A guaranteed good time for anyone looking for a different kind of horror film...
Mike Nichols' underrated 1994 hybrid not only of wolf and man, but also of satire and horror...an eccentric film that may well be regarded, decades hence, as a movie classic. [Blu-ray]
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Worth it to see Nicholson the wolf in fang-to-fang battle.
| Original Score: 4/5
Director Mike Nichols emphasizes the film's Kafkaesque metamorphosis, a metaphor for the nightmarish experience of becoming different from most people and less valued; I won't be surprised if some viewers see it as allegory about AIDS.
| Original Score: B-
Up until the rote ending, an elegant and witty take on the werewolf story.
| Original Score: 6/10
On the surface a literate werewolf thriller, the subtext of Mike Nichols' Wolf is a sharp critique about what it takes to succeed in the cutthroat corporate world.
| Original Score: 8/10
| Original Score: 3/5
'Jack Nicholson as a lycanthrope' is an interesting pitch, and it makes for a decent enough film.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Nicholson has rarely been better than here, walking the line between the refinement of society and the pleasures of things more elemental.
Will speak to both your inner animal and your civilized soul.
A different approach to the werewolf saga, aided by Nicholson's bizarre performance
