I thought it was really good but the lady turning up naked all of the time was annoying.

I don't think so, I think it was a clear sign of vulnerability and an explicit statement about sexualisation in general.

Set in the 50s but half of the design, hair, and makeup was very 80s. Strange and almost seems lazy, not intentional or metaphorical. It's a bit too light on story, plays out like a dream/nightmare. I was tense the whole time and it flew by while I was watching it. Interesting but wouldn't recommend it to Lynch fans.
