Sweeney Pockets!

December 21, 2007

Just went to see Sweeney Todd. It was a great adaptation of the original musical… Tim Burton brought something to the show that I didn’t quite get from the Patty LuPone revival: ambiance. A sense of time and place. Burton’s version didn’t suffer from a lack of ambiance at all. It was so amazingly visual: dirty, gritty, greasy… and bloody…  which didn’t hurt for such a bloodbath of a story.

As my friend and I left, the only question I had on my mind was, “why didn’t the studio do a tie-in with Hot Pockets?” Like… free tickets… or a special “Human” flavor. Yum.
