From Hollywood's acclaimed director Tim Burton (Batman, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) comes the offbeat, true life story of Hollywood's worst director, ED WOOD! Superstar Johnny Depp (Chocolat, Blow) portrays the eccentric filmmaker who refuses to let botched scenes and horrible reviews dash his hopes of making it in showbiz. Along with a bizarre band of misfit actors, a TV horror queen, a Swedish wrestling hulk and a down-and-out screen legend Bela Lugosi (Martin Landau in an Oscar-winning performance) - Ed takes the art of bad moviemaking to an all-time low. Engrossing and often hilarious, ED WOOD delivers non stop entertainment scene by scene.

  • A very entertaining a quirky movie. Tim burton at his best. Martin Landau was exceptional, as was Johnny, but then he always is :) maybe went for a bit long but was entertaining. Yes there definitely Willy Wonker type smilies. Had to laugh when SJP said they thought she had a horse face.

  • This is a highly entertaining film about 'The worst director of all time.' It's well worth the watch for the brilliant performance by Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi.

  • Quite brilliant. Cooky without being over the top. Depp is just amazing and I do not know how he does it. The nerdy smile reminded me of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory character from years later. Martin Landau was incredible as Bela Lugosi. I felt like I really wanted Ed to have just ONE big movie - that he could have lived on that his whole life. A lot more entertaining and enjoyable than I was expecting. Nice performance from the always lovely Sarah Jessica Parker.

  • This film is fantastic! As a Tim Burton fan I was impressed at the different feel this film had compared to most other Burton features. The filming technique felt quite close to Orson Welles style, which was clever, as he was Wood's icon. Johnny Depp and Bill Murray rarely fail to impress and they were both brilliant here. Landau as Lugosi was a hauntingly good casting choice and Parker, although not the finest of actors, was well placed. The film itself kept me enthralled from start to finish, regardless of how non-biographical the story was. In essence, Burton almost sells Wood to the audience and you are left yearning to know more about him and even watch his bazaar films! I have seen Plan 9, not knowing anything about the creator, and found it so hilariously ridiculous that it almost seemed brilliant. To recapitulate, all that is left to say is this is a wonderful, interesting and enchanting film that I am now going to recommend to everyone!

  • Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi is just A i loved this movie so much
