Note: This is the introduction to a paper on David Lynch and Erasurehead written for an Independent Film class at the University of Pittsburgh. I wasn’t very fond of Mr. Lynch at the time and I’m not exactly his biggest fan today. That said, I no longer stand behind the somewhat vitriolic opinions expressed here. This excerpt is intended only as a demonstration of my writing ability. -A.P.

David Lynch and the Inescapable Cult of Eraserhead
David Lynch has been something of a scourge in my life. He’s a very popular director among my age group. Consequently, I’ve seen all his films more than once (excepting Straight Story, which I’ve never seen) and usually against my will. My friends are astonished at my inability to appreciate his trippy, dark sensibility. While I’ve got nothing against dark sensibilities, I definitely have a problem with being fed a load of bull, which is—let’s face it—what Lynch is most adept at serving up.
