Wrapped in Podcast, Episode 26, Part 2: “The Bourgeois Idea That a Narrative Has To Go Somewhere.”
On part two of Wrapped in Podcast's discussion of Mulholland Drive, the gang walks through 10 "clues" to the movie provided by David Lynch himself as part of the promotion of the DVD release of his landmark 2001 film. Topics discussed include J.R.'s infected hangnail, those 10 clues, and how David Lynch is the devil and responsible for the destruction of Billy Ray Cyrus's family. We at one point reference this theory from a Mulholland Drive fan site: http://www.mulholland-drive.net/theories/06.htm
Wrapped in Podcast Episode 26, Part 1: "Apex Narcissist"
If you’re listening to the latest episode of “Wrapped in Podcast”, you may have won a jitterbug contest! The full four-member complement of America’s favorite legal podcast is back in action to review the David Lynch film that one panelist’s Amazon Echo referred to as “Mulholland Doctor”.
Host J.R. Parker speculates about Justin Theroux’s apparent second puberty and leads a unanimous cabal of critics who are wholly unsympathetic to current complaints concerning the lack of chapter stops on latter-day DVDs. Non-lawyer Jeff Fallis provides professorial insights into the combustion of the film’s 88-minute cut, the extraordinarily absurd oddness of dream logic, and the director’s cinematic send-off of the 20th century. First-time viewer T. Kyle King louses up the introductions by engaging in premature explication and briefly flummoxes Ken Walczak with a wildly unconventional theory. For his part, Ken hates the slapstick hit man scene, sees significance in the rictus grins of the tiny elderly pod people, and offers a thorough overview of “Gilda” and its resonance for “Mulholland Drive”.
During their deep dive into Lynch’s 2001 film noir, the crew engages in a wide-ranging exchange including allusions to the age before cell phones, apex narcissism, Bikini Atoll, “Blue Velvet”, “Bye Bye Birdie”, Nancy Drew, Doctor Faustus, gigantic copper fish, “The Godfather”, “Inception”, “Jackie Brown”, karma, Elmore Leonard, “Lost”, “Lost Highway”, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, pixellated genitalia, psychosexual foreplay, quantum physics, Paul Revere, “Riverdale”, “The Sopranos”, “Sunset Boulevard”, Melania Trump, “Twin Peaks” episodes from the European pilot to the Showtime finale, “The Usual Suspects”, and the Venn diagram of perverts and purists.
Join the gang for the first hour of their examination of “Mulholland Drive”, complete with Ken’s tantalizing cliffhanger conclusion designed to whet the audience’s appetite for the second installment of Episode 26 of “Wrapped in Podcast”!
Wrapped in Podcast Episode 25, Part 2: The Elephant Man, Continued
“Wrapped in Podcast” is back with Episode 25, Part Two, in which J.R. Parker, T. Kyle King, and Ken Walczak continue their explication of David Lynch’s “The Elephant Man”. Be forewarned, though, that this installment features neither Ice-T’s “Colors” nor Jeff Fallis’s moderating professorial influence.
In spite of those notable absences, J.R. questions John Merrick’s choice of theatrical productions, confuses corrupt Congressmen Dan Rostenkowski and James Traficant with one another, and welcomes listeners back to America’s favorite legal podcast, while Kyle criticizes a series of scenes that are a little too on the nose, spots both Plato’s shadows on the cave wall and Audrey Horne’s clandestine surveillance of her father’s secret meetings, and sparks a doctoral dissertation on flames versus electricity in Lynch’s oeuvre. For his part, Ken disagrees with Roger Ebert, takes a swing on the gym set from “Twin Peaks: The Return”, and declares that it’s his party and he’ll cry if he wants to.
Yes, it’s true that this tight 36-minute summation of “The Elephant Man” contains lawyerly allusions to bailments, interpleader, replevin, strict liability, trover, and usufructuary rights. However, like the mentions of “Batman Begins” and “Star Trek”, they appear only in passing. “Wrapped in Podcast” remains primarily a forum for discussing David Lynch, so this detailed examination of “The Elephant Man” is worth your while, if only for the revelation that Lynch makes a cameo in the film.
Ken’s Beverage Corner is about property law, though, so there’s that.
Apparently I can't write two reviews so I'm having to erase my old review to write this but had to do it...
So would you guys be interested in doing a Leftovers podcast, Lindelof is on record saying Lynch/Twin Peaks is his biggest inspiration for The Leftovers, there are too many similarities to go into here but dream imaginary playing a huge part in the most important and unimportant ways at the same time is amazing
Anyways hope you guys will consider this...love seeing a new WIP cast pop up on my feed...love you guys...
But wait, there’s more!!
This was an amazingly entertaining and thorough walk through of season three. I was glad that they stretched out the last episode, and I’m double glad every time I see another episode peaking into another corner of Lynch’s ouvre (and my nightmares). The chemistry and repartee is always delightful. Great job!
These guys are heroes
I love this crew and their INCREDIBLY in depth analysis of Twin Peaks. I would listen to them talk about anything. Great freaking show.
