The art direction is really wonderful. The palatte of drab stark contrasts and occasional flashes of red, red blood are beautiful and create an otherworldly ambiance..
Yeah, Sweeney Todd won't end up among my all-time favorite films, or not even my favorite musicals (I think?), but it was sure damn fun to watch.

I enjoyed the comic aspects, especially Todd sitting sullenly at the beach in Mrs Lovett's fantasy song, and wished there could have been a few more to lift the gloomy melodrama..
