In the town of Twin Peaks, everyone has their secrets—but especially Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). In this prequel to his groundbreaking 1990s television series, David Lynch resurrects the teenager found wrapped in plastic at the beginning of the show, following her through the last week of her life and teasing out the enigmas that surround her murder. Homecoming queen by day and drug-addicted thrill seeker by night, Laura leads a double life that pulls her deeper and deeper into horror as she pieces together the identity of the assailant who has been terrorizing her for years. Nightmarish in its vision of an innocent torn apart by unfathomable forces, TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME is nevertheless one of Lynch’s most humane films, aching with compassion for its tortured heroine—a character as enthralling in life as she was in death. – Janus Films

“David Lynch’s prequel film, maligned upon its initial release, can now be seen as a hinge in his filmography – and a hint of what’s to come.” – Jason Bailey, Flavorwire

“In its own singular, deeply strange way, Fire Walk With Me is David Lynch’s masterpiece.” – Calum Marsh, The Village Voice
