Movie pick of the day: The Elephant Man (1980) directed by David Lynch. The first time I saw this movie was when I was nine and visiting my family in Guatemala. There was only seven channels that worked and two of them offered to play movies every evening on the weekends. They would always show the same movie for a month and I was lucky enough to experience this one. The first time I saw this I was scare and horrified of John Merrick but thanks to repeat viewings of this movie I began to sympathize with a person who just wanted to be like everyone else. But was consider an outcast because of the way he looked. This movie taught me that what is in the inside of a person is more important then their exterior.
