A few remarks from The Eliphant Man –

The problems with machines – you can’t reason with them

You should get yourself to be more sociable mate, you will get yourself disliked

All you do is profit from another man’s misery

They have such noble faces

Is there a cure? No we can care for you, but there is no cure.

Am I a good man, or am I a bad man?

A real movie, present us with metaphors of life, so that real life can be scrutinized to find traces of essential, inherent, humanity. The Eliphant Man is one of them.
