The sexual politics of Twin Peaks is complex, even contradictory, in large part because of David Lynch’s highly idiosyncratic style of writing and directing. Lacking the desire to be consistent, let alone expository, Lynch’s stories tend to operate on a level of subconscious association, his characters, settings, and scenes linked to highly charged symbols open to various interpretation. Nowhere has this dynamic caused more public contention than the role of women in his oeuvre. Adding insight and personal experience to the ongoing conversation, writer and conservationist Francis Chiem takes a closer look at female space in Twin Peaks in her essay “Evil that Lurks in those Woods”, up now at Two Serious Ladies.
