Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ★★★★

It's intriguing to see this as an adult and realise it was filmed in West Germany - copies of Der Spiegel at the newsstand, posters for Lufthansa on the town walls. And I'd forgotten how long the film makes you wait before Gene Wilder's memorable entrance - a full 45 minutes, nearly half the runtime. Nice to see Tim Brooke-Taylor in his prime in a small cameo too.
