Quickie: Eraserhead (1977)

Things that come to mind after watching Eraserhead:

• Um… 

• Goodbye, sweet dreams. Hello, nightmares. 

• David Lynch is hands down the biggest weirdo working in the film industry.

• Why is the dinner scene literally the beginning of a porno? 

• Lynch basically created Tim Burton’s visionary style.

• Is this movie about social anxiety? Parenthood? Abortion? Affairs? Murder? Aliens? 

• Wait. Scratch that. It’s probably about nothing specific. Lynch is random at heart. 

• This movie is un-review-able. 

• Am I going to hell for strangely liking this?

• I never want to be a dad. Ever.

• Is this Lynch’s attempt at telling us that he is, in fact, an extraterrestrial himself? 

• Time to go vegan.

Verdict: B+

“Eraserhead” is now available to rent and buy on YouTube, Google Play, Vudu, Amazon Prime, iTunes, and The Criterion Channel.
