Lynch basically shot 2 movies when he filmed Fire Walk. The other is now included in this version. Lot's a great scenes involving the FBI agent played by David Bowie.
Raw notes from my eighth viewing:
"Turkey in the corn" - reference to Garmonbozia, her pain and misery. Laura realizes she is lost and has to trade/sacrifice her budding life, love, and happiness.
Bobby and James. Again, the classic SP/NF Brigg's-Meyer's temperament differential.
Reality is not important to Laura anymore. Her mind is focused on what her purpose is, having come to a true understanding of what is going on behind reality.
And is thus abandoned. "Faster and faster. For a long a time you wouldn't feel anything. Then you'd burst into fire...forever. And the angels wouldn't help you because they've all gone away." Laura is numb, in a dark place where no light resides.
Intuition - Lynch's daughter and "Diary of Laura Palmer". Let her loose to explore.
Deeper things trying to influence our fates which must be fought against.
Seemingly inanimate objects are spies.
Laura is trying to live her life fast enough before her time comes. Trying to experience all.
Kyle McLachlan is clearly angry.
Need to re-watch series again. Lingering questions are answered for points of reference here.
The monster under her bed is alive and abusing and inhabiting her father.
Donna is a different actress.
Everyone is speaking below commonly accepted terms with a subtext between the lines.
There are only a few brief moments where Bob leaves Leland.
California is an epicenter where much expectation is generated in the rest of the world.
Laura is very aware that she doesn't want to lead Donna astray.
Donna is watching someone die.
The only person who truly understands Laura's plight is the Log Lady.
Everything around Laura is highlighting her loss.
Laura is worried about Bob noticing anyone but her.
Laura realizes she is just a small cog in a vast machination.
The ring Laura has accepted has been passed from victim to victim.
