I'd love to get this DVD, but right now I can't justify spending so much on one movie  :(

how can you put a price on love?

I've had my eraserhead DVD for a year now and it now does not play at all. It's dead.

Lynch took advantage of me.

That should be on the marquee.

Eraserhead and Short Films get wide DVD release Jan. 10, 2006

Fangoria.com is reporting that Subversive Cinema is now the distributor for Lynch's Short Films and Eraserhead DVDs. You can still get them from dl.com, but this also means you'll be able to find them in stores as well. The disc content themselves will be the same, but you won't get the booklets or the larger boxes. Both have a suggested retail price of $29.95.

i was just hoping to get these for christmas (again, since i didnt get them last year).  but now i'm wondering if it's worth it to go through dl.com or just get them in stores?  i guess i wont be saving any money and theres no point in paying for a nice box (to me).  dilemma?

depends on how  much you liked eraserhead...if you go the dl.com route you get a big ole box, a nice 4-6 page booklet,and an interesting way to package a dvd...looks like a 45 record sleeve

it's showing in Dallas next week - a new 35 mm print.
anyone seen this print?

i have yet to see the film at all, so i guess that would be an interest way to first experience it.

There's a new 35mm print of Eraserhead playing tomorrow and Tuesday at the Castro, too.  I'll be seeing it Tuesday night and can report back on its quality if you'd like.

tell me this, is this Lynch with actually human sounding dialog or like The Grandmother where the voices are distorted like dogs - or anything like that - way ouuutttt there Lynch - if that even makes sense?

I ask because I may try to get someone else to go. I got him into watching Wes Anderson films and stuff like that, but I could see him making snide remarks, possibly ruining the theatre experience, if it's more experimental - like some of the Lynch shorts I've seen.

Dallas is a 2 hr drive, but I also have a free Darjeeling Limited soundtrack to pick up there I won through an e-mail contest, so I would have more of an incentive to go and kill two birds with one stone. (The same theatre showed Clockwork for this week's midnight film).

more experimental

Yes! This is the first david lynch film I saw and I still think it is my favorite just because of the experience in the theater. The low rumble that rolls through the soundtrack of the entire film is a trademark for any lynch movie but here it is unrelenting and it adds to the literal and figurative feeling of the movie. The theater I was in had an awesome sound system and the intense bass and various noise combined with the striking and often graphic images on screen made for a pretty disturbing yet wonderful experience. I think your friend might find it a little intense if you're hardening him up with wes anderson movies. And the plot is there but it takes a back seat to the visuals. Still, go fucking see it.
