Eraserhead (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on May 23, 2005

A perfectly realized vision of hell on earth where there is no comfort to be found in family, love, sex, work, or home… perhaps only in death.  The way Lynch unsettles the viewer is masterful, from the constant hum of machinery to the perpetual decay of the city to the incredible design of the “baby” — certainly one of the most horrifying creatures in cinema.  And yet despite these depressing and unnerving settings, there remains Lynch’s rich sense of humor, and as nightmarish as Eraserhead is, it’s also very comedic.  A supremely impressive film, and the years of work show on the screen.  Rating: 10
