Twin Peaks returns. As Laura Palmer predicted- 25 years later. Reviews of this Showtime reboot focus on plot. Not. This is David Lynch. It’s an experiential acid trip. Don’t look for coherent characters or storylines here. Some of the original cast is marginally recognizable decades hence. Madchen Amick still beautiful. Kyle looks like Agent Cooper, if a darker evil twin. Grace Zabriskie and Ray Wise remain familiar and dysfunctional. Hope we get more Fargo diner scenes with cherry pie and fewer arms on trees in the ‘dark lodge’ if you know what I mean.
For my money. The weekend winner was HBO‘s The Wizard of Lies. DeNiro as Bernie Madoff is perfection. Chilling and plausibly written.
