eraserhead

Erwan lent me a DVD of Eraserhead last week, which I finally got around to watching last night. It freaked me out and, as usual with Lynch films, I didn't understand at all what it was about. However, the other Lynch films I've seen, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive, have both revealed themselves a bit upon further reflection, and discussion with others. Not so this one.My head hurts. Perhaps I'll go see Spiderman 2 this week...

The comment from lynch on the vhs box is something like (this is a serious rephrasing): i like to experiment with the concept of editing. i wait for a moment where the audience expects an edit and then draw it out for another minute or so. it makes people uncomfortable. i love that!
