  • Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street

    2007. USA/Great Britain. Directed by Tim Burton. With Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Alan Rickman. Based on Stephen Sondheim’s Grand Guignol musical, Sweeney Todd tells the tale of a murderous barber and his cannibalistic female partner in crime. Working with one of the most visionary of contemporary filmmakers, Ferretti created a hellish vision of London, completely re-created in Pinewood Studios as an amalgam of constructed sets and CGI. Ferretti’s inventions—the barber shop and diabolical chair, the creepy slaughterhouse below it, a crematory pie-shop oven, and a toxic labyrinth of city streets—won him his second Oscar. 116 min.
