TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME, the prequel to the cult series, is every bit as strange and twisted as you'd expect from David Lynch.
In the folksy town of Deerfield, Wash., FBI Agent Desmond (Chris Isaak) inexplicably disappears while hunting for the man who murdered a teen girl. The killer is never apprehended, and, after experiencing dark visions and supernatural encounters, Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) chillingly predicts that the culprit will claim another life. Meanwhile, in the similarly cozy town of Twin Peaks, hedonistic beauty Lara Palmer (Sheryl Lee) hangs with lowlifes and seems destined for a grisly fate.
★★★★ "The quintessential Lynch. Prepare to be confused/ intrigued/ frustrated/ disturbed/ hooked." - Empire
★★★★ "In its own singular, deeply strange way, Fire Walk With Me is David Lynch's masterpiece." - Village Voice
"At its best, it's a dream within a dream, a nightmare in endlessly reflecting pop mirrors, a screen full of TV-movie sex and horror kitsch blowing up right in our faces." - Los Angeles Times
David Lynch: the master magician of the screen
The 1980s and 90s and beyond belonged to David Lynch, the successful American film director whose widely influential movies peaked during those decades. Despite his unusual style and the strange worlds in his movies, Lynch became a household name in the US and beyond. The inimitable mixture of surrealism and expressionism on the big screen drilled holes deep into the subconscious of the films' viewers.
Luna Outdoor is excited to present a showcase of a David Lynch Retrospective: from this true Master of Surreal Cinema.
Kicking off with the Wild at Heart (1990) pairing Laura Dern with the irrepressible Nic Cage as young lovers on the run in this 30th anniversary screening; next we'll screen Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), the big screen prequel that fills in the final days of doomed Laura Palmer; followed by the black-and-white body horror film Eraserhead (1977). Road trips are a recurring theme in Lynch movies; Bill Pullman and Patricia Arquette are unforgettable in the next film screening, the identity shifting Lost Highway (1997), while world's collide in one of Lynch’s greatest masterpieces, the Naomi Watts-led Mulholland Drive (2001); and just in case you didn't get enough of them the first time around, Dern and Cage are back for a second helping/screening of Wild at Heart to finish off the retrospective.
