Even before viewing the film, one is aware that it is not a conventional horror. Burton's previous films Beetlejuice and Batman prepare one to expect a film which is visually stunning, perhaps with humour or self-parody. The advance publicity for Edward Scissorhands used the phrase 'the story of an uncommonly gentle man' and posters showed a picture of a sombre Edward with a butterfly perched on one of the sharp blades constituting his hands. Contrasting images such as these reinforce the idea of a mixture of the romance and horror genres. Even without seeing publicity material, the PG certificate and the choice of teen favourites Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder for lead roles evidently suggest that this is a film aimed at the teenage market.

The scene begins with an establishing medium shot of antagonist Riff Raff stood in an elevator drinking white wine from the bottle in deep focus. Columbia, Janet, Brad and Magenta follow and Riff Raff drops the bottle then shuts the lift door.

Introduction to Literature Hills like White Elephants Ernest Hemingway's “Hills Like White Elephants” is a short story full of symbols with a theme of choices. He tells the short story in a third-person point of view that limits the narration to what the characters say and do; he does not reveal their thoughts. Hemingway uses the strengths of the characters in this story by giving more in depth description of the woman Jig, but less descriptive attention to her companion, who doesn't even have a name, just the American Man.
