Imagine a hollow fantasy world that sucks people in and quickly spits them out, leaving them a shell of their former selves. The set up is genius. It’s purposefully built on cliches only to have the characters and threads we think are going to converge never actually meet. We’ve become accustomed to having some sort of narrative payoff to help us make sense of it all but not here. The closest we get is a glance between two characters. They have never met and they don’t know each other but they lock eyes across a room. This has to be when it all comes together right? We think that all our questions will finally start to be answered and then Lynch pulls the rug out from under us. It’s all surface level, it’s meaningless fluff to distract us from the real danger right around the corner.
