DATE REVIEWED: 11/28/2016

TITLE: Twin Peaks

FORMAT: Laserdisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 54 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 27.1 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 5664 miles

SYNOPSIS: An FBI investigator searches for a serial killer in a small northwestern town.

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: Surreal life in rural America.  In a small town, secrets are never kept long and everyone has an agenda.

PROS AND CONS:  It has been a while since I saw this film.  This is the pilot film on which the television show was based, so it has a different ending and slant than the TV version.

This is an excellent film.  We forget how good it is with all the Hollywood glitz and glamour that has come out since, but this is good simple film-making with excellent; cast, direction, story, production design and soundtrack.

The most pleasant aspect of this film was the soundtrack.  Since I now view these laser discs on an upgraded sound system with surround sound, the soundtrack and foley work in the film really comes through (the low rumble of the fog horn in the open scene was something that I had never heard before and it really set the scene.).

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
