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.
