yooooo. i’m SO speechless???? this really is david lynch’s 18-hour magnum opus. it feels like a miracle that this was made. i read that it was all shot from one massive shooting script and cahiers du cinéma named it the best film of the decade—as they absolutely should! even though i’m a few years late, this was such a revelation for what film and television are capable of and ultimately resists any differentiation between the two mediums. this deserves even more than 5 stars.
and most importantly, kyle maclachlan is still just as fresh 25 years later
