Burton's fondly atmospheric homage to the so-called 'worst director of all time'. More than a biopic pastiche, the emotional heart of the film is found in the genuinely caring relationship between Wood and the dying, drug-addicted Bela Lugosi (a marvellous Martin Landau). Depp plays Wood as a bundle of energy and innocent romanticism, capturing the spirit of dogged determination that makes the subject such an appealing character.
