Erica Weiner Presents: Bram Stoker's Dracula - 35MM
Drama, Fantasy, Horror | 1992 | 128MIN
Francis Ford Coppola
The world wasn’t clamoring for a new Dracula in 1992, yet master filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola managed to deliver one so lavish and finely crafted that it now stands comfortably with the best cinematic versions of Bram Stoker’s genre-defining novel. Though claiming fealty to Stoker right in the title, Coppola’s take is actually a love story, one that rests largely on the capable shoulders of Gary Oldman in a performance that manages to be both romantic and fearsome. Winona Ryder – as love interest Mina Harker – is suitably beguiling and Keanu Reeves, well… he’s Keanu. But the secret star of Bram Stoker’s Dracula is Roman Coppola’s dazzling, dizzying sleight of hand in-camera effects, the jaw-droppingly lush production design of Thomas E. Sanders and the Oscar winning costumes of Eiko Ishioka. Oh, and Anthony Hopkins is pretty fun as a battier-than-Dracula Van Helsing. With a haunting, iconic Wojciech Kilar score.
