Wolf

INSIDE EVERY MAN THERE ARE TWO PEOPLE ā€“ ONE GOOD, ONE BEAST.

Publishing editor Will Randall (Jack Nicholson) is bitten by a wolf in Vermont; in the following days, as he falls victim to workplace intrigue, Will realizes that heā€™s going through strange changesā€¦ Jim Harrison, who came up with the story, wasnā€™t happy about the final results, but this is nevertheless an adult, romantic, urban and intriguing horror movie that takes clever advantage of the werewolf myth. Takes on the shape of a dream at times; not really scary, but Rick Bakerā€™s effects are excellent. Nicholson is the perfect choice to play the editor who finds his transformation a chance to assert himself at work ā€“ and with women. James Spader is superb as his ingratiating competitor.

1994-U.S. 122 min. Color. Produced byĀ Douglas Wick. Directed byĀ Mike Nichols. Screenplay: Jim Harrison, Wesley Strick. Makeup: Rick Baker, and others. Cast: Jack Nicholson (Will Randall), Michelle Pfeiffer (Laura Alden), James Spader (Stewart Swinton), Kate Nelligan, Christopher Plummer, Richard Jenkinsā€¦ Eileen Atkins, David Hyde Pierce, Om Puri, David Schwimmer, Allison Janney.

Last word:Ā ā€œThe difference between [Nicholson] and other actors is that Jack’s underneath is on the surface. He’s kind of a walking id, wild and sophisticated at the same time. The wolf that he becomes is one of delicacy and sensibility, not a mad creature roaming the night and tearing throats out.ā€ (Nichols, EmanuelLevy.com)
