Eraserhead ★★★★★

Watching David Lynch's Eraserhead feels like slowly sinking into a warm puddle of electrified intangible darkness and I love every goddamn minute of it.

There's something comforting about this movie that I just can't put into words. It's dark, disturbing and unsettling, but also oddly welcoming and seductive.

I love the sound design. There's never a silent or quiet moment in this film. Always a buzzing or a humming noise in the backround; sometimes even in the foreground (I love that silent splash though).

The production design is equally great, particularly Henry's room. A plant with no pot, a window to a brick wall, a photo of a mushroom cloud; all of it just adds a lot of character and mystery to the place.

I love this movie. Thank you, Mr. Lynch.
