With its third season –or The Return-, this was the year ofTwin Peaks. Its return couldn’t have been more powerful, both for its repercussions and its quality. The Lynch/Frost duo managed to expand the limits of formats (TV series / sequenced featurefilm / video art in installments / flow of consciousness with structure?) while broadening the universe they had built to unsuspected extremes. However, if there was something these eighteen new episodes highlighted, it was the great importance of this film, which they turned into more of a creed than a canon. Here we are in practically another Twin Peaks that details the events prior to the initial series, and in which the humorous tone is left aside in order to prompt what could be one of the most terrifying films of all time. It works much better if you’ve seen the first two seasons. And then you have to let yourself be carried along. It’s quite an event.
