whilst pulling my last pair of clean knickers and last two socks out of my drawer, i had a film-catharsis.

i spent all of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wondering exactly *what* Johnny Depp was trying to do with the Willy Wonka character. it was familiar to me (and not just because it was part Edward Scissorhands) in a way i couldn't pin down and was driving me batty. however, it's just come to me that he's doing a demented Mr. Rogers. it works exactly. neat.

Depp said he was basing the performance off Soupy Sales and other creepy kids show hosts that frightened him during his childhood.

same idea, i'm thinking. i always found Mr. Rogers vaguely creepy.
