The INLAND EMPIRE-induced Lynch kick continues. Fire Walk with Me is the much darker prequel to the TV show and ends with Laura Palmer’s death. In retrospect, you can see Lynch groping toward equally untethered and disturbing but more rewarding and complete work like Mulholland Dr. The best scene is set to an endlessly repeating blues riff in a red and blue-strobing underground club, where Laura and Donner meet the Great Went.
