Lara Flynn Boyle didn't return as Donna. I'm not the type that has a problem with different actors playing the same character. And I certainly understand Lara Flynn Boyle's stated reasons for not wanting to continue to play a teenaged high school student in her late twenties. But the replacement actress, Moira Kelly, really lacked a lot of what Flynn Boyle brought to the role.
The leveraging of Kiefer Sunderland and Chris Isaak as FBI agents. They performed their roles leading up to the transition to the locale of Twin Peaks beautifully. It's a shame they were limited to the first half hour.
Between the television show and movie, Sheryl Lee grew substantially as an actress. Her performance was stellar.
No "American ending". I was talking with a friend of mine from eastern Europe a few years back. He told me that when a movie ends where everything works out and all is well, that's called an "American ending". Sometimes movies warrant such an ending. More often they do not.
Everything Kyle MacLachlan did was okay but somehow irrelevant. Maybe Lynch and Co. were aiming for future opportunities to continue the story. But all of the MacLachlan scenes seemed bolted on to the narrative.
David Lynch at close to his best.
I really wish David Lynch and Richard Kelly would do a Vulcan mind meld and turn out something deranged.
I'm looking forward to the reboot.
