If you like Twin Peaks you might like thisBy a customer from Coventry , 15 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Warning, do not see this film before you have watched the whole Twin Peaks series; the movie will be totally incomprehensible and it includes massive spoilers for the series. If you have seen and enjoyed the series, this is essential viewing, although it is not at all what I expected, being much darker and without the humour of the series. Very surreal, but also visually very interesting. Will definitely not be to everyone?s tastes.

A journeyman workBy Walterono (6 reviews) , 02 Sep 2013Coming to this disk from 'Mulholland Drive' was perhaps not the best idea. The same kind of ingredients were here too - the bizarre characters, the deliberate dialogue - but it was so leaden footed! Scene after scene fell flat. Dialogue failed to make an impact. Chiefly of interest to show how far he had traveled by the time he came to his major films.
A Damn Fine Film...By snash123 (69 reviews) , 31 Aug 2013First and foremost watch this film with the subtitles on! Seriously you will be spending most of the movie turning the volume up and down, its really badly mixed... it certainly gave me garmanbosia! Well the other reviews pretty much sum up the movie so there's little I can say which already hasn't been said; e. g. don't watch until you have completely watched the pilot and the series. Don't expect all your favourite characters as some either weren't available for filming or didn't want to become typecast. Don't come away thinking all the answers are given, if anything it opens up more questions than answer... But above all, grab a 'damn fine cup of coffee' and some pie 'that will kill ya' or doughnuts and sit back and just enjoy! Its a masterpiece of a film, truly a worthy of a cult status. Oh and just a little heads up... did you know the guy who plays Pete Martell was Eraserhead?! I didn't until I was Googling some of the cast recently and there he was! :-)
Lynch Captures Real DealBy 2para (9 reviews) , 15 Aug 2013I love the scene where her father assails her at the dinner table upon her return from college, and she flees, forfeiting her lunch, to cry her eyes out in the toilet. The rendition given is pure verisimilitude. He perfectly captures in that one scene the story of her life. All out in the open now....
All the best characters missing, Cooper hardly in it.By MikeRNev (7 reviews) , 15 Aug 2013Not really good enough. It spent so much time trying to dot the I's and cross the T's of the original series to link it, that it didn't really have enough of an interesting storyline. All my favourite characters were missing. The Twin Peaks Sheriff's Dept. with all of its great characters just isn't in it. Agent Cooper hardly appears, and when he does he is a morose and different character. You really gain nothing much watching it, except a fuller explanation of Laura's last few hours. You could just read that in the synopsis. Believe me its a more interesting way to find it out,
Ah, Bob !By LittleFrank (26 reviews) , 25 Jul 2013The first 20 minutes is of 'second series' vintage, i. e. weird for the sake of it, with no real point to the weirdness. The remainder of the film is classic Twin Peaks darkness with an extra adult element that presumably was slightly too much for the TV producers. As if you need reminding, if you haven't seen at least the first series, this might not make a great deal of sense.
