Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter From Alice In Wonderland


Not a lot of people remark on it but the quality of acting is a bit like sports in so much as the quality has risen to an extraordinary level over the last fifty years. So much so there's not much improvement left. 

I've got a soft spot for Americans doing exceptional British characters and accents, so after watching Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland with Johnny Depp doing the finest Mad Hatter I can imagine, I've put him alongside Brad Pitt's gypsy character from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels for extraordinary acting performances that leave me full of admiration and respect.

Anybody got an unusual interpretation of the story? I'm all ears.
