Eraserhead
David Lynch, USA, 1977, 89 min


‘Eraserhead is my most spiritual movie. No one understands when I say that, but it is.’ He went on to write about the difficulties he was having making sense of the way the film was “growing” and didn’t know ‘the thing that just pulled it all together.’ He then reveals it was the Bible that provided the solution:


‘So I got out my Bible and I started reading. And one day, I read a sentence. And I closed the Bible, because that was it; that was it. And then I saw the thing as a whole. And it fulfilled this vision for me, 100 percent.’WIKI
