Overview

After the TV series ended, Twin Peaks creator David Lynch took to the silver screen for the prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. New Line has made sure that this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer looks very well rendered. All of the color schemes and black levels appear very vibrant and solid. No imperfections of any kind are spotted anytime during this film. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS, and Dolby 2.0 (in French). The DTS and Dolby 5.1 soundtracks are very full and bombastic, utilizing surround sounds through the front and rear speakers during many of the key scenes. All aspects of the dialogue, effects, and music are very clear and concise. Also included on this disc are English and French subtitles. This version of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me includes only two extra features which may disappoint die-hard fans. The first is a half hour "Making Of" documentary that includes interviews with cast members, and the second a theatrical trailer for the film presented in anamorphic widescreen. While this edition of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me could have been a bit more expansive, fans should be happy to finally have this film on DVD.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
The banal and the bizarre are exquisitely intertwined in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, David Lynch's prequel to his groundbreaking TV serial, Twin Peaks. Darker and more violent than its TV predecessor, Fire Walk with Me follows the last days of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a small-town Oregon high school student whose murder -- and its subsequent investigation -- provided the main tension in the TV series. The film reprises a number of main characters from the show, including FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), whose offbeat good-guy persona bound the series together. But Fire Walk with Me is ultimately Laura Palmer's story, and Lee gives a riveting performance as a teen torn between innocence and lust who is victimized by a mysterious sexual abuser. A plethora of eccentric characters swirl around Palmer: Their similarly fractured psyches provide fodder for the director’s characteristic exploration of unspeakable secrets lurking beneath the mundane fabric of small-town life. Lynch's outrageously strange vision, rife with dream symbols, is perfectly complemented by a haunting score from his regular musical collaborator, composer Angelo Badalamenti. The result is an intense, head-spinning psychological thriller -- darkly sexual, breathtakingly enigmatic, and quintessentially Lynchian.

Twin peaks,Fire walk with me, the prequel to the best tv show ever ,is a film you eather like or dislike. A lot of critics hated the film back in 1992 when it came out.Now 13 years later some say it is one of Lynch's best.It is one of the most unike films i have ever seen.If you have seen the series you know underneith the smalltown of Twin peaks is something very ugly hidden.This movie shows it.In full glory.A must watch for Twin peakys an Lynchfans.The haunting music by Angelo Badalamenti is to die for to.I think this film is also a sequel to the series in a weird way. Performances,specialy by Ray wise and Sheryl Lee,are outstanding.Cooper,Kyle Maclachlan,returns to,only a short apperance though. But this is Laura Palmers story, the nightmare is no longer hidden. This is not only a film, it is a feeling. Briliant.

I viewed this film last night and was blown away. The feature is definitely a Lynch classic in my mind. The film has all the Lynch elements; suspense, humor, music, intense visuals, and much much more. I've seen my fair share of Lynch films and have discussed his work widely, but for some odd reason, this film fell through the discussions. The film is a prequel to the television series, which I've yet to see. I didn't know what to expect from it, especially since I hadn't heard much about the film. There is a Blue Velvet'esque quality to it, in the sense of the feature being a mystery, but unlike some of Lynch's other films, you can actually follow the story. I was suprised at the long range of cameos, including Lynch himself playing a Deaf FBI agent. By the end of the film, I was extremely satisfied and am glad I made time to watch it, I'm definitely interested in watching the Television Series and can only hope that it would be just as good, but then again it is Television and this film is definitely a rated "R" picture. Check it out, you won't be disappointed...

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is a great film to watch if you've seen the TV show and are a fan of it. If not, you will probably be lost. The film is a prequel to the series, in which we see the week leading up to Laura Palmer's death. The acting is excellent, and Lynch once again shows us what a great director he is. Fire Walk with Me should be watched along with the rest of the Twin Peaks series. I highly recommend it.

After watching this, I was shocked and suprised at the same time. This is the worst movie ever but it did give some answers as to how she died and I'm not sure if it said why she died and what happened to the witness Ronette Pulaski when later in the show she would be in acoma. We then see Laura and her so called life during the day but night its different. The movie was disturbing and don't like it at all including gross.
