OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

Eraserhead

Must-See Cinema! The first film from the disturbed genius of David Lynch!

Eraserhead iconDavid Lynch’s remarkable first feature is a true original. There’s little in the way of a coherent story: nervy Henry, living in a sordid industrial city of smoke, steam, and shadows, is forced to marry his girlfriend when she pronounces herself pregnant, and finds himself the father of an all-devouring, inhuman monster. But, almost like a surrealist movie, it has its own weird logic, mixing black comedy (concerning nuclear families and urban life), horror and sci-fi conventions, and pure fantasy. 
 
Best seen as a dark nightmare about sexuality, parenthood and commitment in relationships, it astounds through its expressionist sets and photography, the startling, sinister soundtrack, and relentlessly imaginative fluency.
