Tim Burton

Datum narození: 25. srpen 1958

Timothy William Burton je americký filmový režisér, scenárista, básník, spisovatel a filmový výtvarník známý svým nekonvenčním stylem.

Do širokého povědomí se dostal zejména po natočení kasovního trháku Batman v roce 1989, ke kterému později natočil i pokračování. Mezi jeho další úspěšné filmy patřil Střihoruký Edward, kde točil poprvé se svým oblíbeným hercem Johnny Deppem. Ten hrál i v dalších jeho úspěšných filmech jako Ed Wood, Ospalá díra, či Karlík a továrna na čokoládu. Depp taky namluvil hlavní postavu jeho animované Mrtvé nevěsty. Kromě Johnnyho Deppa patří k jeho častým spolupracovníkům i skladatel Danny Elfman. V roce 2006 vyšla v České republice také kniha Burtonových básní pod názvem Trudný konec Ústřičného chlapečka a jiné příběhy.


„I have a problem when people say something's real or not real, or normal or abnormal. The meaning of those words for me is very personal and subjective. I've always been confused and never had a clearcut understanding of the meaning of those kinds of words.“

„I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.“


„One person's craziness is another person's reality.“

„I always liked strange characters.“

„I've always been misrepresented. You know, I could dress in a clown costume and laugh with the happy people but they'd still say I'm a dark personality.“

„I never really got nightmares for movies. I was much more terrified by my own family and real life, you know?“

„One person's craziness is another person's reality.“

„Everything in this room is edible. Even I'm edible. But, that would be called canibalism. It is looked down upon in most societies.“ Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


„Stick Boy liked Match Girl,
He liked her a lot.
He liked her cute figure,
he thought she was hot.

But could a flame ever burn
for a match and a stick?
It did quite literally;
he burned up quick.“
The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories

„We all know interspecies romance is weird.“

„Visions are worth fighting for. Why spend your life making someone else's dreams?“

„But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets too close to her,

the pins stick further in.“


„Good morning starshine the earth says hello....“ Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

„When you don’t have many friends and you don’t have a social life you’re kind of left looking at things, not doing things. There’s a weird freedom in not having people treat you like you’re part of society or where you have to fulfill social relationships.“

„I am the shadow on the moon at night/Filling your dreams to the brim with fright.“

„The Girl With Many Eyes
One day in the park
I had quite a surprise.
I met a girl
who had many eyes.

She was really quite pretty
(and also quite shocking!)
and I noticed she had a mouth,
so we ended up talking.

We talked about flowers,
and her poetry classes,
and the problems she'd have
if she ever wore glasses.

It's great to know a girl
who has so many eyes,
but you really get wet
when she breaks down and cries.“
