Eraserhead

David Lynch

feature film

1976

Bleakly quirky black-and-white film set in an unsettling urban-industrial limbo. Notable for, among other things, brilliant use of sound in underpinning a highly persuasive vision of strangeness.

Structure

Structured like a simple fairy story this tale of doomed love is overlaid and detailed with such uniquely unlikely and visceral elements that its rather basic shape is concealed. This film introduced David Lynch to the public. It was hard to imagine then that it might seem relatively conventional, even classical, more than thirty years later.
