The mind boggles to learn that Lynch labored on this pic for five years.

What's it about? I can hear you shout. Therein lies the rub: not much really.

Nothing more than a pretentious, incoherent and boring exercise in self-indulgent weirdness.

Whether there is more here than meets the horrified eye, is debatable, but 'Eraserhead' leaves no viewer cold.

Riveting, indecipherable and absolutely bizarre.

...unwrap this baby and you will discover a whole universe of untold depths and hidden textures in which to become trapped, lost or sublimely elevated. Lynch's debut feature is freakish perfection.

If you can't rejoice in David Lynch, what is there to be happy about?

As pure cinema, Eraserhead is in a universe all its own, writing and obeying its own oblique rules.

Time drips like old paint in Lynch's surreal experiment, that revels in all things upsetting, disorienting, dark, and mysterious.

May be the greatest debut by an American director after Citizen Kane.

Lynch's films exist independent of space and time, and only after twisting and turning through their labyrinthine visual corridors can we begin to piece together how they came to be in the first place.

What a masterpiece of texture, a feat of artisanal attention, an ingenious assemblage of damp, dust, rock, wood, hair, flesh, metal, ooze.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Eraserhead is a film that seems to require interpretation. Answers, however, are so distant that one wonders if they are even intended.
