the ninth gate
Director: Roman Polanski
Starring: Johnny Depp, Frank Langella, Lena Olin, Emmanuelle Seigner, Barbara JeffordIn Brief: Roman Polanski's 1999 supernatural thriller The Ninth Gate is perhaps the closest the filmmaker has ever come to making a straightforward horror movie — even if it takes a good deal of the film's running time to get to the straightforward horror content. (Well, it's Polanski, after all, and he's not known as a traditionalist.) Though sadly underappreciated at the time, the film — about an unscrupulous book dealer (Johnny Depp) trying to verify which of three copies of a rare volume on the occult is genuine — has come to be more favorably assessed over the years. And it should be because it's first-rate on every level.
