The Company of Wolves
DIRECTOR: NEIL JORDAN
CAST: ANGELA LANSBURY, DAVID WARNER, GRAHAM CROWDEN, BRIAN GLOVER
Jordan’s juicy Gothic fantasy is a fractured fairy tale sprung from the short stories of Angela Carter, visualizing the macabre, often erotic, and always astonishing dreams of a disturbed adolescent girl, whose fevered visions include the landscape of production designer Anton Furst’s magic forest, marvelous lycanthropic transformations done via old-school analog effects, and a certain uncredited actor in the role of the Devil himself.
The Company of Wolves is screening as part of the series Terence Stamp.
