An absurdist comedy short starring David Lynch and his son, Austin, who play two bizarre, high pitched characters with a very unique way with words. They encounter a large, destructive human figure referred to as "The Neighbor Boy".
Back in the day David Lynch was releasing several of his films onto DVD through himself and this "documentary' was produced to go along with the release of ERASERHEAD. I'm not sure if documentary is the correct word to use but we've basically got Lynch talking about how the film got made and how it eventually became a cult favorite.
We start off with Lynch talking about his film school, his grant through the AFI and then how he ended up leaving film school. From here we get into the production of ERASERHEAD and we pretty much go through every aspect of its production. We hear some pretty bizarre stories throughout including one dealing with the legendary director buying a dead cat to explore. Some of the best stuff comes towards the end when Lynch talks about a failed Cannes screening as well as the film becoming a favorite on the midnight circle.
