This compelling video from Bruno Enrique Batista Teixeira might make you a believer! The video expertly juxtaposes outtakes from the new series with voiceover passages from Frost's The Secret History of Twin Peaks to create a tantalizing if all too brief portrait of the horrors that await inside the glass box. As ever, the Twin Peaks universe richly rewards those with the vision and the gumption to read across the narrative's filmic and textual boundaries toward a fusion of its visual and intellectual interpretive horizons. In any case, this video is a harbinger of great things to come for those of us who enjoy the hermeneutic balancing act of moving back and forth between film and text, discovering, for instance, the hidden riches in Fire Walk With Me revealed by The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, or relishing the much more intimate relationship with the inimitable Special Agent Dale Cooper that emerges from having digested "Diane...": The Twin Peaks Tapes of Dale Cooper. To be sure, Twin Peaks is wonderful and strange all by its damn self, but if you're ready for the deep end of this fathomless pool, put on your reading glasses. And if you're ready for a ludicrously absurd mixed metaphor, re-read that last sentence.
