All the Great Scenes: The Thread Will Be Torn, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

David Lynch is the master of intensity, and this scene proves it.

There was a stillness.

The sound design in this scene totally makes it. And Ray Wise’s performance as Leland Palmer is brilliant. I think he’s one of the great underrated actors.

Also, Lynch’s seeming obsession with the elderly walking slowly never gets old.
