Darren’s review published on Letterboxd:
"You always hurt the ones you love."
"You mean the ones you pity."
After going on a Twin Peaks binge and completing the show, naturally I decided to finish the series off in style with the cult film adaption, epilogue and prologue: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me.
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is completely different to the television series it is based on in more ways than one; probably because David Lynch gets to go full on surreal and dark because he is not obligated by television executives. It also doesn't revolve around the Twin Peaks police department; whom I adored so much.
The film is just so extremely dark and untamed. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is the TV show "Twin Peaks" on crack cocaine. All the characters get tremendously darker from Laura and Leland Palmer to Bobby Briggs.
An aspect I did not like was the exclusion of some of my favourite characters, they were;
Agent Denise Bryson
Deputy Tommy 'Hawk' Hill
Sheriff Harry S. Truman
But at least we got Agent Cooper, the man we all came for.
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is a huge step from the TV show; it has more depth, it doesn't have confusing side stories or love triangles and it is even darker than the darkest stuff in the television show.
It is the perfect dark twisted ending to the much loved television show, explaining pretty much everything I ever wanted to know about Twin Peaks.
