Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me ★★½

I’m sorry everyone. I don’t get it. 

I liked (not loved) the show, but I think much of that is because the music, pace, and (most) of the characters just make it a cozy show to hang out in. Obviously that doesn’t translate here, but I think I was also oversold on this being a horror movie, sure it’s got fucked up scary stuff in it but it’s so detached from all of that through weird shit that none of it was really affecting to me. Maybe I’m broken cause so many people seem to find this a visceral experience but it just kept me at arm’s length the entire time. 

Sheryl Lee is fantastic and the bar/club/red and blue sequence is lovely, but besides that, yeah, I don’t get it.
