Edward Scissorhands

by

Dir. Tim Burton (1990).
Tim Burton’s suburban kindermarchen puts a loopy, cheerful spin on the pulp angst premise of I Was a Teenage Werewolf; it’s an elaborate, ostentatiously sweet fantasy with a steely sadomasochistic edge. Johnny Depp is brilliantly behavioral in the title role.
