Critic reviews for Arbitrary Law
Imagine my surprise when I watch "Arbitrary Law" and it was...great. Really, really great. This has been by far the best 40 and some change minutes I've spent in the town of Twin Peaks.
Brace yourself for a powerful and confounding hour of television, and the climax of the Laura Palmer storyline.
Director Tim Hunter, who previously directed the funeral episode of the series, brings his A-game to this one, as the episode is shot beautifully throughout.
On the whole though, "Arbitrary Law" is better than most of what comes next in Season 2, if only because it still highlights the grace and charisma of Ray Wise.
