#4. Ed Wood
The much-celebrated Tim Burton film Ed Wood is a masterpiece in its own right. However, it is perhaps one of the least universally accessible films of Depp’s career. It alienates viewers who are not overly familiar with the infamous Edward Wood Jr’s ridiculous career in Hollywood. As a film in itself, it remains a glorious account of one man’s fearless struggle to achieve his goals, regardless of all obstacles. Shot in beautiful black and white, it features a wonderful Oscar-winning performance by Martin Landau alongside Depp at his most charismatic. A cinematic triumph, if only it was more relatable.
