    season 1

    despite the death of Laura Palmer, she is omnipresent-a sacrifice, a beloved one, a scapegoat for the town's desires and dread, and perhaps its redemption. the darkness closes in around this seemingly idyllic tale, further detaching itself from the rails of normality as no-one will remain untouched by evil.

    defying accustomed genre classification, the first season is an intricate, literary narrative that extracts ideas from varying sources and is always deviating in paths at once unforeseen and utterly…

    vignettes exhibited throughout the 80-minute runtime are several amalgamations of passages from Alina’s (Vanessa Kirby) stories and memories that suddenly became lost. they reveal little about the character, about her creating inevitable relationships, about isolated survival or about anything at all. There's no driving force for the story to be interesting and it ultimately fails to express these moments as significant chapters that shaped her life once upon a time.

    “I’m giving you a choice. Either put on these glasses or start eating that trash can.”

    Lots of great one-liners and features an on-screen brawl that lasts longer than the average overlong SNL skit. An iconic story of a man who’s unable to convince anybody to try on a pair of sunglasses.

    Set in an austere, nondescript, post-war era, in a frontier town in the deep heart of Texas, where the rise of cinema and TV become much immense and more colorful on the screen with CinemaScope and VistaVision, there appears to be merely three outlets for the film’s youth to have a diversion from the greyness of actuality: a pool hall, a cafe, and a small cinema, which are all run by Sam The Lion, who besides this, seems to influence…
