O curta perdido do Tim Burton

Na minha opinião, esse curta é a coisa mais assustadora e perturbada que o Tim Burton fez em toda a sua carreira. 
"Hansel and Gretel" (aqui no Brasil virou "João e Maria") foi filmado em 1982. Foi um dos primeiros curtas do Tim Burton e passou no Disney Channel apenas uma vez no Halloween de 1983.
No curta, a fábula dos irmãos Grimm ganha uma versão onde todos os atores são asiáticos e tanto a bruxa quanto a madrasta das crianças são interpretadas de um modo que beira o surreal por um ator japonês chamado Michael Yama. 
Com direito à algumas cenas repugnantes, esse curta faz lembrar a época em que Tim Burton costumava ser genial.

Música para um sábado qualquer | "Runnin' Down a Dream" - Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers


Runnin' Down a Dream
Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and del were singin little runaway
I was flyin'

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
Hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was un-stoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I rolled on; the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waiting down this road
I'm pickin up whatever is mine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream
