Gods and Monsters (Bill Condon, 1998, 105 mins)
Ian McKellen, Brendan Fraser, and Lynn Redgrave star in “an engrossing, unusual, imaginatively executed bit of psychological gamesmanship” (Dennis Harvey) that muses on the last days of Frankenstein director James Whale and his burgeoning bond with the former Marine employed as his gardener. As Anthony Lane observed, “Few films have made it seem so natural to be haunted.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.
