American cult series, where Angelo BADALMENTI's haunting music merges with David LYNCH's dreamlike universe. An offbeat Federal agent (Kyle MACLACHLAN) meets an intriguing Lolita (Sherilyn FENN). =-=- Série américaine culte, où l'envoûtante musique d'Angelo BADALMENTI se fond à l'univers inquiétant & onirique de David LYNCH. Rencontre entre 1 agent fédéral décalé (Kyle MACLACHLAN) & 1 perverse Lolita (Sherilyn FENN).
Redefined what a television soap opera could be. Lynch lured people in with the promise of a murder mystery and then confounded them with his surreal, stylish, disturbing, hilariously funny artistry. No one has really touched what he achieved with this show. Yet, hacks such as J.J. Abrams continue to try, they needn't bother. When Lynch is cooking and making art no one can touch him.
TWIN PEAKS is one of my favorite TV series of all time (along with THE TWILIGHT ZONE). David Lynch and Mark Frost succeed to invent a new innovation in television format. Although it released a small format, TWIN PEAKS could create a cinematic experience when you're watching it. Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper - perhaps is one the best TV characters I've ever seen. I'm gonna visit this series again someday..
To me it always felt like it just lived from one episode to another without any real theme or idea, except that the show will last until the murder is solved - virtually all dialogue sounded meaningless to me, every character looked absurd and I just could not watch it.
Twin Peaks is like this odd friend that you are genuinely happy to see again, although you know time with him won't be easy, and that he is going to lead you to the most remote zones of your psyche.
Lynch's work always transcend time and style, proof being the Twin Peaks new season.
I always get lost in a parallel universe after I have finished reading a novel, and with Twin Peaks, the confusion is even stronger...
For me the show that changed American television from being juvenile and stupid and the first show that turned me into an adult, sophisticated man. It had one of the best ensembles every put together on the small screen and a murder mystery that becomes darker, more absorbing and dreamlike than anyone could dare. The music haunts me still as does it's ending. David Lynch channeled my inner dreams with this show.
