Twin Peaks: The Return

Twin Peaks: The Return ★★★★★

a monumental career-capping triumph

at some point early on I felt a definite shift and reality no longer seemed the same

David Lynch created a rupture in which two realities existed simultaneously: one inhabitated by those watching and sharing and obsessing over The Return, and another for those who did not

what Lynch and Mark Frost have achieved here ought to become the new blueprint on how to bring back long dormant properties -- not just the avoidance of nostalgia, but integrating the unsparing passage of time

Kyle MacLachlan is such a treasure and his performances throughout can't be praised enough, truly the most unforgettable in recent memory

whatever you want to qualify this "limited series" or "18-hour movie" as, Twin Peaks was the best thing I saw in 2017 by a considerable margin
