Eraserhead Still

Unlimited imagination on a very limited budget. Early manifestation of Lynch's dark world.

The dark and nightmarish imagery of Lynch's works already manifests itself in this debut feature. Henry, the man with a super-weird hairdo, rushes into marriage with his sweetheart, but the fruit of their love is a freak baby. This and life itself are too hard to bear, causing Henry to cut up his child with his own hands. Lynch started out as a painter before switching to filmmaking.

The novels of Kafka and Gogol are also major influences. Eraserhead, with its surreal visual style, paints a freakish picture of human anxiety and the collapse of relationships. Made on a very limited budget but unlimited imagination, Eraserhead is the quintessential American cult movie.

* Post-screening seminar with Matthew Cheng and Rita Hui in Cantonese.
