Yuri Ferreira’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was the first David Lynch film I've ever watched, and you can just feel it's not, by far, his best.
The movie is freakishly daring-- and starts twisting your mind in many ways, right at the very start... but not in a good way.
Even though it comes out of a surreal vein, the verisimilitude of the story is shattered in multiple ways, with its plot flaws being too glaring to ignore-- as if Lynch himself didn't fully believe in it.
Luckily, the nightmare-ish, bloody, dark and twisted images throughout the movie (especially those delivered in the shape of Robert Blake's character) makes for an unforgettablle experience.
