not just like, a two hour music video, but

My buddy came over the other night and we watched like a real movie, but then it was late and the busses had stopped running and we had to find something to do until like 5am when they started running again. So he found this movie and was like "Hey lets watch this s--t" and I was all, "Ok, but it's pretty much just like a two hour music video," which is how I remembered it being, and then we watched it and I totally stand by that evaluation. Also, the last time I watched this movie I had to turn it off because the person I watched it with had a seeing-blood-thing, and oh man do you see some blood in this movie. Jesus. Also you have to look at David Bowie in old man makeup for way too long.

And not just like, a two hour music video, but a two hour *early eighties* music video. Like, you know those music videos where it just feels like it's a fashion shoot, but instead of taking pictures they just film some woman in an empty room wearing something weird with like sheets blowing in the background? Like that. But like a movie. Also monkeys screaming over and over and over.

a feature-length Gothic music video

not your standard Hollywood fare, this is primarily a visual and auditory experience, a feature-film-length music video; the plot is a secondary feature

every scene in this movie is a work of art, a carefully-composed moving photograph to accompany an eclectic mix of sound, from melancholic piano and string-instrumentation to percussive noise with choral vocalising, to suspenseful Carpenter-esque synth

the atmosphere is pure gloom. the film should win an award for most depressing vampire film ever. i had to take a shower after i watched it to clear my mind and wash away the melancholy

Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon are great, as are their boobs; i've never particularly cared for David Bowie, but fans might enjoy watching him sulk through the first half of the film. the pacing is rather slow but fits the mood; the story, based on an a novel by Whitley Strieber, maintains my interest until the ending, which features some really cool make-up art and is left open to interpretation

ultimately it's an artsy cult film that i appreciate but understandably will not be everyone's cup of sherry

I've no appetite for this.

The Hunger starts off as a bad '80s music video for post-punk band Bauhaus, who perform their song Bela Lugosi's Dead in a nightclub amidst lots of blue light and smoke, after which director Tony Scott settles for a soporific avant garde/art-house style to tell his dreary story of a vampire, Miriam Blaylock (Catherine Deneuve), whose lovers eventually succumb to rapid ageing and death, despite her promise of eternal youth. David Bowie plays John, the latest of Miriam's partners to grow old and die before her eyes, and Susan Sarandon is doctor Sarah Roberts, who finds herself with a hunger for blood after a lesbian fling with the vampire.

Repetitive intercutting of scenes, lots of billowing curtains, people smoking cigarettes, more fluttering pigeons/doves than a John Woo film, and classical music: chic and stylish is what Scott is clearly aiming for; boring and pretentious is what he delivers.

A pitiful 1/10, despite Deneuve and Sarandon's sexy scene, and some excellent old-age make-up by industry legend Dick Smith.
