Assembled from the deleted and extended scenes of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, and showing the untold portion of the FBI's investigation into the murder of Teresa Banks, as well as expanding on the last seven days of Laura Palmer's life, Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces becomes an integral part of the deeper mysteries surrounding the Twin Peaks series.Written by
This is not a movie, but a collection of scenes deleted from "Fire walk With Me". Standing alone, this movie is nonsense and extremely boring. I know that because I accidentally watched it before "Fire walk With Me". But once seen right after TV series and "Fire walk With Me", this addition gets a completely new shape and while watching it I enjoyed more than I enjoyed the movie itself. Those deleted scenes are more like the original TV show than the movie and I think that cutting them out was a terrible mistake. I suppose they did it to cut the movie to a reasonable length, because all together lasts almost four hours, but with these scenes included all objections to the movie disappear. With these scenes in it, the movie would have the same charm and atmosphere we loved in the TV show and most of the characters movie is missing appear here. Besides that, in several spots during the movie, we have sudden switches where it is obvious that something is missing. Well, these deleted scenes are missing. They deleted scenes without ironing the edges in places they were cut out. I saw somewhere that fans asked Lynch to make an extended version of the movie in which he would join "Fire walk With Me" and "Missing Pieces" into one harmonious piece of art, but he refused to do it. So some extreme fan did it on his own. You can find the extended fan version of the movie that lasts 3,5 hours. They did not include every single deleted scene in it, because the goal was to make harmonious result, not to put everything back at any cost. I have to find and see it one of these days, but it was too much for me to do it right after watching the whole series and movie in just a few days period. Maybe in a few years, when the time comes to refresh my memory. If anyone already saw it, I would like to hear your impressions. All in all, this is must watch for every "Twin Peaks" fan, because it fills many holes in the story and opens some new points of view.
