United States | 1992 | David Lynch
David Lynch’s prequel to his cult TV series (made after the show was canceled) is one of his darkest, creepiest, and most surreal works. Set in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington, the film depicts the events (including another murder) leading up to the mysterious death of teen Laura Palmer, where the TV series began. Kyle MacLachlan reprises his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper, and the movie boasts mesmerizing sequences, some truly scary moments, a brilliant soundtrack, and a powerful, trance-like pull. With David Bowie, Kiefer Sutherland, Heather Graham, Harry Dean Stanton, and Lynch himself. “A masterpiece.” –Mark Kermode.
