The HungerBuy Tickets
A black velvet, crimson-blooded fairy tale for the post-punk ‘80s, The Hunger is a goth masterpiece of exquisite beauty and timeless passion, an atmospheric and visually striking feature length debut from director Tony Scott. When the longtime lover (David Bowie) of a centuries-old vampire (Catherine Deneuve) begins to deteriorate rapidly, a scientist (Susan Sarandon) studying the effects of aging ignites a fiery love triangle that threatens to engulf them all.
“What makes The Hunger so much fun is its knowing stylishness, which Mr. Scott, who makes his theatrical film debut here, has brought to movies from a career in commercials and documentaries. Here is a film that, for once, is appropriately served by fast cuts, overlapping dialogue, flashy camera work, wildly fashionable clothes and decor so elegant that only mythical creatures could sit around in it.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
