Any time someone alludes to loving being a cop, the film proves that love as absolutely insane. Completely unsentimental.
Peter Cushing plays Dr. Frankenstein as pure monster, an arrogant misogynist thief/ murderer/rapist in his best and most charismatically evil role at Hammer. As I work through these films I'm consistently stunned at Cushing's range and ability to transform the silliest lines into maniacal musings or deeply mournful monologues. Also loving the bizarre Hammer trend of ending a film seemingly a beat too early.
