Speak, BATMAN: Tim Burton's Version, 25 Years Later

Something got me to the theater to see Burton’s "Batman": perhaps it was my love of "Beetlejuice," perhaps it was the concept of casting someone as schlubby as Michael Keaton as a superhero; maybe it was the heat. But there I was.

Just as people ultimately judge a book by its cover, many of us are quick to judge a film by its trailer. When I was asked to set my sights on Tim Burton's upcoming "Dark Shadows," a movie based on the cult TV show of the late 1960s, as my next entry point for Criterion Consideration, I immediately knew where my judgment would most likely fall.
