4 Shots From 4 Films: Special Twin Peaks Edition


Look, I’m just going to admit the truth.

I am obsessed.

Right now, I am totally obsessed with Twin Peaks.  Even as I spent the last few days watching movies off the DVR and writing the reviews that I posted on this site today, I still found my thoughts continually returning to Twin Peaks.

So, in honor of that obsession, here’s a special edition of 4 Shots From 4 Films.

It is happening again.
