Tim Burton is one of the great modern-day visionaries of cinema, a director who has fabricated his own deliciously nightmarish universe in movies as extraordinary as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks! and The Nightmare before Christmas - not to mention his twisted takes on the tales of Batman, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes. Following the release of his re-imagining of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with long-time comrade Johnny Depp (who also provides a new Foreword here), as well as Burton's return to feature-length animation with Corpse Bride, this updated and fully illustrated new edition of the definitive Burton interview book casts light on Burton's Burbank childhood, his early work at Disney, the recurrent themes and stunning designs of his movies, and the creative obsessions that fuel them.… (more)

The Directors on Directors series is a kind of Hello magazine for movie directors. The quote on the cover of my edition says 'a must for fans'. You wont really get much in the way of a critical perspective here. It reads like a series of standard 'making of' dvd featurettes. Some interesting details on how the movies got made. Worth a read if you already like the man's work. ( )

I enjoyed this from start to finish. It's just Tim, in his own words, discussing his works. The updated version goes right through the Corpse Bride. Because of the sometimes hostile critical reaction he's received over the years, much of what he says comes off as a bit defensive. Of course, if you love Tim's style as much as I do, you'll just agree with him. He's quite honest about the missteps as well.

While it's not as enlightening as Allen on Allen, this is still a great read. The twin forwards by Johnny Depp are quite nice as well. ( )
