  1. thebaus's rating of the film The Elephant Man

  2. Guillermo's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    Top Lynch even if it has just 3 typical Lynch scenes. Just like Balthasar the donkey, John Merrick is one of the saints of cinema. Be prepared to have your heart broken over and over again.

  3. ben's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    ★★★★½ A beautiful film, if oddly beautiful at that. The make-up and acting in the film are the real stars of the show, with both Anthony Hopkins and John hurt really bringing their best to the table. I see now why this is considered a classic, beautiful and heartbreaking throughout.

  4. Kamran S. Sehgal's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    This is the type of movie that people seem to love for its supposed feel-good content. Joseph Merrick is shown as someone suffering from a brutal physical condition but what does this all mean in the end? Are we supposed to leave the film feeling sorry for this 19th-century man? What we are left with is a saccharine attempt to create a biographical film that tells us nothing about this man and his actual condition.

  5. Salomé Giulia's rating of the film The Elephant Man

  6. Nicolò Musiani's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    Not so Lynchy on the outside but actually very much

  7. Matt's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    While much less strange and surreal as Lynch's usual work, this compassionate drama on a poorly treated individual is given with such refinement and care as well as being supported with fantastic cinematography and superb performances by Hurt and Hopkins.

  8. Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Elephant Man

    A beautiful film that excels in every department, with special mention to the sound design led by master Alan Splet and David Lynch himself, whose dense, multilayered and deeply evocative soundscapes are matched perfectly by the images on screen. I quite honestly say that Lynch lost an essential collaborator with the passing of Splet in 1994.

  9. Gallus's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    The makeup, cinematography, performances, discretion, and story are emotionally powerful, expertly crafted, and have so much care it hurts watching. You feel bad for the main leads, and want to see them succeed. It has common Lynchian tropes, but nothing too hard for viewers to know. The plot itself may not be the most cohesive or strong, but it wears its heart on its sleeve, and to me that’s all that matters.

  10. tubbssw's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    It is hard to see the appeal of this film dying. It has an excellent storyline, superb photography, realistic set designs, and brilliant casting decisions that stretch deep down through the supporting players.

  11. DebraM's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    A wonderfully moving historical drama that evokes the Gothic heart of Victorian England while examining otherness in a very late 20th century manner. Outstanding performances, editing and cinematography make this a memorable experience. It always moves me to tears - and I love it for that.

  12. Amritansh Sharma's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    Quite ostensibly the most gut-wrenching melodrama ever put on the silk-screen.

  13. cogncierge's rating of the film The Elephant Man

  14. Cal's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    What a lovely soul and lucky that his ugliness was only exterior :(

  15. nourkarimeddin's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    Lynch = perfect director, he humbly explains the genesis of the film here https://youtu.be/O6AoMU7Tsfs. I wish they had kept exactly to the facts of Merrick's life, 'actress Madge Kendal probably never met [Merrick] in person' (Wikipedia), was there a nasty night porter like Jim? Was the real life Mr. Bytes (showman Tom Norman) just as cruel? Did the lower classes treat Merrick worse than the upper classes? Classist?

  16. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    This is a rewatch. Historically speaking, THE ELEPHANT MAN had a lot of inaccuracies in its plot. But this is a movie. You can do whatever you want. David Lynch and friends understand this. So, they make it as EMOTIONAL as can be. You know what? They did it BEAUTIFULLY. Lynch - known for his surreal style - was able to give an emotional punch with his solid, yet stylistic direction. Damn it... I almost shed a tear...

  17. Vida's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    we are all THE ELEPHANT MAN and we taste it!

  18. Sam DiSalle's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    the first time i saw this, in 2013, i had to stop the film for almost half an hour to sob when merrick said the line about not being used to kindness. and then an additional fifteen minutes of crying a few minutes later, at the line about being a disappointment

  19. Antoine RL's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    L'exemple parfait d'une dramaturgie qui fait se compléter la figure de protagoniste et d'antagoniste. Merrick n'est rien sans Frederick Treves et vice-versa. Elephant Man est l'autopsie d'une élévation humaine.

  20. Andrea Greco's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    ★★★★★You will see it by hook or by crook

  21. Duarte Ferreira's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    It's deeply empathetic and moving, showcasing how art and the pureness of spirit persevere in the midst of a progressively dehumanized society. The way it deconstructs the hatred John Merrick suffers in regards to the different social classes felt like it was a totally unexpected angle to approach this from, but it really does add to the sinister tides underlying the more sentimental notes Lynch ends up playing with.

  22. gennardone's rating of the film The Elephant Man

  23. Ghostman's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    One of the great tearjerkers.

  24. Pedro Ferreira's rating of the film The Elephant Man

    Um filme surpreendente vindo de David Lynch. Um pouco sentimental, um pouco meloso, mas funciona muito bem.
