Eraserhead is incredibly difficult to dissect, possibly even more so than most Lynch films. It's challenging to put thoughts into words since there are so many possible interpretations of the dark, psychological horror on display. It's mystical, completely distinct, and many people may regard it as meaningless, but I completely disagree.
I believe that Eraserhead effectively conveys a person's many instances of powerlessness and misery. Whether it be problems with sexuality, relationships, parenthood, mortality, or even the disconnect caused by…
Arguably Wes Anderson’s most profound work to date. A nihilistic dismemberment of traditions and a soulful exploration of art forms. As usual with Wes’ work, the production design is jaw-dropping, and it’s full of powerful imagery. My main previous complaint about some of his previous work, particularly The French Dispatch, was the lack of emotional weight—as if the emotion had been sacrificed to put the sole focus on visual storytelling.

I'm all for reviving female-driven low-brow comedies from the 2000s. And I was really looking forward to this, especially because I thought Seligman's debut 'Shiva Baby' was brilliant. Unfortunately, this attempt fell short for me. I just don't think it was all that funny? And certainly not technically proficient, to the point that it almost felt amateurish at times.

A depiction of the dangers that come with having an authoritarian grip on not only your children, but also your loved ones, in the most abstract and depraved way. In addition, the film makes explicit allusion to Greece's military right-wing rule of the time. It ultimately rejects clear-cut explanations and drives you right into the deep end. I'm still puzzled by much of it, but it's something I'll think about further. Surprisingly, I'd like to watch it again to pick up on the details that I've inevitably missed. Double feature with 'Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom' for ultimate discomfort!
