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

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


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’.
