TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME
1992, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

In this prequel to the acclaimed television series TWIN PEAKS, David Lynch investigates the final days of the ill-fated Laura Palmer. In typical Lynchian fashion, mysteries beget more mysteries, and the dark side of the human condition coexists with moments of profound romanticism and visual poetry. An all-star cast includes Lynch regulars Kyle MacLachlan, Ray Wise and Harry Dean Stanton as well as Kiefer Sutherland, Heather Graham and Moira Kelly.


PARIS, TEXAS
1984, Janus Films, 147 min, USA/Germany, Dir: Wim Wenders

Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) has been missing for years when he suddenly reconnects with his brother, who has been raising Travis' son as his own. Travis tries to forge a new relationship with the seven-year old boy, but rebuilding a family proves more difficult than Travis would like. A poignant screenplay by Sam Shepard and an evocative use of the American landscape by cinematographer Robby Muller make this one of Wenders' most moving and acclaimed films. With Nastassja Kinski.


PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID
1973, Warner Bros., 122 min, USA, Dir: Sam Peckinpah

Director Sam Peckinpah’s take on the famous outlaw’s rise and fall is nothing less than magnificent - a sprawling, plaintive, achingly exquisite reflection on loss of all kinds. Billy (Kris Kristofferson) and his loose-knit gang (among them Bob Dylan, who also supplied the beautiful score) butt heads with cattle industry interests devouring the countryside, something that steers them onto a collision course with old comrade and new sheriff, Pat Garrett (James Coburn). Watch for the "Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door" sequence with Sheriff Baker (Slim Pickens) and his wife (Katy Jurado), one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful women in the history of Western cinema. With Harry Dean Stanton, R.G. Armstrong, Donnie Fritts, L.Q. Jones.
