Eraserhead

Ive been a Lynch fan for years and finally got my hands on Eraserhead dvd which is sold from david lynchs web site. Ive been waiting years to see this film and i have to say all though i still cant figure the whole thing out (but what do you expect?)it is one of the best lit films i have ever seen.the stories included on the dvd of how the film was made etc. is excellent. Whatever happened to works of art?

In the 70's, Eraserhead was a cult classic, and sometimes played as a double bill with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I liked the talking baby head scenes---especially when the head is smoking a cigar, and later gets sick. Mind you, the baby is already sick, since it's only a head. Remember this line? "Hi! My name's Bill. I have bad knees."

The scene were Eraserhead's wife/girlfriend---whatever, has those partial babys come out has to be one of the sickist things I've ever seen in a movie. Lunch, my hero! Have you ever seen Fire Walk With Me? I have that tape. It's very disturbing.

I own Fire Walk With Me as well plus every episode of Twin Peaks which IMHO probably one of the best TV series of all times.You would never see anything like that on TV these days.Push Nevada was really good and had some Twin Peaks influences but it just couldnt get the ratings.I would have to agree that FWWM is disturbing and all though most people didnt seem t o like the film i think that its excellent and it just gives me that un easy feeling every time i watch it!

Texas Chainsaw, anyone? I found that disturbing as well. It starts slow, builds up and ends with a bloody scream. Okay, back to Lynch!

That's interesting. I forgot about the father's "unfeeling" arm. Since Eraserhead was Lynch's first film, I suppose he developed the arm thing to the point where the arm went missing, and reborn (the arm) as a nasty midget living in "the lodge." Half way between Heaven and Hell? Purgatory? I never got that.
