I’m not allowed to have an opinion—or publish one, at any rate—until a week from Friday. But there were tons of civilians at the press preview of Tim Burton’s new film version of Sweeney Todd. You folks aren’t similarly constrained. So… were you there? What did you think? Who would have thought that Burton could make the actual slitting of throats seem less violent than drop down the chute into the basement of Mrs. Lovett’s cookhouse? Sheesh.
