Ed Wood (1994)

Ed Wood is a biographical film based on the life of the ever so famous Edward D. Wood Jr, who is now known to be the worst movie director of all time. Which is ironic as during his living life his ambition was to be famous for his films, but its only in his after life when he truly becomes famous for his films, for all the wrong reasons. The three films in which Wood are famous for are 'Glen or Glenda', 'Bride of the Monster', and 'Plan 9 from outer Space', which in the film set the timeline for the biography.

Through out the film we see many draw backs on Wood's pursue to become a famous director, but most incredibly of all we see his rather cooky alter ego and his heart felt relationship with famous B-Movie star Bella Lugosi. Whom of which had some of the most comical scenes within the film. The film is shot in black and white which really help set the scene in a retro fashion. It was only due to Johnny Depp's role in the film which drew my mind back to realism and the idea that the film is a remake of a biographical b style movie.

The film had a great cast which was full of really individual characters which really tops the film in terms of the actors relation to the characters. Overall i would say that this movie was a great watch for the current project as it helped set the scene within B-Movies, as well as it just being a good movie in general.
