Dont watch as a stand alone movie
on 10 September 2017
Attempting to critique this is difficult. most of the things it deals with are locked firmly in the psyche of David Lynch, and to contemplate understanding what certain scenes represent in the whole "Twin Peaks" universe would be foolish. This is essential viewing for any fan of the TV show and especially anyone thinking of watching "Twin Peaks: The Return" as several parts of this are relevant to the ongoing story.
It was openly mocked when it was originally released but time and the creative essence that Lynch had with this has made this movie beyond criticism. As a stand alone movie, it is fragmented and confusing with stand out performances by the principal cast, but this will never be a stand alone movie. it is far more central to the Twin Peaks story than any single episode of the series and does do a good job filling in the missing peices of Laura Palmer's life and offering a few secrets about the outcome of the third season. It leaves you with a sense of dread as you witness the decline of a teenager as she slips into drugs and prostitution in the small rural town, but Lynch is never that simple
