One of the first films (in addition to Star Wars, Grease and Cabaret) I viscerally remember as a child. The heart and soul that John Hurt breathes into his portrayal of John Merrick blends all the better with Lynch's noir cinematography and Hopkins stoic, good doctor. A beautiful, horror of one man's life - who perhaps is more perfectly human than any one of those oppressors who so mercilessly try and keep him down. And yet, he rises above achieving as normal a life as he could hope for, realizing dreams and touching lives until he relinquishes himself to the belief that to die happy is better than to wait for a sadder tomorrow. This captivating black and white film inspired me at a young age to overcome any personal obstacles I felt could ever be responsible for holding me back from the life I wanted to lead, for no obstacle could be as trying as having the physical deformities of The Elephant Man.

Editorial Reviews

Import PAL./Region 2 DVD. Out-of-print in the US. David Lynch brings his own dreamlike style to the heartbreaking yet somehow uplifting story of John Merrick (John Hurt), a hideously deformed individual dubbed the Elephant Man during his years in a circus freak show in Victorian England. After suffering for years at the hands of his circus "master," the eloquent, soft spoken Merrick is "rescued" by compassionate surgeon Dr. Frederick Treves (Anthony Hopkins), who allows him to live at the hospital where he works. Merrick becomes a social celebrity when he meets a popular stage performer (Anne Bancroft), but he must continue to fight for his dignity with those who still choose to view him as a freak. Meanwhile, Treves begins to question whether his supposed act of humanity has been just as exploitative as Merrick's former caretaker's. Lynch's follow-up to his 1978 cult classic ERASERHEAD is a striking blend of art and entertainment, which earned the film eight Academy Award nominations in 1980. Freddie Francis's breathtaking black-and-white cinematography combines with John Morris's score to re-create Victorian England with a deeply haunting beauty. It is the compassionate performances of Hurt and Hopkins that lift THE ELEPHANT MAN to a more emotional level, however, bringing an inspired sadness to Lynch's striking vision.

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
