    Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

    April 14, 2010

    What Is It?

    The book by the odd and talented Roald Dahl brought to the big screen by odd and talented Tim Burten with odd and talented Johnny Deep in the lead. You can see where this is going….

    It’s a surreal version of our world going on a journey into the hyper odd world of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.

    This movie seems to go out of it’s way to avoid any line that was used in the first adaptation starting Gean Wilder. Out side of the name and occupation, theses do not seem to be the same characters and are not in the same movie. In fact this film has much more in common with the first Burten/Deep film, Edward Scissorhands, than Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

    Here Willy is an insecure recluse who is bulled by the children he has invited into his world. He is mocked for the very eccentricity that makes him the spectacle they came to see. The tour reveilles the wonder of the factory, the headstrong nature of the children, and the inner struggle of Willy who is plagued by childhood flashbacks.

    How Was It?

    My expectations were so wrong for this movie, it took some time to adjust. Despite the resumes of the big name’s involved, this is not a dark movie. It is a fun weird film that looks at the idea of parent – child interaction.

    An example of the deft social criticism is the introduction to Mike Teavee. He spurts off a bunch of info about video games and there technical workings, which are then balanced by a nerves father saying that sometimes they don’t understand what he is saying. Mike, now playing his game, cries out “Die! Die! Die!” As his parents desperately try to hang on to the delusion that they don’t understand.

    From the over indulgent, to the overly competitive, there is a lot for people to see in this mirror held up to modern parenting.

    We find out that “candy isn’t supposed to have a point” but that is not life, there are things that are important in reality and in this film..

    Is It Good For Kids?

    The kids here are often nasty and bad examples. Still you see there negative traits leading directly to there demise (figuratively).

    Parents are either shown as sportive and protective producing good kids, or destructive by letting there kids get “what they want.”

    Once, when Grandpa goes on a cussing rant, we are protected with Charlie as the audio is that of his mother’s hands muffling his ears.

    Check www.ScreenIt.com for a complete break down of elements shown on the screen.

    How about Spiritual Issues?

    In almost every Tim Burten film I have seen, there is usually some slam against Christians. Thankfully this film seem void of such open hostility.

    Halloween is shown in a flashback, but it is just used as a device to introduce Willy’s dad , an uptight candy phobic dentist. All the candy is raped in paper with skulls and spiders, echoing Dr. Wonka’s sentiment on the subject.

    The major theme of this film (and this may be a spoiler, it took me totally by surprise) was the need for properly working, loving, healthy families. This is a fantastic idea, it’s just to bad that the thing most able to bring this about is the faith Burton rejects in his other films.

    What Is Your Recommendation?

    First: Tell your self that this is NOT the book or the Gean Wilder Movie. (and does not have the unfounded character change at the end.)

    Second: Go and enjoy a colorful film with a enlightening back story that may remind you of things in your past but…

    Third: Have a great conversation with the people you see it with about the need for family and the examples of parenting put forth as well as there dramatic results.
