This will always be Tim Burton’s masterpiece. A quirky true story that allowed Burton to apply his talents properly, making an interesting film that I thoroughly enjoyed. I actually admire Ed Wood because it has the difficult task of being a film about making films, but Burton masters this niche genre. This’ll be one of the only times I’ll say this but what elevates the film is the central performance by Johnny Depp. He captures the hyperactive behaviour of a creative thinker, and the desperation of a man following his dreams, which holds the film together at its core.
