TWIN PEAKS: FIREWALK WITH ME

David Lynch's Twin Peaks is back on television. Celebrate with a trip back to the beginning with the 25th anniversary of the cinematic prequel to the cult classic TV show.

"In its own singular, deeply strange way, Fire Walk With Me is David Lynch's masterpiece." -Village Voice

"At its best, it's a dream within a dream, a nightmare in endlessly reflecting pop mirrors, a screen full of TV-movie sex and horror kitsch blowing up right in our faces." -Los Angeles Times

The prequel to Lynch's cult television series "Twin Peaks" follows the hellish final days in the life of Laura Palmer, a lurid nightmare descent into the damaged psyche of a little girl lost.

David Lynchs harrowing attempt to close the book on both his signature series and arguably his most memorable and tragic character. A prequel to the television phenomenon surrounding the mysterious death of a 17-year-old homecoming queen, TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME plunges into the show's dark heart and defining trauma, chronicling the final week in the brief life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee)—a film predestined to end with the death of its protagonist. For Lynch, the entire Twin Peaks project was a laboratory where he worked out some ideas that would define his later films.

In FIRE WALK WITH ME, the filmmaker experimented with narrative strictures and structures, and moved toward more direct expressions of emotion, as if the time he spent in the Twin Peaks cosmos allowed him to reduce the film counterpart to its essentials: pain and sorrow, hypnotically and heartbreakingly rendered.
