Director Tim Burton's loving homage to Movie Director, screenwriter, actor, and producer Edward Davis Wood, Jr. whose 1950's Horror, Western and Science Fiction films earned him a celebrated reputation as one of the worst but most exuberant directors of all time. Johnny Depp is perfectly cast as the ambitious Hollywood outsider alongside the wonderful Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi, a role that earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. A story of unbridled creativity shot in glorious black and white, Ed Wood is an upbeat comedy biopic made in the spirit of Wood's cult B Films, described by many as Tim Burton's best film.
