Treasures from the Yale Film Archive: Gods and Monsters
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 Korean War veteran employed as his gardener. As Anthony Lane observed, “Few films have made it seem so natural to be haunted.”
Presented in 35mm by the Yale Film Archive with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
