At the time of its release, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me was dismissed for a number of reasons. Namely, it was a prequel at a time when the series on which the movie was based ended on a cliffhanger. People wanted to see the story continue, not regress backward and tell us what we already know. It lacked the humor of the show, taking the world of Twin Peaks onto a much darker trajectory. And the final blow was that there was hardly any Special Agent Dale Cooper of the FBI.
