'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory'
Gene Wilder, start to finish, is more the mad hatter than chocolate factory tour guide. The worst was the psychedelic boat ride on the river of chocolate. Trippy and traumatizing. That worm on the man's lip? Wonka's scary lullaby? Are the fires of hell a glowing? Is the grizzly reaper mowing? Yes! The danger must be growing for the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing!
