    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'm sitting in a car. My best friends are with me. We drive through a city. My age is uncertain, but I am free and enjoying this ride. My friends are faceless but familiar to me. I feel warm in their presence. I belong. We ride through this city full of lights and skyscrapers. We dance and party together. This goes on for what feels like days.

A ruthless, comical and mythical masterpiece. Totally unimpeachable.
