Poem used by Joseph Merrick to end his letters, adapted from "False Greatness" by Isaac Watts:

'Tis true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

If I could reach from pole to pole
Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind's the standard of the man.

This movie has the distinction of being the only movie to ever make tears run down my face, and I found myself making choking animal noises. Wasn't prepared for that... A masterpiece.

A very moving film, one of the most moving films I have ever seen. Showing that above all else kindness was all that mattered, above Joseph Merrick's early lack of intelligence and his deformities, kindness made him a better human than anyone else.
What a beautiful message to portray in a film.

One of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. A very touching movie with a lot of sad and intense moments. You really feel along with Joseph Merrick, a person who was horribly disfigured. John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins give amazing performances as well.

A left arm that is fully formed and genitals intact....now, really-what more could a man ask for?

All joking aside, to use an apropos English saying...it was bloody brilliant!

To those saying this is Lynch most accessible film ; I'm pretty sure you have not seen ''The straight story''.

Anyway, ''The Elephant Man'' is a wonderful film, a real piece of art and a very touching one that will haunts me for many days. After ''Eraserhead'', the expectation was really high for Lynch but his second film did not deceive.
