Film Recommendation by Alysia Fae Klein(Film & Media Arts Professor)
She said “it was difficult to choose only three films as there are so many films that inspire me as a filmmaker. If I were in film school today, I would be certain to watch these three.”
1.Eraserhead (Dir. David Lynch, 1977): The man named Henry who lives in a dark apartment has a pregnant girlfriend. After a few days later, a deformed child was born and he gets shocked. In his dirty and gloomy apartment, he and his girlfriend take care their baby but it does not work well. Also, a woman who is a neighbor of Henry tries to attract him. “This film because of its design. With an unsettling atmosphere and dream-like sequences, Eraserhead takes the audience on a journey through the unconscious mind. The visuals are stunning, the story is strange, and I cannot get enough. I could watch this film”
Watch out for sequels to this articles!!!
