    β€œI’ll save them all... the whole world.”

    A megalomaniacal spiral into madness, and an unforgiving angle into the formation of a genocide: delusions become policies, wildest dreams become living nightmares, men become monsters.

    Inland Empire

    Unrateable, and medium shattering.Β 

    Like huffing the noxious fumes of burning Mullholland Drive celluloids, dissociating from your body and watching yourself have a grand mal seizure on the floor of an eastern European mansion, filmed on an unregistered hypercam 2.

    That’s Nowhere.

    β€œEverything but everything”

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is a prime example of Lynch firing on all cylinders: Horrifying, off-kilter, deranged, unbalanced, inexplicable, devastating and hilarious at times. If it’s a horror film, then the monster is depression, stemming from fractured relationships, impossibly high expectations, and the banality of American life that Twin Peaks so relentlessly satires throughout the show’s runtime. Its also a tragic character study that shatters our assumptions– as well as the town’s rosy memories– of…
