David Lynch Retrospective - Session 1
(1976, dir. David Lynch, w/ Jack Nance, Charlotte Stewart, Allen Joseph, Jeanne Bates)
A surreal, terrifyingly sublime and tragically funny tale about a man named Henry; Eraserhead employs an industrial sound-scape and a strange dreamlike visual world to explore one man's fear of fatherhood and the absurdities of familial life. Lynch seems to be able to craft cinematic tone and affect more permeating and resonant than anyone, with Eraserhead, it is one of the most wonderfully piercing and procative films ever made.
