Ed Wood (1994)
#75 on my Top 100 List
This is one of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton's best collaborations, in my opinion. Johnny Depp is absolutely brilliant as Edward D. Wood, Jr. - the worst movie director of all time. The cast that Burton put together is awesome and includes Bill Murray as transvestite Bunny Breckinridge and Martin Landau in his Academy Award-winning performance as Bela Lugosi. Burton's decision to make the film in black and white makes in greatly reminiscent of the films that Wood himself made, deludedly thinking that they were bound to be remembered forever. Well, they were in fact remembered forever, but certainly not in the way that he intended.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
