Bram Stoker’s Dracula (F.F. Coppola, 1992)

Been sick today and started a bedridden movie marathon.There’s countless inventive ways Coppola uses editing and picture to represent the German expressionist influence from Murnau, Weine, and Lang (namely the high angle, shadows, curved and pointed backdrops). But far too steeped in style to allow any sort of character to emerge. Must be all about the experience, and it just wasn’t that involving.
