I was not impressed. The original TV show for what I can remember was way better.

If you have seen the ENTIRE Twin Peaks television series, you MUST watch this film. It serves as a prequel to the series. In other words, if you have NOT seen the TV series, do NOT watch this film. Watch the ENTIRE TV series first (from the pilot episode to the final episode. Even many events from the final episode have a direct effect on the movie) and THEN watch this movie.

I’d say skip it, more than half of the shows characters don’t even show up, there’s barely any agent cooper & too much Laura & dirty Jacques.

For those who hated it, the prequel was always supposed to be darker than the show...

As hard as it may be to watch, Fire Walk With Me is a beautiful, underrated movie that is essential to Twin Peaks. This edition features " The Missing Pieces "- 90 minutes of deleted scenes from the movie- this is definitely worth watching.

Very underrated and misunderstood masterpiece. An absolute must see for any true Lynch fan.

Fire Walk With Me is a frustrating movie. It is unlikely to interest anyone who is not a fan of the original show, but it is very different from that show. It begins with a half-hour long murder investigation, with a new cast of characters and conflicts, then abandons it and them entirely. Although the remainder takes place entirely within the locale of the show, it is narrowly focused on Laura Palmer, and few of the extensive supporting cast return even for cameos (most notably, Ben Horne is entirely absent despite having played a significant role in Laura's life). At the same time, there are some unforgettable scenes, and while the film doesn't explain anything (or even resolve any of the cliffhangers from the show), what we get effectively draws us deeper into the mystery. Ultimately, though, the movie stands or falls based on Laura Palmer, and while Sheryl Lee gives a fine performance, she is given a nearly impossible task. In the show, everyone seemed to know their own version of Laura, and the attempt to reconcile all of these different aspects into a single character never really succeeds.

Twin Peaks is a cult classic for good reason. As good now as it was originally.

Definitely watch after Seasons 1 and 2, but only if you're ready for an intense ride into madness and despair. Gone are the side characters that made the TV series so quirky and soap operatic, and what's left is a study of a very troubled young woman in the days leading up to her horrific death. You'll get some answers, but the main reason to watch is that it takes a storyline that was rooted in fantasy horror in the show and grounds it in reality, showing the torment abuse victims live through and giving some catharsis to this heavy subject matter. You will feel sad and unclean, but that's kind of the point. Powerful, moving, and important.

One of the most brilliant, saddest, disturbing, and beautiful movies ever made. This is the story of Laura Palmer and how her life spun out of control before her death. Sherryl Lee should have gotten an Oscar for her performance. She captures the erratic mood changes of the abused and drug-addicted Laura perfectly.
This movie has been somewhat maligned, but I think it's an extremely powerful movie.
