Cast out the being he'd brought into existence. It's about responsibility, hubris, a lack of foresight, and the destructive consequences of Frankenstein's actions speak to so many situations. It's great stuff -- and it's great because of how erudite and compassionate the Creature is, especially when compared the gentleman scientist who manages to show far less humanity than the novel's would-be monster does.

Before I even hit play, let me tell you where I’m coming from: I’m a man with pie, coffee, and coffee ice cream. I’ve seen the original run of Twin Peaks six times in full (yes, I even watch James Hurley’s god-awful subplot of death every damned time). Fire Walk With Me was misunderstood on release, and it’s among David Lynch’s best work. Personal favorite David Lynch film is Lost Highway, whic...

“Just because I'm a librarian doesn't mean I'm at all tame.”
James Turner, Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian

Annie Proulx
“Was love then like a bag of assorted sweets passed around from which one might choose more than once? Some might sting the tongue, some invoke night perfume. Some had centers as bitter as gall, some blended honey and poison, some were quickly swallowed. And among the common bull's-eyes and peppermints a few rare ones; one or two with deadly needles at the heart, another that brought clam and gentle pleasure. Were his fingers closing on that one?”
Annie Proulx, The Shipping News
