The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera ★★★½

I don't really like to dwell too much on the seven basic plots, or who so many movies are variations of other, earlier movies if I can avoid it, I do try to take movies on their own merits at face value, however...................HOWEVER, I have to say that I kind of have the sneaking suspicion that so much of what's been put on film in the last 95 years can be traced back to Christine's gnawing need to creep up on the Phantom and rip off his mask, only to draw back from the horror underneath that changes everything.
