"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.

"The make-up John Hurt had to wear was extremely heavy. As a result, one day when he decided to take a nap, he almost suffocated to death."

"8.11 En ole Lynchiltä nähnyt tätä ennen yhtään elokuvaa, lukuunottamatta Eraserheadia ja tämä on tosiaan aivan täysin eri maailmasta. Elokuvassa on selkeä tarina ja vaikka symboliikkaa löytyykin, se ei silti sekoita katsojan päätä ja tarinaa on todella helppo seurata. Mustavalkoisuus toimii elokuvassa hienosti ja korostaa tätä suhteellisen kylmää maailmaa missä elämme, mistä löytyy kuitenkin paljon hyvääkin, vaikka motiiveja kyseenalaistaisikin. Henkilöhahmot ovat hyvin"

"28.09.2012 "I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!" This was a fantastic film. It had me hooked from the very beginning all the way to the end. The direction by David Lynch was just so great. Every singe scene in the film was just so stunning. The actors were also all perfect. John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins both gave some of the greatest performances of their careers. This is also one of the best looking blu-ray movies i have ever seen. There was no grain on"

50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

" The Untruth: Abused as a circus freak because to his severe deformities John Merrick proves himself to be a polite and gentle man who is human and needs to be loved, just like everybody else does. “You’ve all been so kind” – John Merrick. The Truth: Joseph (not John) Merrick was making money from his freak show work, and his deformity was such that he found it extremely difficult to talk. “Yooveallbensokind” – Joseph Merrick. "
