The story of the grotesquely deformed John Merrick (John Hurt), rescued from fairground exploitation by an eminent surgeon (Anthony Hopkins) in London in the 1880s, and his incarceration and subsequent lionisation by polite society. The nightmarish evocation of London transformed by the industrial revolution is pure David Lynch: a surreal, smoky steam-powered Metropolis, humming to the sound of hidden generators serviced by sullen and brutalised workers. Superb monochrome photography by Freddie Francis.
