The Elephant Man

Director: David Lynch Run Time: 124 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 1980

Starring: Anne Bancroft, Anthony Hopkins, John Gielgud, John Hurt, Wendy Hiller

Lynch went austere early on for a period drama about a fascinating person with a very specific health issue. A most human look at John (Joseph) Merrick and at the carnival/spectacle we all expect and demand all the goddamn time. Respect, my friends, I think that was all he was asking for.
