My Thoughts on Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd is probably Tim Burton’s darkest film.

It is even more dark than Sleepy Hollow, which was released eight years ago (and featured over a dozen decapitations).

I would also say that this is probably Tim Burton’s best film so far. He has moved a long way in the 22 years he has been making films.

You could probably say at this point that Johnny Depp is a like-long collaborator for Burton, with this being his sixth Burton film.

I won’t say much more other than that this film will definitely be high up on my favourites for the year.
