Henry's Apartment

David Lynch

Eraser Head (feature film)

1976

A single room with a bricked up window, unexplained deposits of soil, impenetrable areas of shadow and perpetual sounds from elsewhere in the building invading every moment.

David Lynch loves to suggest and imply. The heavily shadowed interiors of Henry's building and his apartment in particular leave a huge amount to the imagination already fired up by what he has chosen to show us. By making clear from the offset that nothing we see will be familiar or predictable he succeeds in populating even the unseen parts of the room with mysterious potential. What we cannot see is as engaging and as charged as what we can see. This coupled with his peculiar timeless industrial retro aesthetic gives him license to take us just about anywhere.
