Vanity Fair, August 2009 – Mad About the Hatter

Title: Mad About the Hatter

Author: Evgenia Peretz

Publication: Vanity Fair

Issue: August 2009


After the huge success of Batman {I989], Tim Burton might have gone the route of Hollywood action director, churning through every iconic American superhero. Instead, he has spent the last 20 years on his own candy-colored, cobweb-by path, inventing heartbreakingly peculiar heroes [Edward Scissorhands] and giving a macabre edge to children’s classics [Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory]. It would seem inevitable that one day he’d take on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, last seen on film in the bland animated Disney version of 1951. Fifty-eight  years later, the Cheshire Cat and the Red Queen were begging to be reimagined by the living master of cheeky Goth.

It’s inevitable, also, that it would star, as the Mad Hatter, Johnny Depp, whose real-life passion for haberdashery could hardly be better documented. Now on their seventh collaboration, Depp and Burton both grew up as suburban outcasts and admit to speaking a language on set that no one else understands. The film also stars Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Burton’s partner, Helena Bonham Carter, as the Red Queen, Crispin Glover as the Knave of Hearts, and Mia Wasikowska {In Treatment Defiance} as Alice. The director has employed “’performance capture” technology and 3D—two more reasons it seems destined to be of a rare breed; the auteur’s blockbuster.
