Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street ★★★★★

I'm not a huge musicals fan, but I like Sondheim. I like his often tongue twisty lyrics and I enjoy the way he uses what appears at first to be an off key note here and there in his music.

Combine this with the genius of Tim Burton and an absolutely outstanding cast and you have the delightful Sweeney Todd. Burton should do more with this level of gore and leave the likes of the campy Dark Shadows alone.
