    An American Werewolf in London

    ★★★★★

    “I’m certain if there were a monster roaming around Northern England, we’d have seen it on the telly.”


    This was one of the very first movies I saw on VHS. And I am deeply and eternally in love with it ever since. Watched it literally dozens of times.

    With such an emotional attachment, it is difficult to identify why American Werewolf is one of my favorite films, if not THE one. And the best werewolf film ever. No discussion accepted…

    "He fell off a fence." - "You nearly took a leg off, I got a dislocated shoulder..." - "And he gets the ice." - "Yeah. Come on. I'll buy you a nice warm drink."

    I know that from today's perspective, the hunting and capture of animals for zoos may look incorrect. Taken this aspect aside, this is one of my favorite films.

    I have just returned from a photo safari to Kenya and Tanzania (Mar 2019) and vowed during the…

    ”Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.”

    Well constructed, well acted, intelligent story.

    ”You too slow. You’re a dullard?”

    Simple and effective. Threat all around. Deep dive into characters and souls. And that foghorn would have driven me crazy on day 2.

    “I was there to push people beyond what is expected of them.”

    Intense. A good, intense study of two men, well, what? Fighting? Struggling to become better? Developing? Hell, I do not envy the students. I am not ok with a teacher driving students like that with personal, emotional insult. Whatever the results. But on film, the dialogues, monologues and abuses are a hit.

    A very good film, and that with me having no love and appreciation for jazz at all. Great shots.

    And it is good to see Miles Teller in a decent role at least this one time.

    „Doodle let me go.“

    Amazing use of light, shadow, sound of nature, great actors, making an unusual but fascinating piece of work. 

    If you liked „The Witch“, you‘ll like this one. 

    I almost forgot how good Mr Dafoe can be in a menacing, sinister role. And Mr Pattinson has outgrown the shiny vampire status for sure, a good thing. 

    A descent into madness and the pits of the human mind.
