The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man ★★★★★

Who else but James Whale and his macabre mind as a better candidate for adapting such a gracious and controversial science-fiction classic? The most immediate reaction it may build in the viewer is the sensation of: "What would I do if I became invisible?" This accurate and visibly-outstanding portrayal of the concept by H.G. Wells represents it as a scary idea. Existential, personal doom because of an experiment that went wrong results in disastrous outcomes. Atmospherically original and visually brilliant, technically a landmark movie.

97/100
