4.0 out of 5 stars Theres more to Tim Burton than meets the eyes - find out why, 26 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Tim Burton: An Unauthorized Biography of the Filmmaker (Paperback)
This book gives you a good insight to the man and his films. The book tries to get into Tim's psyche by using his films to reflect how Tim must view the world. He likes to think he was different as a boy, a bit of a loner growing up in a normal town in a normal street in a normal house. This awkwardness around normality manifests itself in his films. You only have to look at his version of Batman -dark and alone, Edward Scissor hands - a strange man viewed as a freak by the suburban neighbourhood. The book suggestively ties Tim's films and the characters of his films back to the so-called New-Hollywood director's own characteristics. The slight down side of the book is that everything is assumed and although it makes reasonable attempts at analysing his work as a reflection of the director, there are no real interviews to back this up. Overall Well worth reading - having read this book it becomes clear why Tim's films are as they appear on the big screen.
