The Elephant Man

4

David Lynch transforms the story of the horribly deformed John Merrick (a latex-coated John Hurt) into an emotion-tweaking drama of friendship and compassion. The playing is finely judged, the black-and-white cinematography is effective and the whole thing manages to be truly moving in a way that overcomes all the "I am not an animal!" schmaltz.
