“You know, this is — excuse me — a damn fine cup of coffee!”
Despite David Lynch‘s critically acclaimed cult-classic TWIN PEAKS only running on television for two seasons (1990-1991), the show managed to make an enormous impact upon both its devoted audience and the greater pop-culture landscape when the series’ slavish fan following got the big-screen adaptation they were hoping for in 1992, when TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME was released.
Though the film is often considered a prequel to the events contained within the TV show’s premise surrounding the mysterious death of high school student Laura Palmer and the special FBI agent tasked with the the investigation, TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME effectively answers many of the deep questions fans had following the show’s cancellation.
As TWIN PEAKS devotees wait with bated breath and gear up for the brand new series – which premieres on Sunday, May 21 – we felt the time was right to revisit our favourite weirdo Washington town – home to mares eating oats, cherry pie, log ladies and more – on our gib neercs. Get ready for David Lynch‘s ever-present quirky aesthetic, a fantastic score from Angelo Badalamenti, and a star-studded cast including Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Peggy Lipton, Heather Graham, Mädchen Amick, Chris Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland, Miguel Ferrer, Moira Kelly, Kiefer Sutherland, Harry Dean Stanton, and David Bowie.
