Fun Fridays – Director’s Top Films – Tim Burton

Hi Film Folk!

Maybe it’s early Halloween spirit or maybe homage to visually rich film pieces. Regardless, cinema’s eccentric with possibly the most recognisable style, Tim Burton is Film Doctor’s choice for this Fun Friday.


His latest creation, quirky 3D stop-motion animation Frankenweenie just had its European premiere at the 56th BFI London Film Festival (10-21 Oct).  Burton has brought to life numerous memorable (to say the least) characters – but what films have stuck with him ? Recalling his childhood movie-watching experience, Burton has once said:

“These kinds of films, there was something that harkened back to when you read a weird kind of pulp or fairy or folk tale.  They’ve got kind of rough edges around them. There’s something primal about them. A lot of these movies, for me, some of their flaws are actually their strengths. These are the kinds of films that if they’re on, I’ll watch them. Call it masochism, I don’t know. They’re a part of me.”

Here are some of those films:
