It’s spooky season and in this week’s episode we’re discussing David Lynch’s nightmarish cult classic Eraserhead (1977). As a filmmaker, Lynch is notorious for his experimental style, part of which is of course his at times cryptic and not always easy to decode use of visual metaphor, diegetic music, as well as a unique symbolism recurrent throughout most of Lynch’s filmography. We’ll walk you through the movie’s plot, interpreting it to the best of our abilities and with a special emphasis on the film’s main theme: the tension between sexual desires and the horror of fatherhood as experienced through the interior view of the main character.
