Oct. 31: Sleepy Hollow


Sleepy Hollow (Tim Burton, 1999)
Wed. Oct 31 9 :10 PM; City Cinema
Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, Christopher Walken

Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.

” An ornate visual fantasy of Burton’s can be expected to make its own rules, and “Sleepy Hollow” does that with macabre gusto. His idea of a beautiful day may be somebody else’s nuclear winter, but Burton eagerly brings his visions of sugarplums to the screen. (…) Using a color palette more often associated with stories of the gulag, “Sleepy Hollow” creates a landscape so daunting that even a large tree bleeds ” Janet Maslin – The New York Times.
