In medieval France, knight Rutger Hauer and lady fair Michelle Pfeiffer both run afoul of evil-bishop John Wood. Through the auspices of bishop's confessor Leo McKern, Hauer and Pfeiffer are placed under a curse. During the night, Hauer takes the form of a wolf, while Pfeiffer assumes the form of a hawk by day. The two lovers can only meet one another as humans at dawn and dusk. The only mortal in a position to rescue Hauer and Pfeiffer from their fate is nebbishy pickpocket Matthew Broderick, who acts as liaison between the lovers. With the help of the guilt-ridden McKern--and a convenient solar eclipse--Broderick endeavors to set things aright. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Vittorio Storaro - The Last Cinematographer?
This 3 time Oscar winning artist reached his peak as cinematography's golden age drew to a close and special effects came to greatly influence the look of a film. Storaro is still striving to create films optically, without compositing or CG.
Goblins and Wizards and Elves, oh my
best films in the often overlooked and misunderstood "Fantasy" genre (missing is the best of them all: the 1940's version of "The Thief of Baghdad" not yet come to DVD)
