A deranged nightmare of a film. The surrealism is very much like a bad nightmare. Everything about it is sickly, dark, cancerous and disgusting. It is highly original and worth watching. No one can really match David Lynch's style.

Utterly bizarre but curiously fascinating oddity from David Lynch. Some may find it's deliberately unfathomable surrealism exasperating, but the powerful imagery alone makes it worth a look.

Eraserhead

When mixing the versatile genre of surrealism with an experimental branch, two are the most possible outcomes: to divide audiences or to release crap in the theatres. When the first result is the reward for the director, the film will separate those who admire its pretentiousness, bizarreness and visual style from those who will call it garbage since they psychologically stick to their narrow-minded mentalities, except for those who felt that their respective sensibilities was severely attacked. If we take all of this into consideration and think on the fact that David Lynch is a poet of contemporary surrealism and unconventional American poetry, we'll find his filmography rather interesting. From physical deformities to blue velvets and strange highways, he is multilayered. Even more int...

I liked it? ..and nature is gross

So Iíve been trying to get into David Lynch because of Twin Peaks return (loved TP but undecided on the movies as of now). I liked this oneÖ I think. I donít know. It was really interesting to look at and the erniess the sound design creates kind of sneaks up on you. The atmosphere of the whole movie is really impressive actually. It has such a unique and powerful feel. I just wish I cared about the characters/conflict. Iím sure there are many theories on what the movie's about. What I got out of it: because of the modern world we live in today, natural/organic have become gross and disgusting to us. No idea if thatís what Lynch was actually trying to say, but the plants growing around the main character's home grossed me out. And when all these puppies are feeding on their mother it's re...

Disturbing and shocking, but also unique

David Lynch you are a genius.

Eraserhead tells the story of Henry Spencer who lives in an industrial wasteland where he must contend with a new, strange baby, an unreliable girlfriend, a beautiful girl across the hall and the lady in the radiator.

Never before have I seen a movie that disturbed me, grossed me out and left me confused, but for some reason I can't stop thinking about it. Eraserhead is both shocking and unique, as this movie drives into the mind of a man who's having a living nightmare of rising a child that he never asked for, the environment that he's living in and just how unhappy he is. What David Lynch is so good at doing is making he's movies feel like a nightmare or a dream, just by how it's directed and shot creates the effect perfectly, and Eraserhead is the i...
