As moving as it is frustrating. Given the bipolar nature of the titular character, this might seem perfectly appropriate. Ang Lee's knack for tackling domestic drama and repressed characters is nonetheless undermined with unintentional camp by its kitschy editing style. The use of comic panels to gloss up the content suggests that in 2003, filmmakers still doubted how much they could elevate the genre.
"Desire" list. Mr. Hyde is the green monster that afflicts all, Dr. Jekyll is the beautiful Eric Bana, one of the rare contemporary actors who carries - as a transfert - the facial dimension of classical actors - see Charles Farrell. In this film, by far the best of Ang Lee, due to the mutations that is constantly subjected, Bana is regularly naked and the least that can be said is "sacrosanct" mutation.
Hugely underappreciated. Ang Lee gave us a Hulk that works brilliantly when it works, and is a little bit silly when it doesn't. The character work for a comic book film is top notch and it's miles better than the 2008 incarnation which was nothing more than Hulk SMASH. That, and the music is just fantastic.
