I recorded a 25-minute chat yesterday afternoon with Sweeney Todd director Tim Burton. Affable guy, easy to talk to, knows his stuff. Saying it once more — Sweeney Todd is an art film extraordinaire and Burton’s finest since Beetlejuice. (Even with the blood.) Anybody who has a chance to catch a digital presentation of Sweeney Todd, please do this — it’s the only way to go.

I took this shot at a small party for Burton and the Sweeney Todd producers last night at S Bar, on Vine Street south of Hollywood Blvd. Not too crowded, great Lemon Drop martinis. It was raining cats and dogs outside.
