Watched the Elephant Man today and it was amazing. It was fascinating to find that although I'm the kind of person who doesn't mind that sort of thing scary I was rather afraid at first of the Elephant man. However as the film progressed, my horror soon turned into pity. If I had to choose which character I would relate to, I'd be Frederick Treves. Shocked into silence at the first sight of Joseph but then eventually would warm up to him, enough so to even give him a hug. But it's also this sort of thing which I find a strange sense of fascination in.
