Ed Wood Reviews

September 27, 2012
A more-than-competent transfer of one of American cinema's unsung gems, but Ed Wood deserves Criterion-level respect.

Buena Vista Home Video's long-delayed DVD release of Ed Wood makes the wait worthwhile.... The chief attraction among the extras is the informative and entertaining commentary audio with Tim Burton, Martin Landau....

My favorite deleted scene: Bill Murray as Wood's transsexual wanna-be crony serenading a mariachi band in a meat locker with "Que Sera Sera" in an eccentric sexual swoon.

Landau is wonderfully real, and with the movie's humor providing an ideal counterbalance, his touching performance enriches the film tremendously, and legitimizes it.

The film is a heart-on-the-sleeve salute to those who relentlessly pursue their dreams and, driven by an innate passion, blindly follow their bliss.

...most of the movie is really a tragedy about how a dying movie star has to demean himself making movies directed by a hack who doesn't even know that he's terrible.

A loving tribute to bad b-movies and Burton seems to direct his actors as if they are in one.

Pauline Kael was referring specifically to Cage's work in Vampire's Kiss, but she just as easily could have been referring to Johnny Depp in Ed Wood.

The finest Tim Burton movie ever made...told with a lot of heart and a lot a reverence, not just for the real-life characters but for the era in which those movies were made.
