Lynch's male gaze
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?!
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*
