There's a hole in the world like a great black pitAnd with those lines, the movie version of Sweeney Todd began. If movies are judged by how they affect you, then this movie should win every award and be elected the next President. This movie rattled me to the core. I had a difficult time speaking for about 30 minutes after the movie ended. My feelings had nothing to do with the gore. I like horror movies and the gore in this was comparable. But unlike a movie like Saw, I felt mentally ill when I left the theater.
and it's filled with people who are filled with shit!
And the vermin of the world inhabit it!
All that said; Todd was an amazing movie. Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Alan Rickman were beyond stellar. You'll forget about Borat when you watch Sacha Baron Cohen sing and act. Would I recommend this movie? Absolutely. Will I see it again? No way.
