The last days of Laura Palmer.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was a prequel/reboot of the short lived television series that was created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. The film chronicles the last seven days of the life of Laura Palmer. She was a tragic figure who wished her life could have been different. But family secrets and a wild lifestyle brought and end to all of that.

The film begins with a similar case a year before the events of Twin Peaks. A murder in a small town that's the opposite number of the small quiet burg of Twin Peaks. It's a town that is as black as the soul of it's residents. There's an evil there that's as old as time itself. Two federal agents (Chris Issak and Kiefer Sutherland) come in and investigate the murder. What they find boggles their minds leaving a lot more questions than answers.  Agent Chest Desmond (Chris Isaak) decides to look around for more clues and disappears. A year later  the movie goes back to Twin Peaks and that's where we follow the final days of Laura Palmer.

An interesting premise that was not what people were expecting. Many people and fans were counting on a wrap up to the series. But in order to see the present we must look back at the past. I enjoyed this movie. We finally get to see the real Laura Palmer, not the sweet innocent girl that people reminisced about in the series. She was just another victim of B.O.B. We find out how B.O.B. came to become such the evil presence it was in the the series. Leland Palmer was a victim of B.O.B. as much as Laura. He was possessed by this terrible entity who has caused so much pain and anguish. Instead of becoming another tool of B.O.B., Laura sacrificed herself.

Sherilyn Lee defined the character of Laura Palmer. Kyle Mac Lachlan returns as Agent Dale Cooper. Moira Kelly replaces Lara Flynn Boyle (due to some content issues) Ray Wise co-stars as Leland Palmer and David Lynch makes a cameo appearance as the lead Federal Agent. Miguel Ferrer, Peggy Lipton, Madchen Amick and David Bowie make brief cameos as well.

This is a must viewing for fans of the series.

Who Killed Laura Palmer?
   During my freshman year in high school, I would often skip drama rehearsals after school or speech & debate just to watch David Lynch's Twin Peaks on TV. Oh, come on. Give Peaks a chance, would you? Ok, I know Peaks was for geeks but I love anything that David Lynch makes & this show was no exception to that rule. I was determined to watch every single episode starting with the pilot show. Although I don't feel like we ever truly understood Laura in the television …

It anwsers the questions left by the series but this fire walk is less than moving....
It's unique in it's storytelling and plot, it's original in it's line of mind bending twist and psychological tricks but falters in it's acting, script which causes an extremely original an engrossing story to stall out halfway through the film. But I will say this in favor of the film David Lynch's "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" is every bit as twisted, demented and mind boggling as you would expect from the creator of one of the most original and twisted series of all time.   …
