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.

One of the most emotionally heaviest movies I have ever seen, quite an experience.

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!

Very touching film, you feel as though you're right next to Merrick through his struggles.

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.
