Ed Wood by Tim Burton (1994, 125 min.). From the inspired imagination of Burton comes this provocative and often bizarre look at famed B-movie director Ed Wood, portrayed brilliantly by Johnny Depp. Burton masterfully reproduces Wood’s poignant relationship with fading film icon Bela Lugosi (Academy Award-winner Martin Landau) and the director’s off-screen lifestyle, which often paralleled the quirky, comedic tone of his legendary screen turkeys.
