Paul A Woods 192 pages, Used
This definitive study charts the career of Tim Burton from his days as a malcontent animator at Walt Disney Productions to his current place as one of America’s most remarkable directors. It examines Burton’s “monster culture” influences — from the films of Ed Wood, Jr. to Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine — that imbue his films with rich visual imagery and emotional depth. For each film, the book provides a detailed analysis, articles and interviews, and a vivid selection of stills.
