THE GRANDMOTHER
September 30, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 4:00 a.m. ET

 

And seven years before filming Eraserhead, David Lynch wrote and directed this even more surrealistic and disturbing 1970 short movie, called The Grandmother. It’s about a young boy with abusive parents who seeks, and finds, an unusual form of emotional refuge: He sprouts seeds which mature into a loving, supportive grandmother.
