The Underrated ‘Sweeney Todd,’ Now on DVD: a Rant

It’s crazy that the boring adaptation of Chicago pranced off with a basket of Oscars while Sweeney Todd, new to DVD, won none. Johnny Depp stretched further than any actor nominated. And though Helena Bonham Carter’s rendition of “The Worst Pies in London” is a nasty miracle, she was apparently too working class for the Academy (which nominated Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth and wasted its award on 9/11 conspiracy theorist Marion Cotillard). Show this movie some love!
