Tommy’s review published on Letterboxd:
Lynch's most disturbing, and also most tragic film. There's just such an impending sense of doom from the moment you see Laura until the, well, if you know you know. (Not gonna spoil) The tone and atmosphere of this is just so perfectly crafted and immersive. It works so well as a prequel just due to the fact you feel so wrong watching it knowing how it will inevitably end, but you can't look away. The last 15 minutes is Lynch at his darkest and after the (still relatively dark but also) playful, comedic and cheesy tone of the original series, that's really bold. My only issue with this is, as many other people will tell you, some of the acting is terrible, but by the end, I couldn't help to overlook it.
