Ed Wood : Do you need background knowledge to appreciate this?

Do you need background knowledge to appreciate this?

It looks interesting but I know nothing about the real Ed Wood...

Re: Do you need background knowledge to appreciate this?

It helps but it's not necessary. If you know a few things about old Hollywood or have a fondness for B movies, horror and exploitation flicks, you might like it better. I love Ed Wood, the movie, but I can see that, to put it mildly, it's not a movie for all tastes.

I loved Ed Wood, the movie. Thought Johnny Depp did an amazing job of bringing him to life.
God though, the man must have been hard to live with!

Re: Do you need background knowledge to appreciate this?

Yes, and his drinking, which wasn't so awful from what I remember from the movie, in the time frame in which it was set, got worse as he grew older. Also, based on my experience, "lovable eccentrics" can easily become royal pains to live with in real life.

I didn't know anything about him either until after seeing this. I enjoyed it though and I still think it's one of the best Burton movies.

It's only stalking if she doesn't like u back.
