Amazing Episode
27 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Lynch is an awesome filmmaker whose capable of creating some of the most memorable, dreamlike, and surreal film ever. In the early 1990s, Lynch found himself working on what is, perhaps, his most well known work today, the dramatic mystery series of "Twin Peaks".

This episode is certainly something out of the ordinary, and in a really good way. The entire episode manages to be one bizarre, memorable sequence after another and it's really great stuff. Lynch, himself, directed this episode, which is probably why it manages to be so good. There's a lot of humor throughout the episode (I always found Lynch's great ability to do comedy pretty underrated, especially in films like "Blue Velvet", which aren't often truly appreciated for their sense of humor), and also a lot of really dark stuff as well. There's one scene taking place in a woods that had some really nice lighting in it which made it feel really creepy and intense.

Of course, there's also the final dream sequence, which is true David Lynch. It's haunting, it's surreal, it's bizarre, and truly the highlight of an episode full of highlights.
