FWWM has swiftly become my favourite film and i love every scene, but my favourite scenes are Laura and Bobby in the woods (their chemistry), Laura and Donna in the club (the music) and Laura and Leland in the car (the mania). Her shouting 'Dad!?' is one of my favourite things ever. Which are your favourite scenes?

Mmmmmm this is a tough one. I really love the Partyland scene with the music drowning the voices and the corruption of Donna (I liked the scripted way BOB manipulates it but I know that didn’t really make it). I think her last 24 hours are beautifully horrible. It’s painful to feel it all. 

And I love the David Bowie entrance and the missing pieces version of all that.  So so cool.

I'm a sucker for the Convenient Store scene (as seen and then as extended in the Missing Pieces), though that feels like a given. I also have to go back to Deer Meadow, particularly all scenes from the Fat Trout Trailer Park. But that's forcing myself to choose.

"The good Dale is in the Lodge, and he can't leave. Write it in your diary." Gives me a shiver just thinking about it.

The club scene is great, the drama between Laura and the corruption of Donna. And the fact that the music is really loud, you can only hear snatches of conversation like in a real club, its very well done.

Must admit I'm a sucker for the whole Chester Desmond/Philip Jeffries opening as well.

Easy, the scene where Laura and Donna are laying on their backs in donnas living room, talking. It's so clear that they are having different conversations. It says so much about their relationship, and we see the process of Laura letting go of her own life.

That's a beautiful scene. You nailed its meaning there for me too.

When everyone looks at the Missing Pieces etc do you ever wish for a cut (from Lynch) that incorporates them or would you think it unbalances the movie away from Laura too much? There are some scenes that I think really add to her story.

There is a fan edit floating about in the ether that has the missing pieces edited back in, in the order presented in the script. It really works as one piece! It gives even more depth to Laura's story, while fleshing out the prologue. It's pretty much become my definitive go-to version of FWWM.

I had heard of it - Q2 edit? I am intrigued. Part of me isn’t sure given Lynch’s vision and the respect I have for it. Is it well presented?

Hi, sorry for the late reply. It is indeed the Q2 edit. It's very well done, seamless in fact. I seem to remember the editor saying something along the lines of that he followed Lynch and Engel's script closely in putting the missing scenes back in, so the scenes ring true to the flow of the story. I very much recomend giving it a watch at least once, if for no other reason than getting some sort of look at what Lynch's original vision for the film would have been.
