Critic Reviews of "Eraserhead"Michael Wilmington Chicago TribuneOctober 14, 2014
What makes Eraserhead great -- and still, perhaps the best of all Lynch's films? Intensity. Nightmare clarity. And perhaps also it's the single-mindedness of its vision.Tom Buckley New York TimesOctober 14, 2014
A murkily pretentious shocker.Variety Staff VarietySeptember 25, 2007
The mind boggles to learn that Lynch labored on this pic for five years.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderSeptember 25, 2007
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.V.A. Musetto New York PostJanuary 17, 2007
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.Nathan Lee Village VoiceJanuary 17, 2007
What a masterpiece of texture, a feat of artisanal attention, an ingenious assemblage of damp, dust, rock, wood, hair, flesh, metal, ooze.Sean Axmaker Seanax.comJanuary 13, 2017
"In heaven, everything is fine," but in Eraserhead (1977) nothing is fine. David Lynch's debut feature is grim, disturbed, mutated, claustrophobic, a world that appears to be unraveling-or, more accurately, decaying-before our eyes.Eric Melin Lawrence.comDecember 13, 2015
Linear plots with easily defined cause and effect are the kinds of stories we are used to, but sometimes it's refreshing to enter a world where logic takes a backseat to purely evocative storytelling.Peter Ackroyd The SpectatorSeptember 29, 2015
It is the vision of the paranoid transposed upon the screen; the fact that it remains extremely interesting ought, I suppose, to be worrying. But perhaps our eyes have become so desensitised that nothing, any more, will widen the iris.Peter Bradshaw GuardianOctober 14, 2014
It's beautiful and strange, with its profoundly disturbing ambient sound design of industrial groaning, as if filmed inside some collapsing factory or gigantic dying organism.Fernando F. Croce CinePassionOctober 14, 2014
David Lynch never explains because he doesn't need to, his is the faith of the irrational, disconcertingly childlike in its illusionism.Jason Solomons Observer (UK)October 14, 2014
David Lynch's Eraserhead must stand as a pinnacle of screen surrealism to rival Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou.
