Description

Join Johnny Depp – pre-teen heart-throb turned wino forever – for a retrospective on every film in his entire career, even the ones we didn’t watch, in order to ask... what happened? Bring your Edward Scissorhand poems, your Gilbert Grape anecdotes and Jack Sparrow memorabilia to toss onto the shrine turned dumpster fire Depp has created for himself. Part ritual and part drunken singalong, Johnny Depp: A Retrospective features rum, promiscuity and $30,000 worth of candles which we can pay for to watch the rich consume us all.
