Ed Wood

Ed Wood is Tim Burton’s best movie. Everything you’d ever need to understand Tim Burton as a creative being is right up front, lovingly shot in beautiful black and white. Even if you don’t like Burton (or Johnny Depp, a situation that’s recently become a lot more likely), it’s hard not to love Ed Wood. A huge part of that is thanks to the award-winning work by Martin Landau, playing a ragged, sad, but still-explosive Bela Lugosi. It’s a turn both hilarious and heartbreaking, sometimes in the same scene, sometimes in the same second, and now that Mr. Landau has left us, the poignancy of his performance will pack that much more punch.
