Excellent conclusion to the series
on 15 August 2006
Firstly a warning: If you have yet to see both seasons of the Twin Peaks Series THINK VERY CAREFULLY before buying this. Not only does it give away Laura Palmer's killer (a twist that'll ruin everything up to mid-Season 2), but will make very VERY little sense (even for an avid Lynch fan).
For those, however, how have traversed the awesome TV series this film is a must. Even though it is set up 7 days prior to the TV series it reveals mysteries and depths behind the characters of the show and answers some of the questions that you may have had (although as always with a Lynch film, it raises equally as many questions). Much more dark in atmosphere than the episodes, the film goes much into the depth of Laura's psyche and the horrors she has to face (The ending along with the haunting sound of "Requiem in C Minor" will almost have you in tears). Although some may find the lack of humour (deeply prevalant in the TV shows) somewhat un-nerving, it does add a tremendous weight to the characters and story so much so it'll make you want to re-watch the episodes again to see them in a new frame of reference.
To conclude, a fantastic film that completes the whole Twin Peaks series but only if you've watched the regular shows first.
