Strange One

I snuck off to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when I should have been finishing something creative of my own, but it turned out to be a good thing. No, I don't think it's better than the original, but I adored it for Tim Burton's sake, because he's my hero even though he loves being a terrible filmmaker. Every Burton film I watch peels away a little more of the humble and sophisticated veneer I've carefully laid over the wretched, extreme eccentric that lies within; I wish I could thank him for that, because it's going to be my salvation. I'm afraid of the fact that Burton-Elfman-Depp is something of a holy trinity to me. Sometimes it just feels good to give in.
