Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me ★★★★½

Simply crushing in every way, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me smashes formula (as evident from the opening shot) and unearths true horror within the town of Twin Peaks. What was once only suggested within the brilliant TV show is showcased with frightening honesty and emotional devastation in this cinematic oddity. It's a little too uneven to fully connect, but that's a minor quibble compared to the terrifying feeling that will stay with you. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is arguably one of the scariest films ever made, and It's as uncompromising and magnificent as anything David Lynch has ever done. Sheryl Lee brings a knockout performance that is one of the finest of the 1990s, and combined with Lynch's intoxicating direction, the film culminates in what can be basically described as pure nightmare fuel. Sweet dreams.
