ALL YOU BLEEDERS! 3:) WE ALL DESERVE TO DIE!
I know some people can't bare musicals to the point of violent, vomiting, utter hatred, but I absolutely love the Tim Burton film SWEENEY TODD. A superb Halloween movie that has plenty of mood, misery, blood, and tasty darkness. It is also one of Johnny Depp's best performances and collaborations with Tim Burton –– right up there, if not surpassing, SLEEPY HOLLOW and EDWARD SCISSORHANDS.
My favorite sequence in SWEENEY TODD is the EPIPHANY –– a classic, although offbeat, Broadway tune married with cinematography, shot design, art direction, and performance that is quite literally to die for. So enjoy this clip –– EPIPHANY –– from the film. A sequence that is gorgeously grim, beautifully brutal, and overflowing with absolute rage. What more could you ask for on a chilly Autumn night? 3:)
Please excuse the foreign language subtitles, and be sure to watch in 1080p HD!
