A dream of dark and troubling things . . . 


David Lynch’s 1977 debut feature, Eraserhead, is both a lasting cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerizing black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes and Herbert Cardwell, evocative sound design, and unforgettably enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey continues to haunt American cinema like no other film.


"David Lynch's remarkable first film, made in 1977, still looks like a minor masterpiece, mixing Gothic horror, surrealism and darkly expressionist mise-en-scène." - Derek Malcolm, London Evening Standard


"What makes Eraserhead great -- and still, perhaps the best of all Lynch's films? Intensity. Nightmare clarity. And perhaps also it's the single-mindedness of its vision." - Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
