The Best Burtonesque Movies

You are probably thinking what does “Burtonesque” means. Well that’s what we are here for, to provide you the wisdom about the epicness of POP-CULTURE. You will become cultured, LOLZ.

Burtonesque is a unique blend of surrealist nightmare and child like whimsy, inspired by german expressionism, suburb americana and the gothic sensibility.

Time for history kids.

The german expressionism movement from the post world-war I period is defined by distorted or slanted shapes, high contrast light and dark, and prominent shadows.

Tim Burton pays homage to german expressionist classics like Metropolis and The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari. Burton’s work creates the sense that you are in a stylized dream giving visual form to emotion.
