    Entrails of a Beautiful Woman

    ★★½

    [Update - Just realised this was the 5000th film I logged on LB. So glad this was also a Hooptober watch. And the 2nd title I've logged containing the word 'entrails']

    Film #13 from my list for Hoop-Tober 3.0 challenge.

    I have never found cinematic adaptations of Frankenstein particularly engaging or inspiring. A classic ‘monster movie’? Absolutely. A profound and richly complex exploration of humanity and the human condition? Not so much.

    That is until now.

    This modern day interpretation by Bernard Rose is truly outstanding and I urge you to see it.

    To be honest, with more than 50 Frankenstein adaptations already available, I would almost certainly have given this…
