One of the most enigmatic scenes in all of Twin Peaks is the brief but memorable appearance of the “long lost” Phillip Jeffries (played by the late great David Bowie, R.I.P.). The scene sparked so many questions with the very little it showed us, and almost none of it is explained or even referenced again in the film. It’s a bizarre aside in the larger story, but there is undoubtedly great importance to it. It features many integral characters and motifs, yet it is so hard to fit in with the rest of the movie. What is Jeffries doing in Buenos Aires? Why has he been missing? Who is Judy?  What is the relevance to the rest of the plot?

It’s been a while since I’ve done any random rambling that wasn’t part of a review and with Star Wars fever overrunning the world on the lead up to The Force Awakens, it seems as good a time as any to share some thoughts on the franchise thus far. This particular post is going to look at several subtle adjustments that I think would have worked well for Episodes I – III.
