MoMA Honoree Tim Burton on Boyhood, Boredom and Beautiful Burbank: VIDEO

burton_moma_250.jpg

When Movieline dropped by the Museum of Modern Art a while back for a preview of the Tim Burton exhibition opening there this weekend, the director offered up a bounty of fun insights about everything from Mars Attacks! to his recently unearthed Hansel and Gretel. Also among them was Burton's recollection of his youth in sunny Burbank, where he grew up cultivating his artistic side in a suburban hell he couldn't wait to escape. "Have you ever seen Dante's Inferno?" he rhetorically asked the MoMA gathering; Burton elaborates in a video after jump.

The Burton exhibition opens Sunday, Nov. 22, at MoMA, and runs through April 26 of next year. It includes drawings, paintings, storyboards, costime sketches and a complete retrospective of his film and animation work. Come to New York and enjoy, but never forget: We owe it all to Burbank.

  • I am extremely happy that Tim was able to break free of the oppressive environs of Burbank and find his true self -- by working in . . . uh, the film industry.

    And I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be only me or does it look as if like some
    of the remarks look like coming from brain dead folks?
