Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

After a bombardment of requests from devoted fans of the popular TV series, in 1992 David Lynch brought this twisted story on the last week of the life of Laura Palmer to the big screen. A prequel to the small screen saga.

"Schoolgirl Laura Palmer is the model citizen. Blonde, pretty, clever and sweet, Laura is the Prom Queen and the girlfriend of the quarterback - the most popular girl in school. But as we become aware of the private doings of Laura's friends and relatives in Twin Peaks, it is evident that the residents of this town are on a bad trip... and Laura is the baddest trip of all. In one week, Laura will be found dead. Wrapped in plastic. Find out what happened in her last seven days in Twin Peaks. Population 51,201." (Official Synopsis)

Suspense is clearly lacking in this story with a preordained outcome. Another significant drawback is that long before the climax Laura has become a tiresome teen.

The film appears to be an undifferentiated mess of story lines and hallucinations. There's no reason to care which is which. Even Mr. Lynch's eccentric touches become boring.

If inspiration is lacking, talent is not. Count Lynch down but never out.

The quintessential Lynch. Prepare to be confused / intrigued / frustrated / disturbed / hooked.
