The Company of Wolves 1984 18

95 mins United Kingdom Director. Neil Jordan

The Gothic landscape of the imagination has rarely been filmed with such invention as it was in Neil Jordan's second feature. Within lavish, expressive sets the teenage heroine begins to discover her sexuality and its dark, unsettling power. Wolves become human, humans become wolves. The film's elaborate structure offers tales within tales, but what really grips is the utterly lucid fantasy.
