    Twenty years ago today Fire Walk With Me came out to theaters. Opening night I saw it twice in a row. My mom pcekid me up from high school and drove me the twenty miles to the closest theater. Months earlier my dad found me the shooting script at a convention. Once home I highlighted everything that was missing from the movie. I had that script memorized. The week it played I ended up seeing it five times. It is still one of the greatest movies of all time to me.
