Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

“When this kind of fire starts, it is very hard to put out.”

The Good:
Sheryl Lee delivers one of the best performances of all time. It’s such a raw and emotionally charged performance. Her facial expressions convey so much without her having to say a word. Wise is also absolutely fantastic, his inner struggle in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me gives this deeper depth to an already interesting character.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me doesn’t feel like fan service in any way, it’s purely a wonderful extension of the Laura Palmer story. It delivers a deeper understanding of the this broken person crying out & the deterioration of her mind and psyche. It also explains a little more of The Black Lodge & its inhabitants.

While Twin Peaks has good direction Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me gives Lynch much more room for his excellent direction, the close-ups are a great representation of the how intimate the story is. 

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me transitions from a quirky story with some Lynch humor thrown in to an absolutely heart-shattering character study seamlessly.

The Bad:
The only issue I have is a slightly sloppy scene including Man From Another Place, Bob & Jeffries. I’ll elaborate on a rewatch. This scene barely affects the films’ quality 

Fun Fact:
Much of the cast credited as starring in the film actually only make brief appearances on screen. Peggy Lipton and Heather Graham each appear for less than 30 seconds in the 134 minute film.

Would Recommend!
