The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man ★★★★★

James Whale is firmly entrenched in my Pantheon of favorite filmmakers, stylish, sassy, idiosyncratic, and never taking himself too seriously. THE INVISIBLE MAN (which, if we're to believe GODS & MONSTERS, is Whale's favorite of his own works) exemplifies all this. And it all works -- amazingly -- because our protagonist is such a gigantic, unapologetic prick. Mass murder has never been so fun.
