"You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren't up there now... I don't think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it. "

There is a reason that, of all the films Tim Burton has directed and of all the films Danny Elfman has scored, this film stands out as their favorite of their respective works. EDWARD SCISSORHANDS is a work of staggering imagination and hopeless beauty.

Johnny Depp finds a way straight into your heart with the use of only 169 words and an innocently blank stare. We've all been that outsider, maybe not with leather gimp wear, but we've all been that person on the outside dying to get in...but without a clue in the world how to do it.

Tim Burton has made his living off of these outsider creations, but none have connected with me so completely as the spectacular wonder of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS. The unrequited love and monosyllabic gut-punchingly pure responses will leave even the strongest of men with tear streaked faces.

And that is why this December, as our hope for snow grows, we will gather at the Alamo Drafthouse to celebrate the snow-bringer, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS. (Greg MacLennan)
