LAB SUGGESTIONS: TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME
Our Suggestions Board gives you the chance to tell us all about the films you’d love to see on our screens. Every month we try to pick from these suggestions and bring them back to our cinema. This September you’ll get a chance to revisit both David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and travel to 60’s France with Francois Truffaut’s Jules Et Jim.
In the town of Twin Peaks, everybody has their secrets—but no one more than Laura Palmer. 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.
