Flavorpill’s 2011 Holiday Cultural Wish List

‘Tis the season for gift guides a-plenty — and don’t worry, we’ll have no shortage of those. But let’s get real: we aren’t just thinking of others this holiday season. We’ve got needs and desires, too, dammit! With that in mind, we’ve compiled a cultural wish list of films and books we’d like to see, musical reinventions and comebacks we’ve been longing for, and TV shows we hope will make it next season (or hang it up at the end of this one). Like any such list, what we’ve come up with is massively subjective — so let us know what you’d add in the comments.

A new David Lynch movie

We liked Crazy Clown Time a whole lot more than we expected. And we think it’s cool that David Lynch has turned his attention to Transcendental Meditation, directing Duran Duran concert videos, redesigning his website, and creating his very own, Mulholland Drive-inspired nightclub in Paris. But come on, now. Lynch is first and foremost a great filmmaker, and as far as we can tell, he hasn’t even discussed a follow-up to 2006’s Inland Empire.
