Worthwhile, but not necessary, prequel to the fantastic tv series Twin Peaks. I wouldn't watch it til after the show even though it's a prequel. Not nearly as cool as the series, but it kept my attention. It was rated R, which led to an edgier feel. Topless Sheryl Lee and Moira Kelly didn't hurt either. Could have been much better had more of the tv cast seen fit to attend.

I've got mixed feelings on this follow-up prequel... I was disappointed that much of the original cast were not present to resume their roles. I've read that Sherilyn Fenn declined, and Lara Flynn Boyle was preoccupied with other projects (her replacement was noticeably awkward and Boyle's presence was missed). Even Kyle MacLachlan almost passed on the invitation. And that's only naming a few. But on the flip side, on a positive note, Sheryl Lee was tremendous. She really gave the tormented Laura Palmer her all, demonstrating her acting chops that she wasn't given the platform to in the series as Laura's cousin Maddy. The film felt a little exploitative; almost like a soft-porn. David Lynch is one unique individual, and I've typically really enjoyed his portfolio of off-center filmmaking. This was very good, but it left me feeling like too much was (and too many were) missing.

Before Precious, before Magnolia, there was Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me -- one of the only films that has explored and examined the devastating psychological [and (other) undeniably varied] ramifications of incest/sexual abuse in such an artistic and creative way.

This movie is a prequel to the wildly successful TV series Twin Peaks. It deals with weeks leading up to Laura Palmers death. The homecoming queen persona she shows the town, and the drug addicted prostitute on a downward spiral outside of home and school. Since anyone who has watched the show already knows who did kill Laura, it was interesting to see how it came about and filled in some of the missing pieces. Not a movie for everyone, but I thought Sheryl Lee's performance as Laura Palmer was excellent, maybe even award worthy.
