Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

  • Dir: David Lynch

  • France/USA, 1992, English, 135mins, DCP

  • Cast: Sheryl Lee, Chris Isaak, David Bowie, Moira Kelly

Axeing the TV set, David Lynch subverts his foundational myth of his famous TV series Twin Peaks , reinventing the dead girl wrapped in plastic into a lively, tragic heroine who fights against an evil till her brutal murder. Innocent yet delirious, Laura leads a double life that pulls her into trauma as she unveils the identity of the assailant who has been abusing her for years. Serving as a redemption more than a prequel or resolution, this big screen version gave Lynch full licence to realise his nightmarish renditions of reality in otherworldly visual aesthetics, terrifying and exhilarating in equal measure. A macabre vision that once drowned out by boos at Cannes has later proved itself to be an inspiration to many, including Kon Satoshi.
