If I were to list my top five movies of all time, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" would be somewhere on the top. In fact, I did my film class thesis on this film.

For those of you who have not seen Twin Peaks:
Twin Peaks is an American television program created by David Lynch and Mark Frost and originally aired in 1990. The show is about a small town community which is shattered by the mysterious death of a beloved and popular teenage girl named Laura Palmer. The show featured an ensemble cast, which included actors like Jack Nance, David Lynch, Miguel Ferrera, Piper Laurie, Don S. Davis, Heather Graham, Robin Lively, Billy Zane, and David Duchovny as a transgendered DEA agent. The audience fell in love with the many characters of this tiny town, along with the main character, Dale Cooper--a sophisticated, endearing, exuberant, and perceptive FBI agent, who comes to the small lumber town to help the local police force resolve the murder of the community's beloved homecoming queen.

However, David Lynch was more fascinated with the unraveling of the mysterious dead girl, Laura Palmer. In his original idea of Twin Peaks, the murder of Laura Palmer should have never been resolved. When the network executives forced Lynch's hand to reveal the true identity of Laura Palmer's killer, Lynch decided to walk away from the project mid-way through the second season, but returned to the show as the character FBI Chief Gordon Cole, and to direct the final episode after the decision by the network executives to cancel the program at the end of season two.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was the mirror opposite of the show. While the program was mostly light-hearted and filled with humor and romance which often overshadowed the heavy, dramatic, and scary moments, the movie was very dark, sinister, provocative, and ominous. And Lynch decided instead of focusing on the community of Twin Peaks, to focused on one character--the final days of Laura Palmer. Most American fans of the show became furious and horrified over Lynch's prequel to their beloved television program. The hostile American critics tore apart his film, while the British critics gave huge praises to Lynch's "masterpiece." After this response, Lynch chose never to return to Twin Peaks--that is, until Showtime decided to make a deal with Lynch and Frost to resurrect the fictional town in 2015. The show and the film became a cult classic, and spawned a few book deals, including the lost "Diary of Laura Palmer" and the "Secret History of Twin Peaks," written by Mark Frost, which delves into the supernatural mythos behind the tiny Washington town "set between two worlds."

The scene above is a favorite among most fans of the Lynch film. If you think the guy dancing with Donna (#2) might look a little familiar, he is Chris Pedersen, the guy who played Jack Diddley in the American punk rock classic film "Suburbia," Crawford in "Platoon," and Bunker in "Point Break." He's also married to L7 bassist Jennifer Finch.

The music above was written and arranged by David Lynch himself, and performed by Don Falzone (bass), David Jaurequi (guitar), and Steven Hodges (drums).
