Twin Peaks goes 1080p, plus films from A Hard Day’s Night to NeedForSpeed

It’s hard to over­state just how mind-blow­ing Twin Peaks was when it turned up on telly in 1990. Os­ten­si­bly a mur­der mys­tery, it’s set in a back­woods town full of stock Hol­ly­wood char­ac­ters – brood­ing mo­tor­bike boys, cheery diner wait­resses with adul­ter­ous se­crets, saintly po­lice­men – and, er, rather less stan­dard ones – a lady who talks to a log, a one-eyed woman with an un­healthy drape ob­ses­sion, a mur­der­ous de­mon called Bob. It soon de­vel­ops into some­thing al­to­gether big­ger and weirder, ping­ing be­tween goofy med­i­ta­tions on the value of friend­ship and cherry pie, and truly night­mar­ish scenes of sex­ual vi­o­lence and de­monic pos­ses­sion. The first se­ries is per­fect, the sec­ond much less so, but its best mo­ments are so jaw-drop­pingly in­tense, you’re kind of be­holden to watch it. The im­age qual­ity and ex­tras on this edi­tion are ex­em­plary. $TBC BD, out Au­gust
