Fire Walk With Me

The movie that explained the tv series that was on so much drugs I can't even... it's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me!

Laura Palmer goes to school and flirts with lots of guys. Then she goes out and has sex with lots of guys. However, she's also freaked out by a weird guy that comes into her room at night and then comes into her. She does manage to realise who it is, and it freaks her out. However, since she's blissed out on drugs, she doesn't really do anything about it until events overtake her and she spawns a pilot.

The problem with this movie is that it really relies on knowing the tv series well, otherwise most of the cameo characters won't mean anything. And I'm not sure how much of the tv series is referenced in this and how consistent it is. I'm guessing a lot, but... this is making me want to watch the series again, but I shouldn't because it is 90% rubbish and 10% incomprehensible.

The movie is too surreal to work on its own, but even context doesn't help.

I think it was ep18 of season 2 I made it up to when watching it last year before giving up on it. Was also listening to a Twin Peaks rewatch podcast that started after I'd started watching the series. https://www.idlethumbs.net/twinpeaks.

Thanks Pete! Since I will probably try rewatching the series, the podcast will help.
