Consensus: For better or worse, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is every bit as strange and twisted as you'd expect from David Lynch.

In its own singular, deeply strange way, Fire Walk With Me is David Lynch's masterpiece.

In Twin Peaks the movie, all the twists get straightened out. The thrill is gone.

An ungainly and unnecessary prequel to the excellent TV series.

There have always been two sides to Lynch: the inscrutable, demonic prankster and the rhapsodic dreamer. In Fire Walk With Me, he's at least trying to recover his poetic sincerity. If only his dreams weren't starting to look like reruns.

For those who are willing to go the distance with Lynch, the return trip to Twin Peaks is well worth the trouble.

A horrible masterpiece. Ugly, abstract and unrelenting, it's like having someone else's nightmare.

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.

For a film with a pre-established conclusion, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me seems depressingly interminable.
