"I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!"

Based on a true story, The Elephant Man is a drama that unconditionally blew me away.

The film is a dramatisation of the life of Englishman Joseph Merrick (Hurt), known as John in the film, who was born with a grotesque physical deformity. Due to the nature and severity of the man's malformat... read more

A heartbreaking and beautiful true story.

First of all, I must say that you really need to have a very strong stomach to watch The Elephant Man; not so much because of Merrick's deformity but what had happened to him, what does happen to him and when we explore his past and who he really is, you need to be brave and watch this. I have seen many films in my time but this is the one film where I have felt almost incredibly sick because of t... read more

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Beautifully filmed in black and white making the make-up and sets feel realistic. David Lynch's use of surrealism and disturbing imagery is still present even if this is his most accessible film. John Hurt manage to show his talent even through heavy make-up and Anthony Hopkins make his boring character interesting and likeable long before he had his break-through. The Downs: That most people will not learn anything from this movie but stand squeamish and react like 99% of the people"
