Edward Scissorhands

Tim Burton USA, 1990

HKFanatic's rating of the film Edward mit den Scherenhänden

Burton has always seemed a touch out of time, as though he would have been more content turning out silent films in the Weimar Republic than working in the Eighties studio system, so it makes sense that his most successful work (aside from "Beetlejuice") would be a modern fairy tale. Burton makes great use of Depp as a physical performer, but the real star here is the score by Danny Elfman, arguably a career best.
