EDWARD SCISSORHANDS
Burton | 1990 | US | 105m
“Chelsea Classics”
*Hosted by Hedda Lettuce
7:00*, 9:30 at Clearview Chelsea

Edward Scissorhands isn’t quite the pop classic it keeps promising to be; now that Burton is trying to create a rounded, emotional story, the thinness of the script hurts more than before… Yet I loved the film simply for the character of Edward, Burton’s purest achievement so far. As an image, a presence, he’s at once poetic and heartbreaking, and the innocent aggression implicit in his hands creates undercurrents of rich, subversive comedy. Depp may not be acting that much beneath his neo-Kabuki makeup but what he does is tremulous and affecting… Edward is, of course, Burton’s surreal portrait of himself as an artist: a wounded child converting private darkness into outlandish pop visions.”
