The mostly true story of the legendary ‘worst director of all time’. Ed Wood was an eccentric Hollywood outcast who filmed an oddly endearing series of B-films despite a lack of commercial success. He was aided by a bunch of showbiz misfits who had a strong belief in his off-kilter vision.

This is the best film Tim Burton has ever made. Ed idolized Bela Lugosi in the same way that Tim considers Vincent Price to be one of his cherished heroes. This is a movie about film love and it is also a movie about wanting to honor and ultimately take care of your fallen pop culture heroes. It's achingly human and absurdly funny.
Not only the great Burton film, but one of the top ten greatest films of all time. A flawless celebration of schlock films and film making that makes you want to pick up a camera and tell your stories. Not to sound corny, but it's true, Ed Wood is one of the most inspirational films ever made.
