Michael Coombs’s review published on Letterboxd:
Kate Winslet is a goat. Like seriously. The best of her generation (actresses born in the 70s) and it’s not even very close (sorry, Amy Adams). Mare is a great character and Winslet absolutely murders this role. I will be shocked if she doesn’t win an Emmy. Good luck topping this, fellow actresses. Jean Smart also amazing. I also liked seeing Evan Peters do something more grounded and really enjoyed him in his role (that drunk scene; also “have a good night, mare. Good? Night? Mare? Good nightmare?”). I love a good murder mystery and I was entertained and intrigued throughout this whole limited series. You know the narrative is going to keep twisting and turning, but I had confidence the writers would keep things unpredictable and find a way to make it not seem outlandish. I think they nailed it. Episode 5 felt like a finale but the actual finale was pitch perfect. I loved this show.
