Eraserhead (1977)

This movie is on so many lists that I have looked at for years and years.  I don’t know why I never bothered to sit down and just watch it.  Well today is the day.  It’s directed by David Lynch.  If that doesn’t sell you, perhaps Twight and Fast and the Furious are more your speed.  No pun intended because I would have said something like Speed Racer or just Speed, so see, not intended.  I have no idea what to expect from this 40 year old film, but I am excited and cautiously optimistic.  This is the dude that gave us Mulholland Dr, one of the best films I’ve ever seen.  As always, I will be posting spoilers as I watch, but you can skip to the final paragraph to get my final thoughts as well as a rating.  

SPOILERS

 

This is a black and white film, but that shouldn’t stop anybody who actually cares about film.  The fuck am I seeing?  Well here’s a gallery because I don’t have words.

Final Thoughts – How the hell am I supposed to write something competent after seeing it for the first time?  This seems like a film that requires multiple viewings to truly be appreciated.  Not a film to watch with a headache, as I just did.  I think it would be really awesome to see on the big screen.  It’s a weird, weird ass film, which is fine.  Just a lot to really take in.  If you want to see something absolutely unique, this is a fine thing to try.  If you want easy to follow narrative, this isn’t really for you.  I would watch this again I think, but I want to be feeling good the next time.

Rating: 5.0 because I simply am not 100% that I will revisit this, but if I do, it’s probably around the mid 6 range.
