19. Eraserhead (1977 – David Lynch)
Some fans claim this is the legendary David Lynch’s best work – though it may fall short of some of his later projects regarding screenplay and visuals. However, this hauntingly beautiful story set in an industrial wasteland perfectly walks the line between bizarre and poignant. The film revolves around a father’s attempts to care for his sick child, which, portrayed as an abomination, still compels the audience. This is a story of peculiar bonds, hallucinations and strange imagery that hint towards insanity while tugging at our heart strings.
