Saw Sweeney Todd the day after Christmas with the Yostenbergs and I have to say it was the first movie I’ve genuinely enjoyed in a while. The abundance of throat slitting makes for a very dark and almost indulgent contrast to the musical numbers. Johnny Depp did a good job out in front, but the cast did an equally good job all the way around. Quality is always top notch with Tim Burton running things. The R rating probably kept ticket sales down, but if you can handle the blood give it a shot or queue it up in Netflix.
Sidenote: Sarah would like to plug Atonement for Keira Knightley’s green dress and excellent library scene.
