remember that it was always, sort of, this way. Here’s a Lynch short from 1967 called Fictitious Anacin Commercial, which has all the ingredients which would later invade his feature film work — a normal setting, a man perhaps suffering a normal headache, and then things worsen quickly, perhaps foreshadowing a psychotic break and a visitation, in the ’90s, for the original Twin Peaks from “Killer BOB.” —Eric Gould
