    In the town of Twin Peaks, everyone has their secrets—but especially Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). In this prequel to his groundbreaking 1990s television series, David Lynch resurrects the teenager found wrapped in plastic at the beginning of the show, following her through the last week of her life and teasing out the enigmas that surround her murder. Homecoming queen by day and drug-addicted thrill seeker by night, Laura leads a double life that pulls her deeper and deeper into horror as she pieces together the identity of the assailant who has been terrorizing her for years. Nightmarish in its vision of an innocent torn apart by unfathomable forces, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is nevertheless one of Lynch’s most humane films, aching with compassion for its tortured heroine—a character as enthralling in life as she was in death.

    My guess is that this disc is going to be for the hard hardcore fan or the rare person who wants FWWM but doesn't already have the box set. They might have a couple interviews (Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise) and a critic talking about the movie. I wonder if they'll even be able to get the deleted scenes since the rights are or were apparently complicated.

    Yeah, I'm willing to buy this again if there's something new and substantial included, but I couldn't imagine what that could possibly be. Kinda similar to the way the Criterion Dr. Strangelove BD didn't add much over the Sony BD.

    It'll be interesting to see if it's a new transfer. The transfer for the movie in the Blu-Ray set was a step down in quality from the transfers for the TV episodes.

    I over estimated- the only new extra is a Sheryl Lee interview but at least the deleted scenes are included.

    I have to admit that one new interview is making it tough for me to want to rebuy this. That being said, I'm sure I'll break and pick it up during the B&N sale in the fall.

    Perhaps, but in the case of Strangelove, I think the Exhibiters' Trailer with Kubrick narrating and containing alternate takes/views makes the Criterion upgrade a must have. Plus there's the little envelope full of stuff!
