Colin the dude’s review:
Simply one of the most authentic films based on true events.
Acting across the board is nothing short of terrific. John Hurt's John Merrick is one of the greatest performances put to celluloid.
Perhaps Lynch's most straightforward story (have yet to see The Straight Story), but also his most powerful and sympathetic character film.
R.I.P. Mr. Merrick.
