Excited to see Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Alice? Get your Depp fix early - peek at these mad moments in From Hell, where he's a drug-taking inspector following Jack the Ripper down the Freemasons' rabbit hole.
Based on the Alan Moore comic From Hell, this Hughes Brothers adaptation captured the psychosis of the original if not its depth. Depp is a detective who gets psychic flashes when he takes drugs - and damn, he takes a lot of them. I love the half-naked absinthe scene, and his many opium den visions. As he tries to solve the mystery of Jack the Ripper, he gradually realizes that there's a conspiracy going on that reaches from the heights of power to the degraded blood that runs in London's gutters.
Also, did I mention the half-naked absinthe drinking?
