With Scorsese and De Niro, the Burton/Depp working relationship is one of the most enduring in Hollywood, and if ever a project came along that suited both these creative oddballs, Ed Wood is it.

With Burton's signature visuals, it's actually a pretty serious and sensitive biopic about the man universally accepted to have earned the title 'worst film director in history'.

Depp has a fantastic time playing the cross dressing powerhouse of energy, convinced he can make a name for himself in Hollywood but suffering fates that would become legend (such as a movie sitting unreleased for twenty some years because he couldn't afford to pay the film lab).

An inspired cast breathe life into a tale that's comic, tragic and fascinating.
