A Film By Your Favourite Director
I had to think for a moment who my favourite director was – I don’t often pay attention to such things – but I think it is probably say that Tim Burton is probably one of my top ones. Don’t get me wrong I HATE his version of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory but that aside I generally adore his work because of its twisted alternative angles, dark humour and slighty creepy edge which somehow is almost always also full of love at the same time, even if it is a bit black.
Tough to pick just one film but I think I’m going to go with Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street because it is a magical mix of everything – music, laughter, gore, twisted humour, love, betrayal, comedy. Not for the faint hearted but utterly, utterly brilliant.
