But nevertheless, it’s ironic that we often overlook a topic so relevant and widespread, especially now, 25 years after the film first hit the screens. At the start of the film, Edward Norton’s character (the Narrator) is a disenfranchised white-collar worker suffering from insomnia and absorbed by consumerism. He found this way of living to be shallow and unfulfilling. The most notable scene is where he is seen flipping through an IKEA catalog, obsessing over and purchasing furniture and household textiles … Continued

It takes us on a whirlwind adventure alongside the Frankenstein-esque, enigmatic and impetuous Bella Baxter (portrayed flawlessly by Emma Stone), through imagined places and spaces that typically exist only in our wildest imaginations or in the worlds created in film. Bella’s declaration: “There is a world to enjoy, traverse, circumnavigate… Let us do this” sets the tone for a journey that is as profound as it is exhilarating. After a lifetime confined to the home of her brilliant unorthodox creator Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe) – whom she … Continued

But it didn’t. In fact quite the opposite: Timothée Chalamet‘s portrayal of Willy Wonka exudes charisma and grace, the music is exceptional and the film sets are magical. Intrigued by the fantastical design, I reached out to production designer Nathan Crowley to find out more about the design of the whimsical world of Wonka. The Wonka story While not an official prequel, director Paul King describes Wonka as a … Continued
