For­get the ropey Tim Bur­ton re­make from last decade. This semi-psy­che­delic ’70s take on the in­com­pa­ra­ble novel by Roald Dahl stands as the de­fin­i­tive ver­sion. The cast­ing of Gene Wilder in the ti­tle role is the key: there is a crazed, yet know­ing, glint in his eye that sug­gests the world of cor­po­rate con­fec­tionery is sil­lier and more sin­is­ter than we will ever know.
