One of my Christmas presents was a DVD of 'Eraserhead'. I have not seen this for some years and this time I was struck by the influence of Laurel & Hardy and 2001 Space Odyssey - with elements of Hitchcock...

And the stage scene prefiguring Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive...

and the whole film prefiguring Barton Fink & The Naked Lunch.


And it was explained to me for the first time (by someone watching it with me), why it is called 'Eraserhead'! Surprised how I had missed this before.

Hope you got something more Christmassy for Christmas!?
