"Up the alley and down the street Fallon and Broom sell bones and meat.
Fallon's a butcher and Broom's a thief. And Rock's the boy that buys
At the film's closing, Dr. Thomas Rock(Timothy Dalton)proclaims that he
has become a ghost story that frightens children and questioned how it
had gotten so far.
A revisionist take on "The Body Snatcher"(..a marvelous film produced
by Val Lewton), this film has Dalton portraying a scientist whose
skills in anatomy are unsurpassed thanks to his intense study of dead
bodies. The law prohibits Rock from using fresh corpses for his
research so all he has to use are rotted corpses brought in by grave
robbers or criminals hung or animals. He soon enlists the aid of
graverobbers Fallon and Broom(Jonathan Pryce and Stephen Rea)to bring
him fresh bodies for proper research not knowing they are supplying him
with victims they murder. Julian Sands plays Dr. Murray, Rock's
assistant, who falls in love with a prostitute named Jennie(Twiggy)and
discovers when he goes to see her how Broom and Fallon get their
corpses so fresh.
The whole business of delivered bodies provides a special moral dilemma
within the story(..which worked quite well in "The Body Snatcher").
Also, the film is quite an indictment on the plight of impoverished
"squalor" who lie slowly dying in the streets and alleyways or drift
slowly into the abyss of alcoholism. Director Fisher's camera doesn't
shy away from the less fortunate as the film seems to show us
first-hand their suffering. Dalton's doctor is actually the sympathetic
figure in the film in regards to his recognizing the poverty that his
colleagues and peers seem to either ignore or just care not to
acknowledge. He honestly desires fresh bodies so that he can make a
difference in the advancement of the medical profession moving it from
the dark Ages to the 19th Century. It's just unfortunate he has to
resort to paying graverobbers for specimens. But, the film does
recognize(..like in "The Body Snatcher")that Rock knew very well that
some of his specimens may've been attained beyond reasonable means.
Thomas' sister provides a detrimental problem to the furtherance of his
work as she believes his ways are the works of the devil. His wife is
also seen as immoral by the sister for she artistically portraits
anatomical charts of the human body. Others question Thomas' work as
well, specifically Prof. Macklin(Patrick Stewart, whose role and
character is underwritten)who wishes for his unusual methods to be
grounds for dismissal.
The major moral crisis, though, comes when a deranged Fallon attempts
to murder Jennie and is sought after by Dr. Murray where Rock's illegal
researching in accepting bodies murdered might soon be discovered.
While he only wishes to advance anatomy to save lives, his accepting
murdered bodies is indeed considered immoral and unlawful.
While the material of the film might seem familiar, considering it just
really feels like a remake of "The Body Snatcher" and is just difficult
not to think of the previous film while watching "The Doctor and the
Devils", Fisher's marvelous direction makes up for it. Unlike his
Hammer years, Fisher doesn't have to hold back. He isn't held down by
restrictions and can display the cruel realities of life such as the
squalor in the streets as the epidemic it was. The period
cinematography feels fresh and completely genuine. It is quite grim and
bleak which might put off many with no hope seemingly in sight for many
in this film. Fisher keeps the film, for most of the way, on the
dreaded streets so that we have a hard time looking away from the
