Since its release in 1977, David Lynch's "Eraserhead" has sparked many debates over its controversial content, imagery and symbolism. Many of them on what the story is all about. To one of its cast member Catherine E Coulson (future Log Lady in "Twin Peaks"), this was a love story. But for David Lynch, he wanted people to each have their own interpretations, therefore making the story a mystery as intriguing as "Mulholland Drive" and "Inland Empire", whose secrets he has refused to reveal although people like Naomi Watts have given a very consistent explanation I share. As for "Eraserhead", I do believe what Jennifer Lynch has said, that this movie concerns her father's fear of fatherhood and that she was the monstrous alien in the main character's building as she had clubbed feet at her birth. Which is ironic as I've heard many people describing the birth and first taking care of their child in the same way, as if they had appeared on another planet. And considering the main character's haircut is similar to David Lynch's, I do see a connection between the author and his hero.

Now though Lynch has refused to let his daughter's sole interpretation hamper everyone's opinions, I also think this movie is to Lynch what "The Blood of a Poet" is to Jean Cocteau. The opportunity for Lynch to put on film the thematics and preoccupations that would invade his artwork and future films.

An extraordinary film from a (then) fledgling director which actually made me feel queasy the first time I saw it. A must have film for any serious cinephile. Go to www.bluray.com for an in depth review and description of the exhaustive extras. The whole thing is mind-blowing.

4.0 out of 5 stars What to do about problems with this disc 25 Sept. 2014
By Andrea Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review to inform purchasers that there is a point in the disc around the 65 minute mark where the screen goes blank when it is supposed to show a reaction shot of Henry. The blank was in the print that they made the disc from and last about 5 seconds. This defect shows up in both the blu-ray and the DVD. Criterion is making replacement discs available. Email them at mulvaney@criterion.com and put ERASERHEAD REPLACEMENT in the subject. They will give you an address where you can mail your disc. They will send you a replacement disc and a $10 certificate that can be used at their on-line store.

Other than the problem with the discs, this is a great product that is up to the usual high standards of Criterion. The picture and sound are great. I haven't watched the extras so I cannot speak to their quality. I love this film and would be giving it a 5 star review if it wasn't for the problem with the discs. I think Criterion is handling it well although I wish they were getting the information out to everyone easier. There is nothing about this problem on their website.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of pure cinema art. 20 Sept. 2016
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Writer, director and producer David Lynch had already been experimenting in short films but with his first feature, Eraserhead, he showed the world of cinema a new way to see. After taking five years to complete with a release in 1977, Lynch took movie goers on a surreal and nocturnal odyssey of its character, the reserved and distant Henry (Jack Nance) as he struggles to come to terms with his newly born deformed baby. Inside this odd story is some of the most remarkable dream like imagery ever conceived. From the very bleak first frame, its oddness doesn’t let you go until its some might say a hopeful finale that still doesn’t come completely clear to the audience. Many could assume that the film thrives on how strange it is and Lynch himself has never been one to explain his work but weather that is the case or not, filmmaking would never be the same again. While it is routed in cult and almost horror like sensibilities, I don’t think it would be out of line to place it with the pure art of Buñuel, Fellini, Bergman or Kubrick. Lynch created another work that broke the mold of film just as those directors did and continued to do so with future works The Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986) and Mulholland Drive (2001) that even took his American surrealism approach to new levels of maturity and authenticity. As someone who feels that films should be about moments of true feeling rather than consistent logic and meaning, Lynch without a doubt lifts the mind’s eye to a new sense of wonder. Eraserhead is not for everyone and will never have a fixed critical reputation but for Lynch and all of the great artists of cinema, it’s probably for the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A World that People Should Experience 7 Mar. 2016
By Mark Le - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What is included with this DVD is just awesome. A little historical booklet explaining the creation of Eraserhead added more depth to this film. From watching this film from the first time, I just really enjoyed the atmosphere of this movie. At points it can be quite unsettling to watch and other times, it leaves you scratching your head. But, what makes a great movie great is the journey that it can take you and the questions that it leaves you at the end. This film is a piece that can be dissected in many ways which can lead to many discussions. Overall, I really enjoyed the story that was told in this film. Quite an interesting hole this film dragged me into, and I enjoyed every last bit of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Strange Weird Random Film 31 Dec. 2015
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I first saw this film on YouTube months and months ago. As strange and confusing this film is, I personally love it. I don't know why but I do. The people that add 1 star rating reviews saying they don't like it is really because its a random weird and strange film and they don't understand it, which I understand that but maybe this film shouldn't be understood in a sense. To be honest I didn't like it that much the first time I saw it but overtime I learned to appreciate and enjoy it. I recommend Eraserhead to those who like weird films.

5.0 out of 5 stars HD Eraserhead Baby 27 Mar. 2017
By Parker Goodner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
It's Eraserhead. It's a weird movie. If you feel like you get some sort of deep, philosophical meaning from it, then that's great, and I'm glad you do, but it's still a weird movie. Hey, I got something out of it, too.
But this is definitely the definitive version so far! The picture quality is great, and the sound is, too! The case and everything is very nice, just like all of the other criterion collection blu rays that I've purchased. If you like Eraserhead, or if you're into bizarre movies that don't make much sense at face value, then it's a must-have.
But seriously, seeing the baby in HD on my 4K TV was something I didn't know I needed until now.
