A standalone version of the pilot for David Lynch’s immortal mystery about the life of a seemingly typical small town. Twenty minutes longer than the original, this is an alternative reality version of Twin Peaksin which closure is brought to the Laura Palmer case.

thanks david for not making me sleep for a week only to get to know who killed laura palmer. thanks for all the nightmares that ended up with bob hiding behind my bed. it was so worth it. best tv series ever.
This feature-length pilot is a marvelous self-contained work even if one goes by the American broadcast length over the 113-minute international standalone. Lynch destroys a Rockwellian small town before we even see it: a girl's wrapped corpse introduces us to Twin Peaks, and soon Lynch has impossibly killed innocence that never existed in the first place. The grief resonates beyond the confines of television.
