Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
over the dark and gruesome backdrop of blues, grays, and blacks, was the juxtaposition of beauty from the pales, greens, reds, and whites. this movie was visually beautiful and unsurprisingly delightful, as what you would expect from a tim burton film. … there was life within death, beauty within the grotesque, hope within the desolate, and love within the hate.
that’s what i loved about the movie- that despite the seemingly dross calloused murders, there was still great beauty, still great color, and purpose.
i don’t really want to spoil the ending, but todd said it well during the middle of the movie- there is always something about humanity that deserves death.
that’s what was missing you know- grace and a hero.
but morals aside, great singing. great story. superb acting. such beautiful costuming. the one thing i would have done differently is to cut some of the songs…or make them a little shorter…
