“Are you making a pass at me, Mrs. Blaylock?”

The Hunger

About: From its stylized opening sequence set to Bauhaus’ gothic anthem “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” to its multi-storied Manhattan townhouse setting, Tony Scott’s adaptation of Whitley Strieber’s novel builds vampiric glamour around its central couple: John (Bowie) and Miriam (Deneuve) Blaylock.  Flashbacks reveal Miriam’s origins in classical Egypt, with John the latest in an unbroken line of long-lived lovers who do, eventually, age rapidly and fail.  Miriam’s search for a cure leads her to Dr. Sarah Roberts (Sarandon), a scientist looking to turn back the body’s internal clock, and two paths to immortality collide.  With short if indelible appearances by Ann Magnuson and Willem Dafoe.
