A scene from 'Eraserhead' (1976)

directed by David Lynch

One of my favorite scenes from David Lynch's debut film 'Eraserhead' (1976). If you like this video and haven't seen this movie, you should definitely do it right away. This scene defines a lot of Lynch's later work. In most of his movies there is someone singing a dreamy peaceful song that contrasts with the heavy imagery. Lynch also includes a lot of curtains and drapes in many of his films as well as his TV show, Twin Peaks. The pace and mood of this scene is used in other of his movies to break with the chaotic sequences of the movie.
