is the 1977 surrealist horror film written and directed by American filmmaker David Lynch. Filmed in black-and-white, Eraserhead is David Lynch’s first feature-length film, after several short works. This iconic film was produced with the assistance of the American Film Institute (AFI) during the director’s time studying there. Starring Jack Nance, Charlotte Stewart, Jeanne Bates, Judith Anna Roberts, Laurel Near, and Jack Fisk, it’s the story of Henry Spencer (Nance), who is left to care for his grossly deformed child in a desolate industrial landscape. Throughout the film, Spencer experiences dreams or hallucinations, featuring his child and the Lady in the Radiator (Near). This film is a must-watch.
