I love Twin Peaks and I'm not claiming that Lynch is a misogynist, but what's going on with the women in this show?!

Poking fun at the male gaze, I believe.  Deliberately annoying people because he can.

Coppula eam se non posit acceptera jocularum

That's an interesting profile picture you've got going on there.

We had a somewhat fruitful discussion about it here . And here.

Briefly:  how can one critique the male gaze using the male gaze??

Maybe.... by casting yourself (the auteur director) in a role that makes you appear a grotesque caricature of a scopophile?  ...  Maybe...  Nah... probably not.

Honestly, I'm just glad nobody has been "sexy raped" in The Return.  

Yet. *crosses fingers*

Now what really would be interesting, would be if each separate thread took on a unique different masculine/feminine quality.
