Movie Diary 1/29/2014

Eraserhead (David Lynch, 1977). The terror of living in the world, rendered in Lynch’s precise way. This is a film that came at the end of a movie-watching era; that is, before it became possible to own movies, and thus have the power to stop and start them whenever you liked. It loses a little something at home, but still has the power to spellbind. (Speaking of which, you have to love that the DVD comes with instructions on how to adjust your television set so that the “brightness” level isn’t set too high. Lynch will have to update that for smart TVs that want to make everything you watch look like 48 frames per second.)
