...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.

Disturbing, repulsive, hilarious, frightening, sensitive and challenging.

Some of it is disturbing, some of it is embarrassingly flat, but all of it shows a degree of technical accomplishment far beyond anything else on the midnight-show circuit.

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.

Lynch, as he does with all his films, refuses to explain anything, although he does say that he has yet to read an interpretation that matches his.

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

The discomfort we feel with the film indicates that the truths contained in Eraserhead, whatever they may be, are as surely true as they are unexamined.

A stream of subconsciousness work of art, Eraserhead is Lynch's most surreal film. Packed with grotesque physical deformity and quest for spiritual purity, the film flaunts eerie sound and brilliant imagery.

David Lynch's first feature and, arguably, his best.

Lynch's remarkable first feature is a true original.
July 1, 2005
Eraserhead is a work of rare genius and real bravery; it's a comic nightmare we all have at once and whose meanings lay just out of reach.

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

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

Insanely inventive and evocative.

Weird for weird's sake, but certainly memorable

Seen today, Eraserhead may make no more sense than it did 30 years ago, but its casually sinister air can now be seen as so much a part of Lynch's mature work.
