Film #96: Eraserhead (1977)
Plot - Good. It does some weird stuff.
Form - Good. It does some weird stuff.
F/X - Nice baby, organ removal, having sex in craters, moon's exploding, fun.
Acting - Jack Nance is absolutely amazing. I like watching David Lynch films just because he's in them.
Mise en scene - The main focus of the production. Gorgeous decaying sets.
Quotables - A really great song in the middle.
Cool stuff - Some scenes are just too artsy for their own good, but you never get the feeling it's malicious or attempting to insult the viewer like future Lynch "epics" Wild At Heart and Lost Highway.
