Thanks for sharing, exciting times in Twin Peaks :-)
"There's something very off-putting, animalistic, possibly sexual about the way the Horne brothers are appreciating and devouring those sandwiches."
Hey that's exactly what I thought
! I wonder if Lynch views the material world as flawed/evil or maybe simply ambivalent to human suffering.
The Horne brothers seem to treat women the way they treat their sandwiches, their next stop is One-Eyed-Jack's.
Interesting observation that the images deers accompany vulnerable women, but that the deer are always antlered. Femininity = nature and nature on the run.
I wonder if their's a connection with the antlered Hearne the Hunter, spirit protector of wild woods? The forest features heavily in TP, and although presented as strong is clearly under assault, remember the ruthless machines in the titles. The whole town and especially the Horne's Hotel is built from dead woods.
