I will note that the "timelessness" in Twin Peaks reminds me of the
set and background characters from _Batman_. (No flames, please.)
Anton "Dune" Furst's work on _Batman_ was incredible -- the cars and
clothing styles were very 1940's. However, everything else in the
film pointed to modernism, leaving you with a world where fashion never
made it past the early 50's.
Food for thought. belch.
