The single greatest artistic achievement of 2017... and perhaps the decade... and maybe even the century.

But then again, what even is time, when Twin Peaks has any say in the matter?

It is happening again. It is always happening again. It will never not be happening again.

Are you real? Am I real? Is this a dream? Is this a nightmare? Where is Audrey Horne? Who is the dreamer? And what happens if they ever wake up?

Everything links back to Twin Peaks in the end.

Logan, Blade Runner 2049, and The Last Jedi all followed in its thematic footsteps, but for the best 2017 interrogatory deconstruction of what we want and expect from reboots and sequels, all shall forever pale in comparison with Twin Peaks: The Return.

(Now let's see how long Letterboxd allows this review to exist for, before they delete this 18-hour "film" from its memory banks. But hey - what even is existence and memory, anyway, amiright...?)
