So, I just got back from a midnight showing of Sweeney Todd, and I'm on the verge of collapse, so I'll make this short (for me): It was the best movie I have ever seen. I want the soundtrack so that those glorious songs can grace my ears whenever I please. The movie is both dramatic and hilarious, and by the third song I felt I got my nine bucks worth. The staging and lighting are brilliant, and the movie is as gorgeous as the songs, in fact, I don't think that computer generated imagery was used for anything beyond the credits and a little touch-up. Most of the effects were done with simple pipes and orange liquid (The filter was the same or similar to the one from Corpse Bride, dull and gray. The blood shows quite well). The ending made me weep, so melancholic and tragic, like Macbeth. Indeed, it follows the Shakespearean Tragedy tradition of "Everyone dies." Brilliant.
