This is an odd little film, supposedly a biography of Edgar Allen Poe. With some striking fantasy visuals and a fine performance by Walthall, this is a very worthwhile and unique "art" film. Least successful is the attempted humour when Edgar and his pal compete for the affections of a maiden. Most successful is a recreation of the "Raven" poem. Some of the plot elements make no sense suggesting that the print I saw was incomplete, but as a tribute to Poe it is most effective.
