Bram Stoker’s Dracula is one of the most visually lush retellings of
the vampire legend ever committed to film! Director Francis Ford
Coppola rounds up an all-star cast starring a shape shifting Gary
Oldman and an utterly drinkable Winona Ryder. Plus! Anthony Hopkins,
Cary Elwes, and a not-too-terrible Keanu Reeves. Add to that
appearances by Tom Waits and Monica Bellucci, and you have yourself a
visual feast even without the clothes! The makeup and costuming here
are impeccable, all romantic velvets and tendrils of chestnut hair.
It’ll make you wish you lived forever in a dark castle with a thirst
for the blood of beautiful Winonas circa 1992. And, if you’re the
monocle-polishing type, you might also appreciate the fact that this
is arguably the most loyal interpretation of Stoker’s groundbreaking
novel out there.
