Interesting review. How do you feel about the theory, which seems to have a lot of very valid points, that Willy Wonka in the movie was a serial killer?

Note that the novel was called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but the film people realized the INTERESTING person was Wonka and changed the title.
I've heard they're making a Young Wonka movie.
(The author thought Charlie was more interesting, and wrote a sequel about Charlie that nobody cares about.)
The child actors said that the scene where the boat goes through the tunnel as Wonka sings was very scary! But the lines were pretty much straight from the novel. Gene Wilder gave it his unique spin, which I think was an improvement from the hyperactive, rude old man in the novel.

A serial killer? Really?
It to is supposed to look like he was a old crotchety man but at end we see it was only to weed out all but the pure heart.
My take anyway.

At the end (in both novel and movie), Wonka says he is getting old; in the novel, which portrays him as an old man, he says he is older than he looks!
