A heartbreaking and beautiful true story.

“First of all, I must say that you really need to have a very strong stomach to watch The Elephant Man; not so much because of Merrick's deformity but what had happened to him, what does happen to him and when we explore his past and who he really is, you need to be brave and watch this. I have seen many films in my time but this is the one film where I have felt almost incredibly sick because of the sympathy I have for John and what he goes through in the film. Those who are watching it for the first time or are at least giving it a long overdue re-watch, you perhaps might need to watch it with subtitles because you can't always understand what John is saying.

The most appalling side of the film's release is that it is a PG! I am astounded at that rating decision because there l” read more

Films That Cracked The Rock (Tearjerkers). (27 movies items)

"Out of joy or tragedy? Both. Which parts? People appreciating Merrick and being kind to him. On the other hand, the bullying that Merrick goes through is sickening to watch and his death at the end is so tragic. I mean, his disfigured appearance is horrifying to look at, in an emotional way."

Film certificates/ratings that are wrong. (24 movies items)

"Original rating: PG Rating it should be: PG-13/12 Why? There are moments that perhaps would scare viewers and possibly make them feel emotionally sick. Not in any offensive way, John Merrick's severely deformed face might give viewers some nightmares and also what happens to him within the film due to bullying and moments where he'd be upset, that would make it a depressing film too. Plus, I'm surprised that a film from David Lynch has reached the PG rating position when, quite frankly, there i"

Movies watched in 2010 (260 movies items)

"13/08/10, DVD Vaikka luonteeni onkin aikojen saatossa koventunut, niin silti tämä elokuva sai minut miltei kyyneliin. Lynchin toinen pitkä ohjaustyö kertoo löyhästi epämuodostuneen John Merrickin elämästä. Merrick yrittää sopeutua yhteiskuntaan, mutta ihmiset pelkäävät mitä eivät ymmärrä. John Hurt tekee Merrickinä loistavan roolisuorituksen ja herättää sympatiaa. Aluksi "Elefanttimiehen" olomuoto iljettää, mutta lopulta siihen tottuu ja ymmärtää sen olevan inhimil"
