Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Creature with a grand imagination, magnificent capabilities and childlike inspired nobility is plucked out of isolation so he can partake of suburbia after his inventor dies. Depp's Edward is everything you don't expect. He is joyous and wondrous, living things he always envisioned but never realized and tempted by the evil that is a suburban housewife. Suburbia is welcoming, at first. Kathy Baker is splendiferous as a woman too hot to trot with. Michael Anthony Hall played himself marvelously. Dianne Wiest is a beautiful heart murmur. Alan Arkin schlepped. Vincent Price is a well deserved gay horror queen. Suburbia is where Karens are born, the religious take flight and nature goes to shit. Edward unites the community, becomes a hero but is deflated by a bully. A misconstrued wrongdoing leads to cancellation. He's no longer adorable but Frankenstein. There are plot holes. He eats which means he poops. How does he clean his butt? How does he pee? A hole in a water mattress makes the entire bed drain. Putting a teddy on it doesn't stop it from leaking. If Edward eats food is it necessary for his survival? Does the town receive free giant blocks of ice during the holidays? The inventor created a boy but had difficulty with hands? It doesn't matter. The music is magical, Wynona Ryder did the best by doing the least and Tim Burton is a master of creativity. He creates a place I want to live in, minus the people. I am Edward Scissorhands. 24-Aug-2021
