Lynch's powerful depiction of Merrick (played by John Hurt) moves a viewer from revulsion and fear to empathy and tenderness. That's the very movement of the story itself.

I kept asking myself what the film was really trying to say about the human condition as reflected by John Merrick, and I kept drawing blanks.

Heartbreaking drama isn't for sensitive viewers.

...at its best when the story and period trappings serve Lynch's vision, and vice versa.

This is a tale of redemption and transcendence, of the hunchback of London Hospital, of the noble phantom who wanted to go to the opera, of Beauty and the Beast.

Director David Lynch has created an eerily compelling atmosphere in recounting a hideously deformed man's perilous life in Victorian England.

Lynch shows a weakness in this film that isn't present in just about any of his others: Sentimentality.

The picture itself is a strange trade-off between Lynch's personal themes -- the night world of obscure, disturbing sexual obsessions -- and the requirements of a middlebrow message movie.

This stylish, poignant drama is probably the closest director David Lynch has got to the mainstream outside of the disastrous Dune.

A marvellous movie, shot in stunning black-and-white by Freddie Francis.
