    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★½

    The thing about David Lynch is he might the least pretentious artist who has ever lived. Even if his art seems to be for its own sake. He genuinely seems like a person who sees the world in his own way. Still, he is able to explore emotional states that would be hard to grasp for anyone with eerie precision and depth.

    I did not fall immediately in love with Logan, but 1,5 weeks after seeing it, I can say it really was a transformative experience for me. It is always a good sign if a movie still makes you think days after watching it.

    This is the first-ever comic book movie that showcases not one but two award-worthy performances (Road to Perdition might be the only exception here). I'm not exaggerating. We've been watching Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman in…
