Edward Scissorhands

1990, Tim Burton et al

Tim Burton was near the peak of his career when he wrote and filmed this original fantasy tale. Although the visual style threatens to overwhelm the senses, and Danny Elfman's score is a bit too saccharine, Johnny Depp's deeply introspective performance carries the film through to a satisfying conclusion.

Burton's commentary track was disappointingly slim—he had hardly anything to say, and when he did speak, he sounded as though he was on (more than his usual amount of) drugs. So, his Y'Know? score was a mere 27.
