With the mainstream success of David Lynch's TWIN PEAKS on television it would have seemed that a feature-length film based on the series should have been a slam-dunk success. Instead, FIRE WALK WITH ME was despised when it came out. Met with boos at its Cannes premiere and a commercial flop at the box office. Derided as a some sort of coked up paranoid fever dream by critics. But, now two decades later, the critical tune has changed. FIRE WALK WITH ME, a prequel to the series, is now regarded as one of Lynch's best films -- a masterpiece alongside BLUE VELVET and MULHOLLAND DRIVE. That's not to say it isn't a coked up fever dream; it's just a really, really good one that gets to the heart of the Twin Peaks story and vibe, complementing the show (which had actually long since fizzled out by the film's release) and stands up on its own even if you have no interest in watching the full series (but why would you be lame like that?).  BE WARNED THOUGH: If you do plan on watching the series, see it first; this film contains one helluva of a spoiler.
