What makes it so haunting is the sensitivity to its lead characters and their unusual plight.

shares its themes with Dead Ringers and A Zed & Two Noughts, even if it is not as disturbing as the former, as downright weird as the latter, or as intelligent as either.

Shares some themes with Lynch's The Elephant Man.

The Polish brothers make an auspicous debut, and establish a tone -- like it or not, they've delivered on it since then.

...straddles the stylistic gulf between David Lynch and the Coen brothers. It is a creepy film, beautiful in odd and disturbing ways.

Audience Reviews for Twin Falls Idaho


Is an unusual movie. Its true, what you remember after the movie ends is the twins whispering in each other's ears.

Not a bad movie. The twins were fun to watch. Overall I don't give it more because I didn't connect with anyone, and I felt like I was supposed be emotional at the end and wasn't.

Extremely compelling and intriguing. It's a haunting film, but not in an unwatchable way. It's haunting in mmore of a darkly poetic way. What makes it watchable is the fact that it doesn't seek to be exploitative and disturbing in a David Lynch sort of way. This is a very interesting subject for a debut film, and a really good debut at that. The acting, especially from the three leads is really impressive, and is to be commended. This is not a film for all tastes, as there is a lack here of what most mainstream audiences crave for in a film, but as a moody, brooding, tragic love story indie/art house piece, Twin Falls Idaho succeeds immensely.
