Sleepy Hollow



Title: Sleepy Hollow
Directed by: Tim Burton
Written by: Andrew Kevin Walker, Tom Stoppard, Kevin Yagher, Washington Irving
Year: 1999

The length of this review should be taken as a hint of what I thought about the film. I do not know whether it was because of circumstances of because of the film itself, bit I found almost nothing in this production worthwhile. I will admit that Johnny Depp was good as usual, and that the late 18th-century scenery was nice, but apart from that, this is not my cup of tea.

The story is based on the legend of the headless horseman, faced by Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) who clings to his scientific view of reality, but is pushed hard when the nightmare gradually grows darker and more supernatural. Considering the poor grade, do not think that I found the film ineptly produced or anything, it is just that I find the story and the concept extraordinary dull and uninteresting.

    Oj, som du ser håller jag inte med dig. Jag gillar Sleepy Hollow och hade jag haft skalan då så hade den nog landat på en fyra eller så.

    Jag håller inte heller med, men så är jag också en stor fan av Tim Burton.
