On the other hand, Brendan Fraser tries again to play something else than his usual morons but didn't really convince ... read more

One of the most brilliant, shocking films I have ever seen. What an experience seeing all the film's content, as well as the crazily convincing performance by Sir Ian McKellen.

Description: Based on Christopher Bram's novel FATHER OF FRANKENSTEIN, Bill Condon's semi-fictional 1998 sleeper stars Sir Ian McKellen in a fantastic performance as director James Whale (FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, SHOW BOAT).

"22.3, Netflix Vähän yllätyksenä tuli kun tätä rupesin katsomaan, että elokuva kertoo alkuperäisten Frankenstein ja Frankensteinin morsian leffojen ohjaajasta. Ian McKellenin esittää siis kyseistä ohjaajaa, James Whalea, joka ystävystyy Brendan Fraserin esittämän karskin puutarhirinsa kanssa.

" Now I'll be reminded of the Frankenstein silhouette every time I see a Brendan Fraser film. (There's a caption at the top of the end credits that says everything that needs to be said about how stupendous the acting is in Gods and Monsters.)"

"Bill Condon explores the final days of Frankenstein director James Whale (Ian McKellen), who develops a friendship with his ex-Marine gardener. A technical masterpiece, Condon’s film is a celebration of Whale’s life that ebbs with real passion."
