    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★½

    Cinema is not dead, nor is it on the decline. We are in the birth of the digital age. The cinematic boundaries have not been pushed to the farthest they can go and for all we know we could have only scratched the surface of what cinema is capable of.

    “‘Fuck you.’ Never understood that insult, because fucking someone is actually really pleasant. If we're trying to be mean, we should say ‘unfuck you!’”

    Many people don’t know the name Lenny Bruce, which is sad because without him we would never have had comedic legends such as George Carlin, Richard Pryor, and Dave Chappelle. The strides Lenny Bruce did were historic, not just in paving the way for comedians like who I mentioned to perform their acts, but also showing…
