Tim Burton at 50: the hero’s mid-life crisis.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

It is difficult to predict the development of Tim Burton's career now that his original protagonist, the eccentric creative mourning the loss of his father, is dead – or rather, now that the child element of the protagonist is gone. To find a way out of his ideological crisis, Burton has been trying different directions, including a female protagonist and reviving an old character that belongs to the times when Burton's heroes were still ‘children’ as well as ‘monsters’.
