Critic reviews for Part 7
Laura Dern returned to give a heartbreakingly brittle performance as Diane, whom it seems is another victim of Evil Cooper's (Kyle MacLachlan) sadistic ways.
David Lynch followed up one of the most coherent, linear, and narratively clear episodes of the reboot with one of the most surreal hours of television ever produced.
There's a certain delight in being deceived by an artist you love, as long as truth comes out of the con.
Maybe Lynch is trolling people somewhat. But so what? He's been doing it for ages- why stop now?
Lynch is firing on all cylinders...and this installment offers another fine example of how the director can execute his vision by not giving the audience what they think they want, and instead handing them what it is they never knew they wanted.
