Laura Palmer: The girl of great mystery, turns out to be one big misery. Sweet and pure, but deeply broken. You fall in love with Laura just like the town and why her death was a painful tragedy. David Lynch can hit my emotions like no other. This guy is a master.

From the dashing James to the no-nonsensical Dale Cooper to the terrifying Leo, each character is unique and charming (with the exception of Donna and Audrey, who I get confused all the time). Laura Palmer is a girl that's been murdered in the Twin Peaks area. Her death will change everyone around her, and the truth is more shocking than anyone could have ever suspected. A nice series. Unfortunately the end of it was anti-climatic, but apparently they didn't know when it was going to be canceled, so can't blame David Lynch.

Awesome series. I really enjoyed David Lynch's other movie, Mullholland Drive and Blue Velvet, which were really mysteriously weird. I love how he captures to viewers attention, making them to feel curiousity, humour, drama and realism all at the same time.

A prequel to the events of the once popular television show 'Twin Peaks'. Having seen the show prior (and being a fan), I'd recommend watching this after. Besides easing you into the material better, it would also be beneficiary due to the fact the film gives away all of the secrets of the show's driving murder mystery. This film feels at one with the universe of the show, but the surreal aspects become even more strange. This is a darker endeavor that almost becomes horror at times. More emphasis on the sex, drugs, and violence make use of the new R-rated format. There's harsh depiction of self deprivation with the Laura Palmer character. The downward spiral of a tortured soul. The whole film is essentially an ode to the fallen one. In that aspect it does succeed. However, the …

"First thing your going to learn is to have a good attitude, that's the key." Unfortunately, this critic never followed the TV series. Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) tries to investigate how Agent Chester Desmond (Chris Isaak) disappeared, who was trying to solve the murder of Teresa Banks. Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) and Donna Hayward (Moira Kelly) are good friends. Some characters were too weird while the acting oftentimes overly exaggerated. Pace was too slow for this reviewers taste. Score and screenplay were fantastic. One of the nice lines: Leland - "What's the world coming to?" Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me's intent was good, execution however was questionable to those who are not fans of the show. Disappointing comparing to the Director's other films.

A pretty high school girl who dabbles with drugs and prostitution is haunted by bizarre dreams and stalked by a mysterious figure known only as "Bob". David Lynch's prequel to his hugely influential TV series Twin Peaks bears all his usual hallmarks. It's the story of the unseen horrors of middle America featuring unsettling and deliberately obtuse imagery which is scored brilliantly with inventive sound design and populated by offbeat characters. The opening in particular as the FBI investigate a similar case a year earlier is classic Lynch and to be honest I wish he'd stayed with them a bit longer. Chris Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland and Harry Dean Stanton all give very memorable performances and Sheryl Lee ably tackles a very complex character. The story set in Twin Peaks features the …
