90 Minutes Or Less Film Fest

Eraserhead with Craig Roberts

Listen on

Episode notes

Sam Clements is curating a fictional film festival. He'll accept almost anything, but the movie must not be longer than 90 minutes. This is the 90 Minutes Or Less Film Fest podcast.

In episode 78 Sam is joined by Craig Roberts, director of The Phantom Of The Open starring Mark Rylance and Sally Hawkins. 

Craig has chosen David Lynch's 1977 feature debut Eraserhead (89 minutes). Shot over five years, the film stars Jack Nance, Charlotte Stewart, Jeanne Bates, Judith Anna Roberts, Laurel Near, and Jack Fisk

Sam and Craig discuss the direct influence David Lynch has had on Craig's filmmaking, Eraserhead's haunting sound design and attempt to work out the meaning of the movie. 

The Phantom Of The Open is in cinemas now.
