David Lynch

The film opens with a not-so-subtle shot of a television set, freeing Twin Peaks and David Lynch of their shackles of television restraints and censorships, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it makes this stand out even more as a haunting and bleak piece of filmmaking.

You're forced to just sit and watch the film, feeling just as helpless as Laura and hope beyond hope that someone will be able to help her and just when you feel there's a chance of it, you remember what you know from the show and you know full well what is about to happen, and it just feels far too soon and sudden, it's truly the definition of a gut punch.

Also just a big shotout to Ray Wise for giving such an deeply layered and ambiguous performance, really wish he'd be cast in more good stuff.
