    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★★

    Cooper wobbles through the prism of space and time between the white lodge and the black, Dougie and 'Mr C', angels and Bob, love and fear and the other dichotomies of Twin Peaks.

    Merleau-Ponty // Twin Peaks

    "Cinema has yet to provide us with many films that are works of art from start to finish: its infatuation with stars, the sensationalism of the zoom, the twists and turns of plot and the intrusion of pretty pictures and witty dialogue, are…
