I think it is one of those 'you had to be there' at the moment it came out and see it films otherwise you just don't appreciate how important and different it was.

For me Elephant Man has everything that was good or different about it anyways so I don't even bother trying to watch it anymore as I just don't like it.

Apparently, Lynch's shorts might come first.
Thanks for the great feedback. I'm definitely going to keep this on watchlist.

I think the two share more in common than a hairdo. I always thought Barton Fink was the Coen bros affectionately aping Lynch... It's definitely their oddest, most enigmatic, and dreamlike film.

I got the same recommendation, surprised me too. Then I added more to my list and the recommendations went from spot on to absurd

And a personal favorite of mine. While you do make a good point there...I also don't think netflix's algorithms are that good either

I saw it once, theatrically, on a double bill with Freaks. I've never forgotten it . . . or had the desire to see it again. Interesting, unique, but not my cup of tea

On the other hand I bought a copy of Freaks.

Just got done watching my import blu of Eraserhead with a friend (http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Eraser...4251/#Overview). She thanked me in advance for the nightmares she's bound to have this weekend.

Figured now was the perfect time to come find this thread again, and see if there was any updated news on the CC release. Sadly no.

I REALLY hope Criterion finds the uncut version of Freaks and releases it. It's such an underrated film that was decades ahead of its time.

I bought Lynch's own box set DVD release of Eraserhead 2000 years ago and can totally understand his hesitation of letting someone else release this on BD. It was clear from his DVD release, that this movie was a kind of obsession with him and a deeply personal project. The extras on this release has a great documentary and another piece which was a Lynch monologue that are priceless. They explain a lot about his creative process and how this film launched his career. The disk even had a video calibration section to help adjust your television's black levels and contrast. I'm sure Lynch will have a lot of input on this release, but in this case, it's a good thing. I'll be patient because I think this could well be Criterion's release of the year.

If anyone has viewed Eraserhead more than once, I strongly advise them to see a therapist.

Lynch is a sick ****.
Most films that I find good I don't want to experience again.

If by sick **** you mean genius, then yes, I concur

and yes, I've watched Eraserhead more than once

How about if you've seen it twice, including in a theater?

Recently re-watched the Eraserhead 2000 DVD; I've seen the film numerous times over the years, the first was on a VHS tape in the '90's.

Definitely Lynch's most *&^%#-up film...The image of the grotesque creature lying on the counter & coughing while a humidifier blows steam into the air is one of the most bizzare things I've ever seen in a film..Also quite disturbed by the deformed woman w/the puffed-out cheekbones...

Here's to hoping that Criterion actually does end up releasing this. Maybe they'll end up releasing it around Halloween or something. Great, albeit disturbing, film!

I dunno, I think it makes a ton of sense.
