Nominated for eight Oscars, David Lynch’s monochrome homage to nineteenth century urban gothic tells the tale of Joseph Merrick, a man with serious deformities exhibited as a ‘freak’ in Victorian London. With breath-taking cinematography and outstanding performances by John Hurt – supported by a range of stars from British and American cinema including John Gielgud, Anne Bancroft and Wendy Hiller – The Elephant Man raises interesting questions about society’s ‘casting off’ of those perceived as different, about the human body and about the ethics of modern societies.
