Demme’s cinema reached its apex with the wild, gorgeous and heart-wrenching “Beloved,” which you currently can’t buy on Blu-ray. Oprah gives her best performance as Toni Morrison’s beleaguered former slave Sethe, who lives with the scars White America stamped on every inch of her body and soul. Her earnestness is awe-inspiring. She’s just right.

Demme was no dummy: He knew he could never replicate the experience of reading Morrison’s prose, so he found a cinematic analogue in overt references to the horror genre, complete with special effects and elaborate atmospheric devices. And why not? Beloved, like most horror movies, is a story about the return of the repressed. I find the film, in its own curious way, as daring as the book.

It anchors the lyrical surrealism of Morrison’s novel in a brutal historical reality that only a good movie can provide. Demme’s skill as a filmmaker was to meet his subjects where they were. Few movies are better proof of that than Beloved, which would seem like a complete outlier in his canon but is, in fact, the consummation of everything that makes him worth remembering, studying, and falling in love with as a filmmaker.
