Few contemporary television shows have been subjected to the critical scrutiny that has been brought to bear on David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks since its 1990. Yet the series—and the subsequent film, Fire Walk With Me—are sufficiently rich that it’s always possible for a close analysis to offer something new. And that’s what French film and TV critic Franck Boulègue has done with Twin Peaks: Unwrapping the Plastic, a book focusing on the original series and its theatrical prequel.
Through Boulègue’s eyes, we see for the first time the world of Twin Peaks as a coherent whole, one that draws on a wide range of cultural source material, including surrealism, transcendental meditation, Jungian psychoanalysis, mythology, fairy tales, and much, much more. Free-flowing and intuitive in the manner of Lynch and Frost's classic, the book consistently chooses the least-traveled path, making surprising connections across philosophies, theologies, mythologies, narratives, and masterworks of fine art. The work of a scholar who is also a fan, this book should appeal to any hardcore Twin Peaks viewer.
