" Kubrick paid the most beautiful homage... One day, fellows
of Lucas Films came to see me and said to me that Stanley had shown
them his preferred film... It was Eraserhead! "
It is during its studies of audio-visual with the AFI in Beverley
Hills that David Lynch will carry out his first full-length film.
Right before he tried to develop a medium-length film called "
Gardenback ", but the AFI gave him a purse of five thousand
dollars to carry out his first film: Eraserhead. It is at the beginning
of the year 1972 that the team of turning puts itself at work, script
making only one score of pages, turning will nevertheless have lasted
The realization of this film being more serious, the decorations
are to it also... Several parts of the establishment having fallen
in full disuse, David monopolizes them. Moreover several of these
parts will be useful for other places in film, and David will benefit
from it to make his own room! The film comes out on March 19, 1977.
It causes a vast polemic in the film enthusiasts going from nausea
to aplauses. The film being too long for David, this one cuts more
than twenty minutes, thus the versions sold in the trade is only
a short version of original work.
