Brendan McDonald’s review published on Letterboxd:
Over the past few weeks, I was gripped and entertained with David Lynch's television series, Twin Peaks. Today, I watched this prequel film, hoping that it would recapture the feeling I felt watching the series and provide some worthy additions to the world. I enjoyed this. It might not be quite as good as the series, but it is just as much of a fascinating, intriguing, gripping and, at times, baffling watch. It offers some solid insight into the events leading up to the series and I had a great time watching it. It isn't my favorite Lynch film, but it is a worthy addition to his filmography.
