Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
David Lynch’s dark, profoundly unsettling prequel to his cult TV series.
Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan, Chris Issak, David Bowie, Harry Dean Stanton
France-USA 1992. 134min
Originally met with universal derision, almost 30 years on Fire Walk with Me has had an exceptional reversal of fortune: the feature-length follow-up to the hit TV series is now heralded as a masterpiece in horror. It features a stunning performance from Sheryl Lee, a short but impactful appearance from Bowie as Agent Jeffries and, of course, Angelo Badalamenti’s score, which undulates with disquiet. Fire Walk with Me is a terrifying fever-dream that lives long in the memory.
