Ed Wood - REVIEW

Film of the Day #199/ 300

Edward D. Wood's movies might have been the worst ever made, however, they inspired true brilliance. Tim Burton’s Ed Wood is a glorious homage to the power of film and the worst director in history. This majestic Hollywood-themed biopic stars Johnny Depp as the crossing dressing visionary and Martin Landau as the legendary Bela Lugosi. Ed wood is an oddly affectionate biopic that is charming essential Burton. The movies black and white photography convincingly captures the lost essence of 1950’s cinema and remains the greatest movie about the pleasures and hardships of independent filmmaking.
