Twin Peaks: The Phenomenon, Showtime’s Official 3-Part Documentary Featuring David Lynch

Showtime recaps the 27-year (and going) phenomenon of Twin Peaks in a 3-part documentary, bookended by co-creator David Lynch himself.

“It was surreal is what it was.”
—David Lynch on the unexpected worldwide success of Twin Peaks

In addition to interviews with David Lynch, Kyle MacLachlan, Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook, Chrysta Bell, Kimmy Robertson, Harry Goaz, Dana Ashbrook, Jim Belushi, Robert Knepper, director Lesli Linka Glatter, and Showtime’s Gary Levine, the documentary pays extensive attention to creative Twin Peaks fans including John Thorne of Wrapped in Plastic magazine, Francine ‘The Lucid Dream’ and Schaffer The Darklord of The Pink Room Burlesque, artist Brian Linss, Kirk Salopek, Dessa Poljak and David Jamison of Silencio, Rob and Deanne Lindley, and Glenn and Pam Allen of the Twin Peaks Festival, and Ben Durant of Twin Peaks Unwrapped. And if you pay close attention, you’ll notice the work of Rinaldo Zoontjes, Pachu M. Torres, the music of Silencio, and tons of other fans (even including yours truly).

  1. The interviews are great, but whoever edited these documentaries needs to be shot. They clash so harshly with the tone of The Return. It makes Twin Peaks seem like zany comedy (surf music… really?).
