Genre, Power, and Culture in the Televisual World of "Twin Peaks": A Feminist Critique.
Lafky, Sue
Journal of Film and Video, v51 n3-4 p5-19 Fall-Win 1999-2000
Examines the economic and cultural contexts of the popular television show "Twin Peaks," reading it as reactionary postmodernism. Argues that the show's clever innovations in production, avant-garde techniques, and postmodern sensibilities obscure in-depth or ongoing discussions about its reactionary politics, regressive and misogynistic representations of women, and reinforcement of the dominant ideology.
