With the Batman films, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Ed Wood, Tim Burton has established himself as one of cinema's great visionaries. Formerly an animator with Walt Disney, Burton's ascent through the studio system to his current position as one of Hollywood's most successful directors has been swift. But while his movies are box-office gold, his approach is distinctly personal. In this fascinating and enlightening book, Burton talks about his childhood in Burbank, his time at Disney, the recurring themes present in his work, and how his films are fuelled by emotion, symbolism and sometimes inner torment.

“[Burton] is, to me, a true genius and I wouldn't use that word with too many people, believe me. You can't label what he does. It's not magic, because that would imply some sort of trickery. It's not just skill, because that seems like it's learned. What he has is a very special gift that we don't see every day. It's not enough to call him a filmmaker. The rare title of 'genius' is a better fit . . . in not just film but drawings, photographs, thought, insight, and ideas . . . I have never seen someone so obviously out of place fit right in.” ―Johnny Depp, from the Foreword
