Edward Scissorhands is a movie that influence me much. Maybe even too much.
Back then, I was just a kid when I saw this movie. But I can still recall the feeling I had when Peg Boggs come to the mansion and met Edward. I was afraid at first, thought that it must be a horror, and he’s going to do something horrible to her. But I was wrong.
Soon after, I had a crush with this movie in a bizarre way. I never found anything like this before: the character, the artistic approach, the atmosphere, the story, the state of loneliness and isolation. I was amazed. It was a moment of enlightenment. Tim Burton brainwashed me.
But Tim Burton was nothing but a stranger I never heard before. I didn’t even care who the fuck is the director that time. . I don’t even realize that Edward is the same handsome boy on 21 Jump Street too. I was so honestly fucked up.
If you know me, you know I’m still fucked up.
