A Film That Rocked Your World

A little late admittedly, but just stumbled upon this little gem: being an interview (by the wonderful Margaret Pomeranz, no less) with my favourite, FAVOURITE (did I mention favourite?) filmmaker of all time, Tim Burton.

Incidentally, I just bought a very cool biography of him – as well as some merchandise from his recent exhibition at GOMA – in New York.

Though I love and adore quite a number of faboosh films, I have to say that none have ever really rocked my soul like Edward Scissorhands. I was depressed for weeks. I went back to see it four times at the movies (and this was back when I was twelve, when forking out for the cinemas was like taking out a mortgage). I collected everything I could get my hands on in any way Edward, Winona or Johnny (and strange combinations of the above) related.I ordered the soundtrack from England.

And I cried. Oh how I cried.

And…I decided that I wanted a career in entertainment.

In other words, it rocked me.

    A Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorites.

      I just love the whole aesthetic Burton’s got going – as, it seems, does an entire generation of emos. 😉

    Lately, Precious is the one film that rocked my world. It was harsh, horrible but an amazing story of perserverance. I don’t know that I’ve ever cried so much at a movie before this one.

      Ooh, you’ve just reminded me, this is SO on the top of my list of films to see! I can’t believe I haven’t gotten to it yet, it looks amazing.
