    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★½

    I guess I should talk about my brief history with the Twin Peaks TV show, which much like all of Lynch's work, left me confused and frustrated on a first watch, but compelled too. I did genuinely like the first season and the first bit of season 2 before losing all interest (I was advised to skip to the end of season 2, which I did).

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★½

    Nocturnal Animals might just feature the weirdest opening titles of all-time. From the opening shot I had no idea what I was in for. In fact, I had no idea what I was in for at all, I've never ever seen a trailer for this film, I went in completely blind, and I loved it.

    It's a beautiful looking film, from lots of scenic New Mexico cinematography and a bit of night-time city scenes. The performances were all amazing (Gyllenhaal…
