Format: Hardcover
A well produced book to compliment the film. Excellent photographs and illustrations. Good detail. A worthy publication for anyone who enjoyed the film and would like a little more background knowledge about it.

Format: Hardcover
That book is a marvellous treasure. It is dedicated to the film of Tim Burton and hence to Johnny Depp whose bleak and disquieting face is on the cover all surrounded by red and dry blood dark red brown. He is the man you just do not want to meet in a back alley in London or any other place in the world.

The book gives you explanations about the making of the film, the choosing criteria for the main actors and the supporting actors, the designing of the set and the costumes, in one word everything. If you like the film, if you like films in general, if you like the cinema, this book is absolutely indispensible.

But the book is essentially a picture book and there you will be lost in reverie and a dream-catcher's dreamscape, not even trying to relive the film, but thrown into it at once and soaked into it as long as you can take it, and I must say I turned the pages very slowly because that blood bath in that entirely fictional but fascinating universe is the source of the highest ever excitement and exhilaration leading to mental, physical and even erotic pleasure. It is not cathartic. It is absolutely real in your own mind and skull. You are holding the razors and committing rapture on these hate-inspiring criminal minded small social climbers that end up judge, priest, cop or whatever, guarding the doors of the aristocratic and financial temple.

But the book is even better because it provides us with large excerpts of the script, the dialogue, and the style of that dialogue is absolutely mesmerizing. Tim Burton is always making poetical films. But this one reaches the level of a poetic epic. Sweeney Todd is some kind of Robin Hood in the vestment of a social and moral Hercules.
