Wow. I think I was the only person that hadn't seen this movie before. And that is a crime.
I know this because now having seen it, I would have to say Edward Scissorhands is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The contrasts of light & dark, the picture painted of Suburbia, the dramatic shift in the neighborhood point of view... All of it works towards a perfect modern fairy tale, a very tragic modern fairy tale.
And the movie pulls you in. I felt for Edward; I felt his pain and joy. Johnny Depp did an amazing job portraying a character's emotions and thoughts---while barely speaking. The movie was more than just watching a movie... it was an EXPERIENCE. And one with lessons that I think all of us could learn.
If you, like me, were one of the few people who had never seen it, go now. If you have seen it, see it again. The film is amazing.
