Quotes

Narrator: Vincent Malloy is seven years old, / He's always polite and does what he's told. / For a boy his age he's considerate and nice, / But he wants to be just like Vincent Price. / He doesn't mind living with his sister, dog and cats, / Though he'd rather share a home with spiders and bats. / There he could reflect on the horrors he's invented, / And wander dark hallways alone and tormented. / Vincent is nice when his aunt comes to see him, / But imagines dipping her in wax for his wax museum. / He ...

Expressionistic epic...
26 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

VINCENT is the dark tale of a young man whose innermost desires drive him to the brink of madness. His is a lonely, tormented existence. The Expressionistic environment through which he moves is the lightless landscape of the mentally ill. His obsession is overwhelming: he would gladly forego the dubious pleasures of a "normal" life in favor of a life led deep in the depths of the shadows. And, as he sinks deeper and deeper into his morose mindset, one thing becomes painfully clear: this young man is on the fast track to a rubber room. One can almost HEAR the tortured cry of a soul in despair as he moves listlessly from place to place, his head hung low. The weight of the world virtually rests on his sagging shoulders. But it's the EYES that reflect the innermost pain; the EYES that mirror the shattered soul within the humbled husk as it trudges along. A simple walk up the stairs becomes the scaling of an emotional Everest. Perhaps only the late Charles Addams could relate to this lost soul (for there was, in the eyes of Addams's characters, reflected the same soul-searing pain we find in the eyes of the boy called "Vincent")... A brilliant, moving portrait of a young man in search of his soul.
