In Focus: The Broom Is Not What It Seems (Twin Peaks: The Return)
by The Long Take
In part 7 of Twin Peaks: The Return (2017), a man sweeping the floor of the Roadhouse plays out in a single two and a half-minute long take. The Long Take unpacks the scene, to understand why Lynch finds value in lingering on this moment for what feels like eternity.
