"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

Probably never has been a better movie to illustrate man's inhumanity to man. John Hurt never ceases to amaze me.

Based on the true story of Joseph Merrick, a 19th-century Englishman afflicted with a disfiguring congenital disease. With the help of kindly Dr. Frederick Treves, Merrick attempts to regain the dignity he lost after years spent as a side-show freak.

“I introduced this movie to my 18 year old daughter last night and was gratified to see her cry at the same bits as I did.

It is such a brilliantly performed and well crafted movie that brings out the range of humanity and inhumanity and perfectly reflects the truism that people fear, hate and attack what those they do not understand. It also typifies the way that people use misfortune for entertainment - a trait that keeps the tabloid press in business.

Marvellous performances from John Hurt, Anthony Hopkins and John Gielgud as you would expect from British actors who perfected their craft on the stage. Great support from the ensemble.

David Lynch made a marvellous job of crafting atmosphere and emotion. How did this film not win Oscars - how on earth could it” read more
