    PDF History-books.co ñ PDF Elephant Man Kindle È ñ history books.co elephant free, 1980 pdf, Elephant Man PDFI first saw The Elephant Man at its pre release showing in and it struck an immediate and resonant chord with me Few movies are like this and it remains many viewings later one of my top films of all timeThe plot is presented well in other reviews here so I will not repeat it or comment further Of the film itself I would only add that it is without doubt the most mature and satisfying of David Lynchs works in many ways it is the final polished jewel carved from the rough and ugly but fascinating diamond of Eraserhead with the self conscious artiness and juvenile ualities of the earlier film distilled into a potent and poignant statement on the human conditionSome critics have dismissed The Elephant Man as an exercise in emotional manipulation however I believe this completely misses the point All films are manipulative to some degree but it is a manipulation in which we as an audience engage by consent The Elephant Man will stand the final test and i

    PDF History-books.co ñ PDF Elephant Man Kindle È ñ history books.co elephant free, 1980 pdf, Elephant Man PDFthis is a brilliantly done film it is uite raw and blunt about its subject matter however so it should not be viewed for entertainment purposes thought he story is inherently intriguing we must just sit and watch in curiousity and amazement but in concurrence with extreme sorrow as we are shown the brutality that john merrick must face as his reality a smile from another human being or even a pleasant greeting which is something that we all take for granted is treated by this man as the highest form of complimentary behavior possibleone of the best films that i have ever seen it wouldnt be called a top of all time film by the public though i may place it there however based solely on the fact that it as i mentioned earlier is lacking in terms of typical entertainment value even though you will certainly be immersed the entire way through ah who knows im not expressing myself very well make it a priority to see this film enjoyabsolutely amazing and memorable

    PDF History-books.co ñ PDF Elephant Man Kindle È ñ history books.co elephant free, 1980 pdf, Elephant Man PDFI believe that one of the greatest ideas in the movie is that it starts by frightening you it makes you fear John in such way that you dont even want to see him And then when the movie continues it is revealed that John is just a loving human being who wants to be loved like everybody else and you suddenly look at him and has a kind of sympathy for himThis is a VERY VERY VERY strong idea in my opinion BECAUSE the movie shows us that we are not better than anyone else Even though we think that the people whove seen John as a horrible deformed monster were horrible we were thinking the same way in the beginning of the movie Because the movie introduced John to us that way This teaches us that unfortunately we are not objective we dont really check things out before we judge them We base our opinions on what others tell us and not on whats right
