Not really a documentary, but still worth seeing.

There isn't that much to say about this. It's just David Lynch telling a lot of stories abut the five year long making of Eraserhead with short segments of a phone interview with Catherine Coulson who was an assistant on the film, and pictures and behind the scenes videos spliced in. So this really isn't the most striking thing to watch, but lynch has a lot of really good stories that he tells very well. He does tend to go off on a tangent several times, but still these stories are also very interesting. Overall this isn't really a documentary, More of an extended interview, but anyone who enjoyed watching Eraserhead should check this out.

Lots of interesting stories

Leave in to the ever-atypical David Lynch to make a strange and unconventional, but still engrossing and illuminating sort of retrospective documentary on the making of his debut feature "Eraserhead." Basically an extended interview with Lynch along with plenty of behind the scenes still and a few clips, among the things we learn are that Lynch got the idea for the movie from the industrial landscape in Philadelphia, lead actor Jack Nance was recommended by a friend (of course, we also get the straight dope on Nance's highly distinctive haircut), Lynch almost didn't cast Jeanne Bates because he thought she looked too beautiful, a scene with a nurse in a hospital basement that was never shot, a disastrous screening for Cannes, and how the picture eventually became a huge success on the midnight movie cinema circuit. By far some of the best anecdotes shared by Lynch pertain to cinematographer Herbert Cardwell, who sadly died in his sleep at the too young age of thirty-five. Lynch's stories about first arriving in Los Angeles and attending the American Film Institute are also cool and enjoyable to hear about while his dead cat anecdote rates as super freaky and alarming stuff. Worth a watch for fans of the film.
