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 cat, / 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 ...

Amazing Greys
5 January 2006 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

Thank heavens for Tim Burton. He knows how to make movies. Many people do. But how many do it by having an original notion, a specific, genuinely original tone and then project that into the machinery we have to make movies. Someone like him needs to fight at every step, something that someone like Spielberg just flows with.

So he needs to be supported, rather like Woody Allen, no matter what.

But sometimes he will surprise. For me, those surprises come in small bits, usually parts of movies.

This little thing is so perfectly conceived though. Other than "PeeWee," and "Corpse" this is the only project where the scope of the thing is larger than the timespan.

Plus it has a simple self-referential caste: Vincent the boy who wishes to be Vincent Price, in a story narrated by Vincent himself. A movie about a life about movies, A movie by Burton about the young Burton. An antiSeuss, using the Seuss cadence.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
