A Tim Burton Trio at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Like Roald Dahl before him, Tim Burton is one of those storytellers who understands that children require a little bit of darkness in their fiction. He’s made a career out of twisting familiar fables; bringing his gothic sensibility to bear on musicals, superheroes and beloved storybooks. With films ranging from tiny cinematic love-letters like the terrific Ed Wood, to box-office behemoths such as his production of Alice in Wonderland, he’s always kept his sympathetic eye firmly fixed on the misfits, outcasts and interlopers of the world. This December, HOME pay tribute to one of Hollywood’s most darkly idiosyncratic directors with a trio of his most Christmassy films.
