1968 / 149min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: STANLEY KUBRICK

CAST: KEIR DULLEAN, GARY LOCKWOOD, WILLIAM SYLVESTER, LEONARD ROSSITER

A mind-bending, epoch-hopping opus that set the bar for philosophical, historical, and cinematic ambition. Without Kubrick’s masterpiece, it’s impossible to imagine the grand design of Twin Peaks: The Return, situating their human-scale stories within a framework as large as the universe itself. A campus circuit phenomenon which motivated multiple viewings, and considered best enjoyed with chemical assistance (“The Ultimate Trip”), 2001 laid the foundation for the soon-to-be-named Midnight Movie, which Eraserhead would come to define.
