It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

Not aging well.

The classic Frankenstein is a classic example of a film that clearly had an impact in its time, but has dulled with age. Of all the classic films I have watched, it is amongst the most poorly aged. There are perhaps two moments in the film that still work, the Monster killing the doctor and most vividly, the father taking his daughter's body into the town. That beat is still as effective today as then, but the rest of the film has been surpassed as a horror film, though perhaps it still works as a tract on mob violence and humanity gone mad.
