Some of Depp's most well-known movies are his collaborations with director Tim Burton. Their first collaboration was Depp's portrayal of the title character in Burton's "Edward Scissorhands" in 1990, and the film's success prompted the two to continue working together. Other collaborations between Depp and Burton include "Alice in Wonderland," "Ed Wood," "Dark Shadows" and "Sleepy Hollow." Depp's performances in Burton's films have earned him a reputation for playing over-the-top, eccentric characters.
Depp has found critical success outside of his work with Burton, such as his role as Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl," for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. Depp also earned Oscar nominations for his work in "Finding Neverland" and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street." Depp has also made appearances in gangster movies, with roles including the title character in "Donnie Brasco," James "Whitey" Bulger in "Black Mass" and John Dillinger in "Public Enemies."
