Review

THE HUNGER is a essentially a good film, but at times moves s-l-o-w-l-y. David does an excellent job of playing a basically nice vampire caught in a bad cycle of blood sucking addiction. His appearence in the film is some what brief, but he makes the most of the time he has with a well developed character. The make-up used to age him into a shriveled old man is complemented by David's ability to play age well, both physically and emotionally. The opening is slow, but well worth sitting through as the rest of the film is not so much horror and gore, but erotic and intellectual. Susan Sarandon and Catherine Denueve are both excellently cast and create some rather arousing scenes together. Catherine does move through most of the movie like she's been freebasing valium and at times Susan can be a bit, well annoying. THE HUNGER is definetely for fans of art films, as there is little action but many themes and ideas to be explored. Out of ten, I'd give it a seven and definitely reccomend renting it.
