Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me ★★★★

I can see why many Twin Peaks fans didn't like this film. It's more in line with some of the harsher Lynch films than the titular tv show. We all love the ensemble in the small town and how the seediness bubbled under the surface. There was nothing wrong with that and that approach is more accessible. Fire Walk with Me, however, was not interested in that story. Its aim was to explore the relationship between Laura, Leland and (wow) Bob (wow). That's not going to be pretty or subtle. I feel like the hate must come from disappointed fans who wanted a completely different film than they got.
