...Also, is it me or has Helana Bonhim Carter become just comic relief. I don't think I've seen her play a different character in any film...
I don't think Mrs. Lovett, Dr. Hoffman, Mme. Thenardier and the witch in Big Fish are the same character. But she seems determined to channel Elsa Lanchester in all her recent roles. Perhaps she and Ian McNiece should do a Lanchester/Laughton biopic?
Or she could at least do an album of risque Cockney songs.
I was thinking more along the lines of her character in Alice in Wonderland, here, and the Harry Potter Films. It's that crazy "comic" character that just feels really familiar. Like I said, I don't think I've seen her in a serious role at all.
