Only now does it occur to me... INVITATION TO LOVE

Only now does it occur to me.... that TWIN PEAKS' soap-within-a-soap INVITATION TO LOVE must be set in Los Angeles, 2019...because it takes place inside Rick Deckard's apartment from BLADE RUNNER!

INVITATION TO LOVE...


...and BLADE RUNNER.

Those familiar with Frank Lloyd Wright (and perhaps Hollywood in general) may recognize the unique architecture of Ennis House, which has been used as a location (and sometimes recreated on set) in everything from THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL to THE ROCKETEER to THE GLIMMER MAN to BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER to THE DAY OF THE LOCUST.  I have always personally associated the distinctive tilework with BLADE RUNNER, and somehow, despite having watched TWIN PEAKS in its entirety at least five times, had never noticed Ennis House's presence on INVITATION TO LOVE until just this week.

Also, David Lynch must have been quite taken with the architecture, because he duplicated the tiles on the doorway to the Club Silencio in MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

So does this mean Chet is a replicant? Do androids dream of electric log ladies?

Okay, I'll stop now.
