A masterpiece, 9 September 2004
Author: Kristine (kristinedrama14@msn.com) from Chicago, Illinois

God, I cannot stress this enough: TIM BURTON IS A Genius! "Vincent" was one of Tim's first films. Actually, first ideas. He has a very interesting imagination when it comes to this film. It reminded me a lot of Edgar Allen Poe. In some ways, I think Tim is the new Edgar Allen Poe of our day. His movies are strange and sad at the same time. Scary and fun. It could go on and on. And the film is narrated by his childhood icon, Vincent Price. So it does add a little haunting texture. I would recommend this for Tim Burton fans. Just get "Nightmare before Christmas". It's at the end. It's a fantastic short. I think you'll like it.
