Editorial Reviews

- IMPORT FROM SOUTH KOREA - LANGUAGE: ENGLISH - OPTIONAL SUBTITLES: KOREAN - NTSC ALL REGIONS - Is it a nightmare or an actual view of a post-apocalyptic world? Set in an industrial town in which giant machines are constantly working, spewing smoke, and making noise that is inescapable, Henry Spencer lives in a building that, like all the others, appears to be abandoned. The lights flicker on and off, he has bowls of water in his dresser drawers, and for his only diversion he watches and listens to the Lady in the Radiator sing about finding happiness in heaven. Henry has a girlfriend, Mary X, who has frequent spastic fits. Mary gives birth to Henry's child, a frightening looking mutant, which leads to the injection of all sorts of sexual imagery into the depressive and chaotic mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars "But what the hell do they know, I said?" December 2, 2003
By Lao Che
Format:DVD
If you're reading this, then you've seen this movie or are at least curious what all the hype is about?

The late Stanley Kubrick, the only major filmmaker Lynch has cited as a direct cinematic influence, believed that ERASERHEAD was one of the most perfect "cinematic experiences" created to date. This movie has enjoyed success on the midnight movie circuit for years, particularly in NYC where it ran almost every night for something like five years straight. I've seen it on big and little screens in three different states. Insofar as interpretations are concerned, I've long since tossed all that out the window. In terms of rational comprehension, ERASERHEAD is the fabled big fish that remains brilliantly elusive of any attempts to capture it.

This movie gets better, and more humorous, every time I watch it: in my opinion - ERASERHEAD is the cinematic experience that comes the closest to capturing "dream logic", next to the equally brilliant WAKING LIFE. If you ever get the chance, watch ERASERHEAD in a movie theater with a great sound system - you will understand why Stanley Kubrick was moved enough to make his statement. It's like experiencing someone else's dream - the ultimate act of voyeurism? As if I was granted audience to a demonstration of delicate brain surgery, and catching glimpses of the patient's face throughout the operation (particularly the opening scene).

5.0 out of 5 stars A haunting dream of dark and disturbing things... April 14, 2000
Format:DVD
WHEN will they re-release this masterpiece on video and DVD? This film is purest Lynch. It isn't a movie, it's an experiance. David Lynch himself said that he didn't so much think of Eraserhead, than feel it. Never have I heard a more true statement. 'Eraserhead' is Atmosphere with a capital A, and contains some truly unnerving moments that come straight out of our darkest nightmares. David Lynch is a true artist. To watch Eraserhead is to be totally absorbed into another world; Henry and his bizarre hairdo; the gentle yet strangely disturbing Lady in the Radiator; and last but not least, the hideous 'Baby,' a truly grotesque little monster who is more terrifying than any other man-made creature in motion picture history. (Lynch has refused to say how he created the Baby....IF he made it, that is. CREEEEEEEEEEEEPYYYYY! ) There is an unrelenting sense of menace and fear throughout all the proceedings. Some may huff and dismiss 'Eraserhead' as an 'artsy-fartsy' flick intended for the smallest film cults. 'Eraserhead' is not cult; it's timeless. If only Lynch would create another film of this magnitude and purity. Maybe he still will.I look forward to the re-release of this ignored classic with great anticipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Personal Film Ever Created April 16, 2002
Format:DVD
David Lynch's surreal masterpiece ERASERHEAD, is in my humble opinion the most personal 90 minutes of celluloid ever created. As with many of his other films, theories abound about this "nightmare on film," and it seems people have more fun dissecting (no pun intended) the imagery and symbols than actually watching the film. It's certainly not enjoyable to watch, or entertaining by any stretch of the imagination, but it is compelling, engrossing, and disturbing. A true film "experience." There's never been anything like it from anyone else, or Lynch himself for that matter, and more likely than not we'll never see anything like it again. At it's most simplistic it's Lynch's fears and horror concerning "family" and "industrialism" taken to the nth degree. Most people describe it as post-apocolyptic, but it's truly modern/contemporary, just dark and unfamiliar to most. But again, like with many of Lynch's films--especially the recent MULHOLLAND DRIVE--you'd have to be David Lynch to fully understand everything that takes place or is shown, and that's what makes his movies so intriguing. Are his films weird and mysterious on purpose, or is this all normal to him? Of course none of us can ever know. Let's hope the rumors are true and that this will finally be available in the very near future.

This review pertains only to this particular edition. If you want commentary on the film, there are many fine reviews elsewhere.

This is called a "Limited Edition 2 Disc Gift Box" and you're probably wondering (as I did) what exactly this means and if it's worth the $75 list price. Here's what you get: two 8" by 8" heavy cardboard boxes containing one DVD each, along with a square booklet. Each box has an outer sleeve (one for Eraserhead, one for The Short Films of David Lynch), and both boxes have a larger sleeve that holds both. These sleeves aren't quite like DVD slipcases - they're much more flimsy and cheap. The 8x8 boxes are about an inch thick, but are basically empty. The DVD is, of course, very thin and the booklet is 20 pages. I have no idea why they are so thick, unless they're supposed to be like 16mm film boxes or something.

The booklets are a bit like scrapbooks. They are mostly pictures of varying quality along with a page talking about the DVD transfer. All-in-all, it has about five or ten minutes worth of interest - there's just not much there to see.

The DVDs are exactly the same as the individual releases. You get the same edition with the same special features.

Ultimately, you'll need to determine the value of this set for yourself. I see no reason to own it. You can buy both Eraserhead and the Short Films for $40 or less. The booklets are nothing special and the packaging isn't great either. It's not like the films get the "criterion" treatment or anything like that. The individual releases are pretty nice already, and at less than half the price of this set, I'd recommend buying them separately. I'm pretty disappointed with this actually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird and strange movie but I like it.
If you like David Lynch movies you like this movie. It's very strange and weird. There are disturbing scenes so you might want to concider renting it before you want to own it.
