The thing that makes this book is the pictures. It's hysterical to see a laughing Sweeney sharing a joke with Tim Burton. Plus, you get to see interesting behind the scene shots and the original set and costume designs. I'm very glad I bought this book and I still look at it even though it has been almost half a year since the movie came out. Five stars!
I had to buy the soundtrack, I couldn't get the wonderful music from this movie out of my head. From start to finish, the soundtrack is amazing. If you loved the movie, I highly recommend purchasing the music- and it comes with a beautiful booklet of photos, the complete lyrics, and a forward from Tim Burton.
For those interested in filmmaking, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes information about the production. Here are some of the topics included:
Finding Sweeney Todd - casting Johnny Depp and his take on the title role.
Finding Mrs. Lovett - Helena Bonham Carter and her acting process.
Finding the Look - costumes, makeup, camera tests
Finding a Supporting Cast - discussion about the supporting actors such as Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen
Making Music - writing the musical score for the film, and the actors talk about singing
No Place Like London - discussion of the sets and locations used
Of course, all of this is accompanied by gorgeous photos. There are plenty of photos of the stars and the director on set, as well as sketches and concept art. Plus there are still images taken directly from the movie. The images are striking, and fortunately there are plenty of them. I would call this more of an art book than anything else - the text is interesting, but it's the pictures that make this book worthwhile.
