The incendiary debut feature of David Lynch, Eraserhead is a nocturnal odyssey like no other. Filmed over several years on next to no budget, it had been labelled as too bizarre and unclassifiable, but today is well remembered as one of the most seminal works in American cinema. Jack Nance plays the wire-haired protagonist, who stalks Lynch’s industrial netherworld and finds himself caring for a strange, inhuman offspring. The epitome of visionary cinema, Eraserhead taught generations of filmmakers that it was possible to push the boundaries and potential of cinema.
