  • Ed Wood

    1994. USA. Directed by Tim Burton. Screenplay by Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, based on Nightmare of Ecstasy by Rudolph Grey. With Johnny Depp, Martin Landau. In this offbeat biopic, Burton depicts the titular “World’s Worst Director” with equal amounts of mockery and sympathy. Although unquestionably portrayed as a filmmaker who relied more on gumption than talent, Burton’s Ed Wood is also an earnest man with an absolute belief in his vision and craft. Armed with pure optimism in the face of abject humiliation and rejection, he is the embodiment of hope, Burton’s nod to uncompromising artistic integrity in the face of daunting obstacles. 127 min.

  • Vincent

    1982. USA. Directed by Tim Burton. Screenplay by Tim Burton. With the voice of Vincent Price. This stop-motion animated short, in which a bored little suburban boy imagines a world worthy of Edgar Allan Poe, anticipates Burton’s flair for dramatic visuals and witty wordplay. 6 min.
