Twin Peaks (International Pilot)

David Lynch Estados Unidos, 1990

Jake Cole's rating of the film Twin Peaks

This feature-length pilot is a marvelous self-contained work even if one goes by the American broadcast length over the 113-minute international standalone. Lynch destroys a Rockwellian small town before we even see it: a girl's wrapped corpse introduces us to Twin Peaks, and soon Lynch has impossibly killed innocence that never existed in the first place. The grief resonates beyond the confines of television.
