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.
