The Elephant Man
Directed by David Lynch
Starring Anthony Hopkins,
John Hurt
Mayflower Theatre
The Elephant Man will not be
a popular movie
It's a film that will make the
me-generation take a look at
ugliness and cringe — not at the
ugliness, but at the way we deal
with it. Light moments are few;
it’s deliberately somber in
mood, made more so by the
black and white cinematog
The setting is Victorian Lon
don. A young doctor, Frederick
Treves (Anthony Hopkins) finds
a creature at a circus that
arouses his scientific curiosity;
a man so deformed by a prena
tal accident that people shrink
with revulsion at the sight of
him. Billed as “The Elephant
Man” in a freak show, he makes
his owner a meager living until
Treves begins to study him.
After their first meeting, Treves
says, “I pray to God he’s an
idiot.” But he’s not. He's John
Merrick (John Hurt), not an
“Elephant Man,” but a cultured,
sensitive human being
Presumably, the purpose of
the film is to create a feeling for
this “disgusting spectacle of
humanity” as Treves calls him.
In this it succeeds. Merrick is by
far the most interesting char
acter, for two reasons; he’s an
ugly curiosity and the other
people in the movie are pretty
A strong feeling is generated
in the audience, but the feeling
boils down to sympathy for a
freak; the guy’s had a rough life
His beautiful mother died when
he was young, he was enslaved
by a lecherous fiend who beat
and humiliated him. And he's
uglier than Godzilla We feel
sorry for him which i something
of a downfall for the film.
We never really get to know
John Merrick. We see him in
extremely humiliating and
dehumanizing situations, and
we see him react. But what does
he think about it, what does he
feel? When Treves’ hospital
takes Merrick into its care, he
tells the people they’ve been
very kind. No kidding? When he
meets Treves’ wife for the first
time, he breaks into tears at
being “treated so well by a
beautiful woman." He’s ob
viously a lonely man. How has
he dealt with that all his life?
How does he feel when he looks
in the mirror?
We don’t know.
What we do see is the way he
deals with Treves and the others
who treat him well and become
his friends. We see what a dif
ference it makes for him to have
a good self-image through the
eyes of these friends. We see
that being able to say “I know
that I am loved” is to say I can
enjoy life no matter what I look
The Elephant Man leaves
many questions unanswered,
and the use of montage tech
nique is sometimes confusing
But it’s definitely interesting,
and nicely crafted. It’s an unu
sual film — not always nice to
look at — which is very consis
tent with its content.
—The staff box—
Somehow it's already Wed and Bender
and I are still up here at the Emerald. Sigh
To avoid this in the future, please get your
information for the calendar, your stories
and/or photos to my desk (in the corner
where it says Entertainment) or in my box
by 5 p m on Thursdays one week prior to
the date of publication Oh, that
reminds me, I'm searching for a new
name got any ideas? Write them in.
Better tie this up: Brett Bender, nice guy
that he is, stayed pleasantly late to copyedit
all the stories (THANK YOU, BRETTCO);
Ken Sands played with his car, and in
between brake pads coded and helped with
layout (THANK YOU. KEN! Hoorah.) Sandy,
in production and the crew back there are
always patient with us lackeys (THANK
YOU, TEAM); and I (mhmm, Erzsi De'ak,
Entertainment Editor) am trying to be
patient with late stories and photos. Tra lah
