    Well he does make excellent use of shadows and darkness... it shows in every film of his that I've seen. And when I say darkness, I'm not just talking about the lighting... the darkness appears in the storyline and the characters as well.

    Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, The nightmare before Christmas, The Batman movies... the darkness in them all is a recurrent theme.
    His new one, Big Fish... has a typically dark Burtonesque quality to it from what I've seen in the trailer.

    Without doing too much strenuous work i would also say Tim Burton has gothic images imprinted on his retina - if you didn't spot that before, give up the project now

    he's got a pretty twisted imagination, this quote i stole from the IMDB seems to sum him up

    "You don't know whether chimps are going to kill you or kiss you. They're very open on some levels and much more evil in a certain way."
