Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, from 1992, is one of the quintessential divisive movies. Some loathe it. I think it's pretty terrific. Principally, I think it's bloody beautiful to behold. Thomas Sanders' Oscar-nominated production design, the great Eiko Ishioka's Oscar-winning costume design, the equally great Michael Ballhaus' not-even-Oscar-nominated cinematography (what happened there?!) combine to make one of the most visually impressive films of the 1990s.
