|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
A loving look at Edward D. Wood, Jr. , a man of boundless enthusiasm and no talent who made some of the worst movies of all time (including GLEN OR GLENDA and PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE). Cast to perfection, with Depp ideal in the title role. Landau--in Rick Baker makeup (both men won Oscars)--is positively astonishing as the aged and impoverished Bela Lugosi, whom Wood befriended. There isn't much story thrust here, but the vivid re-creation of time and place makes this a must for any old-movie buff.
