Someone was listening when I was pining for a pair of long black leather gloves! AND to my raving about Werner Herzog's adaptation of the Dracula legend. I loved Bram Stoker's novel, and Coppola's rendition is highly entertaining, but as in the words of one imdb user: "Nosferatu's Count Dracula (sic) is not a charming eastern European gentleman with a quirky bloodsucking habit and a lovesick soul, he is a wily, terrifying, inhuman, obsessive predator". I guess I'm a stickler for keeping to original text. If you are like me and don't require nonstop action and special effects, the stark but and stunning cinematography of this motion picture will captivate you too!
