A lazy half-way step to a director's edition

In a way it seems wrong to review Missing Pieces as a movie, since it's really just a more elaborate than usual DVD extras video.

It's been years since I saw Fire Walk with Me (which, against popular and critical opinion of the time, I loved), so often I can't put these scenes in a real context within the film. Still, it's interesting to see more of Laura's life, and it's unfortunate these scenes were cut.

Other scenes, on the other hand, aren't really worth much, particularly an endless fight scene near the beginning (the first half hour of Missing Pieces is pretty missable).

Some scenes were basically for fans of characters I never cared about. There were plot threads of Twin Peaks I was never much interested in, like the saw mill, and I'm fine with the movie not doing a shout out to every character.

Releasing these scenes is a nice present to Twin Peaks fans, but it would have been better to simply release the original cut, which was over three hours. Noble amateurs have apparently cut Missing Pieces into the original movie, bless them, but they shouldn't have had to.

If you liked the movie and want to see some more of Sheryl Lee's amazing performance and of the general wackiness, check it out. For that it's quite good.
