Jack Nance plays a man who initially orbits the earth, until out of his mouth is born a mutant child, and later, in the suburbs with his reluctant partner, over a meal of man-made chicken that wriggles as they eat…Yes, this is the first feature in the oeuvre of David Lynch: surrealist, exasperating, dazzling, thought-provoking, unsettling, about creativity and the fear of babies and the human imagination and maybe the director’s ego - like the work of no-one else.


open_quote One of those rare films that really deserves its cult status ... a nightmarish, heavily symbolic story set in a postapocalyptic future. close_quote Wendy Ide, The Times
