Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me ★★★★½

Dark, twisted, surreal, uncomfortable, dramatic — everything that made Twin Peaks one of my favorite shows. Other than the first twenty minutes, which are just alright, this is an emotional roller coaster that takes these characters to the darkest places they've ever been. I feel that most of my appreciation for this film comes from my love of the show. It isn't for everyone, and definitely don't watch this before seeing the show. It will ruin so many plot points of the show, and there are so many allusions to the show itself that will leave newcomers confused. For me, those aren't problems — this is a great movie that really frightened me.
