Ed Wood 
Ed Wood review
3.5/4 stars

"This business, this town, it chews you up, then spits you out." Second viewing of this film makes this rater believe it is truly one of Burton's best and a very good Hollywood related film. The movie about a horrendous director who is a transvestite named Ed Wood (Johnny Depp). He befriends actor Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau) and creates films with a bunch of misfit crew. Screenplay was superb with lines from Criswell "Eddie, we're in show biz. It's all about razzle-dazzle. Appearances. If you look good, and you talk well, people will swallow anything," Orson Welles "Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?" and Ed "This is the one. 'This' is the one I'll be remembered for." The soundtrack and performances (especially Landau and Depp) were wonderful. It's themes were touching as well. Ed may have not been close to his idol Welles, he still reaped a reputation based on his films while forging a friendship with an old drug induced Hollywood artist and being true to himself. A struggling actor who never saved up and just splurged on drugs. It exemplifies how Hollywood treats people and how difficult it is to create a movie. Ed Wood is tragic, funny, biopic and dramatic, an unappreciated flick that is admired by movie-lovers and Burton/Depp fanatics alike. If only Burton could revisit andmake more such as this instead of relying on flash than substance.
